There and Back Again (a DevOps journey)


Speaker: Giulio Vian
DevOps Lead, Microsoft MVP, Visual Studio ALM Ranger

Speaker Bio:
His passion started with a TI-57, quickly followed by a Sinclair ZX80 and an Apple II. After a degree and long years consulting dozens of disparate customers on Microsoft technologies, he is now focused on Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and DevOps themes; in spite of what you hear, he is still able to write working code even using up-to-the-minute editors instead of VI.
He is Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP), Visual Studio ALM Rangers since 2010 and likes having the chance to present his point of view because he love sharing experience and chatting.

Session Details:

In this talk, you will hear about the DevOps journey in Glass-Lewis Europe, from the initial brown-field all-manual state, to our current partially automated situation and the strategic destination of a fully automated and monitored process.
In equilibrium between an high-level view and useful practical tips, we will touch on what informed our decisions, in terms of priorities and technologies, some lessons learned in setting up Infrastructure-as-Code using Terraform for Azure, and how the legacy constraints helped or hindered.

All our meetups are free for everyone eager to learn and share knowledge. Spread the word, grow the community.
