Title: DevOps in Azure
Abstract: DevOps, with its principles of collaboration, rapid iteration and continuous cloud deployments, is all about maximizing the velocity of software delivery. Traditional waterfall approaches with their risk minimization strategies do not allow for fast software release cycles; DevOps philosophy is one way to remediate that. Microsoft has been working closely with HashiCorp, the company behind Vagrant and Terraform products (among other popular OSS offerings), over the past 9 months to enable DevOps in Azure for both Open Source and Microsoft-based workloads. In this talk, we’ll share what we’ve learned about the enterprises adopting DevOps and how Azure customers can benefit from bringing those practices to their cloud application delivery today.
Bio: Eugene Chuvyrov is a Cloud Architect with Microsoft. He helps companies in the San Francisco Bay area extend, migrate and take full advantage of Microsoft Azure, including encouraging them to use HashiCorp tools as part of their journey to the cloud. Prior to Microsoft, Eugene worked as a software engineer across multiple platforms and dev stacks, from .Net to Python and even R.
