What we're about

DevOps Sydney meetup is about learning and sharing about DevOps movement - culture, practices and tools.

This is a group for professionals, hackers, managers, and engineers - from development and operations backgrounds.

#### What is DevOps?

DevOps is a movement of passionate software developers and operations engineers who want to break down the walls and improve the relationship between between development, operations, and the rest of the business.

DevOps can be summarised into 4 key points (http://www.opscode.com/blog/2010/07/16/what-devops-means-to-me/), known as CAMS:

• Culture: People over technology. If you don’t have culture, all automation attempts will be fruitless.

• Automation: This is one of the places you start once you understand your culture, by stitching together an automation fabric that reflects your shared culture and understanding.

• Measurement: If you can’t measure, you can’t improve. Teams doing devops successfully will measure everything as often as they can… performance metrics, process metrics, and even people metrics.

• Sharing: sharing is the feedback loop in the CAMS cycle. Creating a culture where people share ideas and problems is critical. The other people in your team aren't the enemy - the problem you're trying to solve is.

🕺Devops without the Cloud: what to do when you're on bare metal — Colin Douch

In today's world of Cloud systems, it's become easier than ever to innovate and scale systems quickly. Given tools like auto scaling, compute on demand, and managed services, modern Engineering teams can cut straight to the heart of their implementations, without having to worry about traditional infrastructure concerns. In some cases however, you may not have the ability (or desire) to use such modern conveniences. In such a case, what can be done to maintain our DevOps feedback loop, and improve our Engineering velocity?

Colin Douch is an SRE at Cloudflare, working on their Observability Platform, with over 10 years experience working across DevOps organisations. In this talk, he will compare and contrast the traditional on-prem environment with Cloud based environments, give an insight into where the difficulties lie for those of us who have never seen a server before, and explain some procedures and best practices for working with bare metal to enable fast paced Engineering environments.
