DevOps is fscked
DevOps has long been the bridge between engineering and operations. While it undoubtedly served its purpose in the trajectory of software engineering, the truth is, it’s no longer relevant.

Thanks to the rise of fully automated platforms such as Kubernetes, and service providers like Codefresh, developers can now reach new levels of autonomy and ownership by consuming cloud services directly. That means no more reliance on a few individuals who hold exclusive knowledge about infrastructure management.

In this talk, we be discussing Productivity Engineering – an emerging trend that aims to reduce cognitive load so that engineers can devote the majority of their attention to delivering value. By carefully choosing which service providers best enable developers, we can reach new levels of productivity.

7:00 pm: Arrival
7:15 pm: Talk followed by a Q&A session
8:00 pm: Networking
9:30 pm: End of the event
As always our Leaders in Tech events are free of charge and drinks and some snacks will be provided.
