DevOps can greatly accelerate velocity and efficiency. The challenge is how best to transform a large-scale enterprise with established processes and systems.

Andy is the founder of the LeedsDevOps group which been running for 2 years and is attracting large crowds and speakers from a range of local and national DevOps players. He's recently presented an ignite at DevOpsDays Paris.

The talk comprises of two parts, in the first Andy traces the roots of DevOps back to 2008 and discuss its evolution into an approach to make the make the SDLC more productive and less painful. He'll look at definitions of CAMS, LEAN and how team structure plays an important part in DevOps success.
