  • Beyond DevOps: Growing Resilient and Scalable Organizations

    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!

    TENTATIVE AGENDA

    18h30 - 19h15 : TALK #1
    19h15 - 19h30 : Q&A
    19h30 - 20h15 : TALK #2
    20h15 - 20h30 : Q&A

    =========

    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.).

    Talk - An agile thinking tool for building a DevOps culture
    Speaker: Lisa Crispin

    When Brian Marick created the agile testing quadrants model back in 2003, the terms “continuous delivery” and “DevOps” had yet to be coined. Nevertheless, agile teams embraced continuous integration and worked towards having at least one passing build per day, producing an artifact that was potentially production-quality. The quadrants are a thinking tool that helps teams discuss, plan and execute technology- and business-facing testing activities to guide development and evaluate their product. Using the quadrants model helped teams work together to nurture a quality-focused DevOps style culture.
    Today, continuous delivery is still a far-off dream for many teams. We have a wider range of tools and infrastructure to manage. For example, building quality into distributed systems in the cloud requires additional approaches that weren’t important 10 or 20 years ago. There’s no shortage of technology or tools to enable continuous integration, and, learning the skills to take advantage of that technology takes time. In this session, we’ll explore how teams moving towards continuous delivery can apply the agile testing quadrants to help build quality into software products in our continuous world.
    This will be an interactive session, with opportunity for small group discussions and Q&A.
    Learning takeaways:
    -A quick overview of DevOps terminology to get us all on the same page
    -How the quadrants have evolved along with modern software development
    -Using the quadrants to fit testing activities into continuous delivery
    -Applying the quadrants to plan a transformation to a DevOps culture

    Lisa Crispin is the co-author, with Janet Gregory, of three books: Agile Testing Condensed: A Brief Introduction, More Agile Testing: Learning Journeys for the Whole Team, Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams; the LiveLessons Agile Testing Essentials video course, and “The Whole Team Approach to Agile Testing” 3-day training course offered through the Agile Testing Fellowship. She is co-founder with Janet of Agile Testing Fellowship, Inc. (www.agiletestingfellow.com).

  • Engineering Reliable Mobile Applications

    Online event

    For our rentrée, we have the pleasure of welcoming Pranjal Deo, Engineering Program Manager at Google, who gave a brilliant talk on blameless postmortems last year at the DevOpsDays Portugal conference.

    This time she will share her lessons learned on mobile engineering, reliability, and the future of SRE for mobile! Don't miss it!

    NOTE: START TIME IS 19H PORTUGAL TIME (GMT+1)

    You need to register for this event to see the Zoom link (under "Online event").

    =========

    TALK: Engineering Reliable Mobile Applications
    Speaker: Pranjal Deo

    In today’s day & age, many services are being accessed by users through a client application on mobile. What’s the point of five 9s of server availability, if the productionized app is unreliable for users? This talk explains the importance, challenges and best practices of client-side reliability.

    Why Mobile and SRE (Site Reliability Engineering)?

    - Mobile is nonuniform and uncontrollable
    - SRE responsibilities differ in critical ways from infrastructure or server-side application reliability engineering
    - Focus on where your end users are (i.e. today many users access services through mobile applications)
    - Specific challenges of mobile: Monitoring, Release management, Incident management

    Future of SRE for Mobile:

    - Visibility into mobile application performance
    - Find and react to issues before the user does
    - Measure SLIs throughout the product stack (from client to service)

    Pranjal Deo is an Engineering Program Manager at Google. Graduated as an Electrical engineer, started as a test automation engineer, then software engineer and took on DevOps (including disaster recovery) responsibilities at her previous company, where she graduated into the role of a Lead App Performance analyst.

  • Mary Poppendieck on Six Decades of Software Engineering

    Online event

    Yet another very special guest. Mary Poppendieck has been at the forefront of our industry throughout her career. She was one of the first practitioners to bring Lean ideas into software development, well before they were popularized by DevOps and Agile in the last couple of decades.

    Mary will share her experience and major themes throughout six decades of software engineering, from mainframes to DevOps!

    Don't miss this chance to hear from a luminary in our field!

    NOTE: START TIME IS 19H PORTUGAL TIME (GMT+1)

    =========

    TALK: Six Decades of Software Engineering
    Speaker: Mary Poppendieck

    Mainframes were born in the 1960’s, along with the earliest electronic telephone switching systems. Minicomputers arrived in the 70’s, and so did ARPANET. PC’s came of age the 80’s, as well as languages that were so simple we figured anyone could use them. This led to many a disaster – from bloated, unmaintainable corporate systems to medical device failures. And so the 90’s became the decade of heavy process; but it was also the decade that open source software came of age.

    Then along came Y2K, which brought us the Internet companies, Agile software development, and the decade of teams. Try as they might to be autonomous, the teams inherited monolithic databases and deep dependencies. To solve these problems, the 2010’s became a decade devoted to flow (DevOps) and architecture (microservices). Now in the 2020’s our world has changed dramatically, faster than anyone could have imagined, and we have to learn how to change our software just as fast.

    From my first ‘Hello World’ in 1961, I’ve watched software migrate from automating business processes, to a product in its own right, to a fundamental element of our infrastructure. This talk will cover some of the early principles behind great software engineering that are as true today as they were a half-century ago; and it will cover a few mistakes we made that we do not need to repeat.

    Mary Poppendieck has been in the Information Technology industry for over fifty years. She has managed software development, supply chain management, manufacturing operations, and new product development. She spearheaded the implementation of an early Just-in-Time production system and led new product development teams that commercialized products ranging from digital controllers to 3M Light Fiber™.

    A popular writer and speaker, Poppendieck is the coauthor of four books: Lean Software Development, 2003. Implementing Lean Software Development, 2006. Leading Lean Software Development, 2009, and Lean Mindset, 2013.

  • Meetup #50 with Special Guest: Patrick Debois

    Online event

    For our meetup #50, we have a very special guest, none other than Patrick Debois who coined the term #DevOps that we know today. He also started the DevOpsDays conferences which expanded to all corners of the world.

    This is a meetup you do not want to miss: an insightful talk about trust, tools, DevOps, DevSecOps, and more. Followed by the unique opportunity to ask Patrick everything you always wanted to know about DevOps! For instance, why is it called DevOps? Why is there no common definition of what DevOps is? Time to be curious and engaged!

    If you're not familiar with Patrick's early work on DevOps, this is a good starting point: https://www.infoq.com/interviews/debois-devops

    =========

    TALK: Trust Me, We're Doing DevSecOps
    Speaker: Patrick Debois

    Many of the Dev*Ops talks revolve around tools and culture. There are some good, fascinating talks all shouting: “All for the great (business) good!” Yet, they rarely address topics at the interpersonal, relationship level. Pipelines and automation increases our confidence in the process, but does it increase our trust in people? Are we really asking the right questions when we adopt a new tool or do yet another company transformation?

    1. We start the talk by looking into different models of trust (the currency of trust, faith vs trust, trust vs beliefs...); 2. Translate them to day-to-day activities in organisations (reviewing a pull request, security audits, the backlog graveyard, full stack development...); 3. How trends like DevOps and DevSecOps relate to trust and confidence (autonomous teams, you build it you run it, hiring for remote...); 4. As an extra bonus we will hold a mirror to ourselves while exploring how we trust tools (how we pick an OSS library, select a SaaS solution, the Ikea Effect, chaos engineering...); 5. Finally we validate how we can make ourselves more trustworthy (borrowing from Promise Theory)

    I have no psychology degree, but given my grey hair and lots of stories from the trenches, I hope you can trust me enough to give you an entertaining and thoughtful talk.

    Patrick is Director of Dev (heart) Ops Relations at Snyk (snyk.io). He's an eternal implementor and pragmatic researcher and he released #devops onto the world through devopsdays (devopsdays.org).

