Presentation: What mix of DevOps "things" will fit my needs?

Navigating DevOps tools and techniques can be a daunting task, even for the most seasoned DevOps engineers. The landscape is always evolving. New tools surface, old tools get out-performed or unsupported and tried and true tools gain new features and footing. The goal of this session is to surface a mix of DevOps "things" that offer the best (or close to best) solution for real-world development team scenarios.

We will cover some basic topics, define some common use-cases, then apply the DevOps approaches that would best fit the technical and business needs in the scenario.

- Identify common "needs" profiles (e.g., independents, agencies, single dev teams, enterprise dev teams)
- Identify common "scope" profiles (e.g., single project, many projects, complex product w/ integrations)
- Identify common DevOps tool implementation profiles (e.g., self-hosted, SaaS models, hybrid solutions)
- Define environmental considerations (e.g., dev staff skills, time / budget constraints, legal requirements)
- Define common Software PM methods (e.g., Agile / Scrum, Kanban, Waterfall, Giddy-up Cowboy, Eyes Wide Shut)
- Some technical knowledge of N-tier web application architecture. If I lost you with that sentence (it really dates me), the following roles will find value in this talk:
- Technical Project Managers
- Dev / IT Departmental Leads
- Agency tech folks
- Business / Technical Analysts
- Developers Takeaways
- A method to articulate different DevOps approaches independent of tool names. Tool examples will be provided.
- Terms and terminology that resonate beyond the DevOps engineers. (i.e., The People With The Money)
- A sense of the "recipe" of tools and DevOps solutions are close to your needs as a starting point. Stay in touch: join us on slack:
