Presentation Summary:
The term DevOps did not use to be widely known, now it has become a fairly common term. With that wide adoption also comes misuse and misunderstanding. Join Tom as he talks about his journey through modern software development and his quest for the adoption of the culture and mindset of DevOps rather than making it a a title that causes recruiters emails to flood his inbox. This will be an interactive session where Tom shares stories and examples from the last several years of building teams and changing cultures within organizations in Portland.
