What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
The theme for this event is broader than DevOps but definitely aligned with its goals of more humane, healthier working environments.
Today's organizations need to consider the social nature of technical systems, including ensuring psychological safety, building resilience, shifting from blaming to learning, and more!
We are extremely happy to welcome Tom Geraghty, transformation lead at Red Hat Open Innovation Labs, and Eduardo da Silva, sociotechnical architect at bol.com (the largest online retailer in Belgium and the Netherlands), with two excellent talks!
NOTE: START TIME IS 18H30 PORTUGAL TIME (GMT+1)

TALK #1: DevOps + Resilience Engineering + Psychological Safety = Resilient Organizations
Speaker: Tom Geraghty
Resilience Engineering is a multi-disciplinary field of applied research that has progressed over the past few decades, and is now gaining traction in the DevOps domain. This talk explores what Resilience Engineering is, what it isn't, and how you can apply the principles of Resilience Engineering in your teams and organisations.
Tom is Transformation Lead at Red Hat Open Innovation Labs, and has over 15 years experience leading and managing technology teams in a range of contexts. He is passionate about the importance of psychological safety to high performance, and believes that not only does culture trump strategy, but happiness precedes success.
TALK #2: Scaling & Evolving Tech Orgs - Socio-Technical Traits, Patterns and Use Cases
Speaker: Eduardo da Silva
Product Thinking and DevOps are key to enable (Tech) Orgs increasing their ability to build better products at higher velocity. However, in order to continuously maximize the value exchange with the customer, we must consider all the socio-technical systems in the product development activities. All of these are continuously changing: customers, markets, organizations and teams evolve and products technical architecture will follow. Change is unavoidable, which means organizations must strive for operating models and systems that embrace it.
In this talk I will discuss several interesting traits to consider on the different (socio-technical) systems in order to maximize the org's ability to cope with such changes and evolution. For each trait I will share patterns of evolution and use cases, e.g.: evolving Data Science & ML operating models as function of org size and complexity; evolving Platform Teams from operations to product mindset; evolving technical leadership from pure informal networks to the addition of structural enabling teams, etc. These are patterns and use cases I observed over the last four years while working in different initiatives to "scale and evolve" bol.com.
Eduardo is a Tech Leader and Sociotechnical Architect with a solid academic background (PhD in Computer Science) and hands-on experience on (co-)designing and building software-based products and organizations (strategies, teams, capabilities, platforms, etc.).
