DevOps is about making software better by bringing everyone involved in making software closer together, including (but not limited to): domain experts, architects, developers, designers, testers, security and operations. Richard will take you through the DevOps culture, focusing on people, process and products (in that order). You’ll learn how to get the conversation started between the teams, how to bring the teams closer together, and how to ultimately become one team (we’re all in this together)! Along the way Richard will tell some stories of real-life DevOps initiatives in a variety of organizations - some that were more successful than others! Understanding DevOps is about focusing on what’s important: building and delivering the best software you can.
