What we're about

Follow us on Twitter: @DevOpsZH (https://twitter.com/devopszh)

Our meetup group is a community platform for everyone interested in DevOps. No matter if you are a front-end designer, backend developer, tester, team lead or system administrator – if you’re passionate about the DevOps movement you are welcome! We want to share experiences, new information and learnings. Our focus will be on DevOps topics ranging from implementing DevOps culture, DevOps in a legacy system or DevOps in Leadership to scaling DevOps, DevOps Enterprise, and ITSM and DevOps. If you’re in and around Zurich and interested in a DevOps Community, come by!

We do not want any sales pitches on our site, as we want this to be a healthy exchange of experiences and focus on the community aspect. For this reason, please contact one of the organisers before posting something on our dashboard. We will check if it complies with our guidelines and get back to you!

John is known as one of the founding fathers of DevOps. In this Fireside chat we want to talk with him about DevOps Transformations: what they need to work and why still some fail. A fireside chat is an informal, yet structured interview between a moderator and a guest. It's a great opportunity to hear personal experiences from the guest, gain a deeper understanding and to jointly develop new ideas. As we want this conversion to be interactive we invite our participants to activly join the discussion between the moderator and the guest by asking questions via the chat function. Speaker: John Willis is Senior Director of the Global Transformation Office at Red Hat Prior to Red Hat, he was the Director of Ecosystem Development for Docker, which he joined after the company he co-founded (SocketPlane, which focused on SDN for containers) was acquired by Docker in February 2015. Previous to founding SocketPlane in Fall 2014, John was the Chief DevOps Evangelist at Dell, which he joined following the Enstratius acquisition in May 2013. He has also held past executive roles at Chef and Canonical. John was one of the earliest cloud evangelists and is considered one of the founders of the Devops movement. John is the author of 7 IBM Redbooks. He is also the co-author of the “Devops Handbook” and “Beyond the Phoenix Project” along with author Gene Kim.

DevOpsTuesDays: Security Learns to Sprint

Online event

You need to register here for the event: https://www.bigmarker.com/devopstuesdays-zurich/Security-Learns-to-Sprint-Tanya-Janca Abstract: This talk will argue that DevOps could be the best thing to happen to application security since OWASP, if developers and operations teams are enabled to make security a part of their everyday work. With a ratio of 100/10/1 for Development, Operations, and Security, security now needs to concentrate on creating tools, processes and opportunities for dev and ops that result in more-secure products, instead of trying to do it all themselves like they did in days past. We must build security into each of “The Three Ways”; automating and/or improving efficiency of all security activities to ensure we don’t slow down developers, speeding up feedback loops for security related activities so that we fix the bugs faster and sooner, and providing continuous learning opportunities in relation to security, for both teams. Security can no longer be a gate or stumbling block, and ‘adding security in’ can no longer be used as a justification for project delays. If developers are sprinting, then we need to sprint too. So put on your running shoes; it’s time for DevSecOps! Speaker: Tanya Janca, also known as ‘SheHacksPurple’, is the founder, security trainer and coach of SheHacksPurple.dev, specializing in software and cloud security. Her obsession with securing software runs deep, from starting her company, to running her own OWASP chapter for 4 years in Ottawa, co-founding a new OWASP chapter in Victoria, and co-founding the OWASP DevSlop open-source and education project. With her countless blog articles, workshops and talks, her focus is clear. Tanya is also an advocate for diversity and inclusion, co-founding the international women’s organization WoSEC, starting the online #CyberMentoringMonday initiative, and personally mentoring, advocating for and enabling countless other women in her field. As a professional computer geek of 20+ years, she is a person who is truly fascinated by the ‘science’ of computer science.