  • ONLINE - Building CI/CD Pipelines

    Online event

    This month our ONLINE meetup will feature two talks on building CI/CD pipelines. It can be daunting to build the "right" pipeline, which ensures correct and sufficient tests and release criteria is verified before deployment to production.

    We will hear about two real-world pipeline implementations, including the challenges they faced and how they dealt with them.

    =========

    TALK #1: Load testing UK’s biggest food publisher using AWS & Artillery

    Speaker: João Tiago, Software Engineer at YLD

    I want to guide you on the journey at this particular client where our main focus was to deliver a CI/CD pipeline solution. The scope of our engagement widened once we noticed a new major version of the app was on the verge to be deployed without validation if it handled production-like traffic.

    Let me walk you through how we designed a Load Testing Platform integrated into the CI Pipeline, using Artillery.io and several AWS products. I’ll guide you through our approach and the learning we made along the way.

    João Tiago is a DevOps enthusiast who loves finding simple and elegant solutions to hard problems. When not in front of the black screen, he can be found playing human-chess in the Jiu-Jitsu mats.

    =========

    TALK #2: Automating your Way to Confidence

    Speaker: Miguel Palhas

    We recently re-thinked the way we handle releases within Utrust. The goal was to make everything more agile, automated, and a lot more transparent towards the rest of our company. Around the same time, Github Actions went to public beta, and it ended up fitting our needs nicely. It also turned out that this CI has a lot more to offer than I was previously used to. This talk is about our journey to make better and faster releases.

    Along the way, I'll show examples of how Utrust is handling this process nowadays, as well as some other automations we built for our product team, which ended up saving us tens of hours of headaches during 2019.

    Miguel Palhas is a professional over-engineer at Subvisual. He made the jump from high-performance computing researcher to web developer, where he's been happily hacking for the past few years, mostly writing Ruby and some awesome web animations.

  • ONLINE - Running Blockchain in Production

    Online event

    After the success of our first ONLINE meetup last March (despite the lack of pizza), let's do it again on April 20th!

    NOTE: START TIME IS AT 18h PORTUGAL TIME (one hour earlier than we used to)

    Link to Zoom (videoconference) will be visible on this page on the right side (under "Online event") once you are logged in and registered for this meetup.

    This time we will have a single, longer talk that brings two worlds together: Blockchain and Operations, with a real-world example.

    The event starts at 18:00 sharp, please try to connect on time!

    There will be plenty of time for questions and chatting after the talk!

    =========

    TALK: One Year of Running Blockchain Applications in Production at Vakt
    Speaker: Jatin Bhadra, Head of Ecosystem and Cloud Delivery

    In this talk we will see how VAKT - a digital ecosystem for physical post-trade processing - built and runs a blockchain network. We will look at the design, automation, and support challenges around it, and how we solved them.

    Jatin Bhadra is a technology leader, architect, consultant, and manager with a background in the financial services industry, commodity industry. He also has strong experience in agile, devops, and cloud based system delivery.

    =========

    Remember our guidelines of engagement in the video call, to make sure things run as smoothly as possible:

    1. When you join, you will be kept muted to avoid noise

    2. We ask you to rename yourself to include your name and city/location

    3. Turn on your webcam if you don’t mind, so we can recognize each other’s faces and make this more in-person like :)

    4. After each presentation, there will be a Q&A round

    5. If you have a question, “Raise hand” to let us know OR write it in the chat

    5.1. If you “raise hand”, we will call your name and unmute you so you can ask the question

    5.2. If you write the question in the chat, we will read it out loud

    5.3 Try to limit questions to 1 per talk

    6. Feel free to use the chat for discussions with other participants

    7. We will keep the call open for 10/15m after the talks for further discussion, virtual networking if you like :)

    =========

    IMPORTANT NOTICE: The talks will be recorded and published in the DevOps Lisbon YouTube channel. By signing up for this event you explicitly agree that your image might appear in the video recordings. Nevertheless, you can always get in touch with the organisation ([masked]) to have it removed.
