with Nathan Fisher
DevOps is a common sense approach to software release cycles. It’s an accumulation of best practices and the agreement that software has no business value until it’s in the hands of its intended user. The best way to do that is ruthless automation to the point where deployments become as simple as pressing a button.
DevOps are people with a multidisciplinary skill set - people who are comfortable with infrastructure and configuration, but also happy to roll up their sleeves, write tests, debug, and ship features. They are basically described as bridge of communication between developers and operations.
Nathan will discuss the technical sides of DevOps, tools and solutions to the problems they are facing.
