Agile has been an astounding success in the development community, but DevOps – which closes the gap between devs and infrastructure – seems to be lagging behind. Companies are experiencing some serious growing pains in trying to adopt a change-management friendly culture on their road to DevOps maturity. Let’s push beyond book knowledge and buzz words and talk frankly about what is really going on in Portland today on the DevOps scene. One local company, SureID, has experienced some great successes and some hard-won lessons in adopting DevOps over a period of several years. Come hear what they’ve learned and leave with a practical roadmap and metrics-based goals that you can take back to your company in your own journey!
We’ll cover the following areas:
• Why culture comes first – using the lessons of General Motors

• Tools that sparkle – using Octopus to handle release management, and TeamCity for monitoring and op insights, Chef and Puppet for configuration management and deployment.
• Cool dashboards you can build yourself to spark interest
