DevOps is radically changing the way organizations deliver software, but what about organizations where the ops and dev teams feel like they are far away from being able to influence the product? In this environment, operations teams are focused on supporting product features that have been written by a throw-it-over-the-wall style development team and they feel the best they can do is put out fires. Development teams are also at a loss in this type of organization because they feel like they have no insight into how their code runs and no control over the customer experience with features being released weeks or even sometimes months after they are complete.

In 2009, shortly after 'DevOps' was coined, our organization adopted DevOps as our approach to delivering software as a service. At that point we would have adopted anything if we thought it would help and to our surprise DevOps changed everything. Our talk focuses on our experiences working in DevOps teams over the last 4 years in several organizations and our goal is to give you pragmatic practices we have seen work firsthand. The goal is to have you walk away with knowledge to begin your DevOps journey or if you are already doing DevOps, to improve it.

DevOps is often championed in organizations where the end product is software-as-a-service--and for good reason as it directly impacts customers but even if you aren’t in the software-as-a-service business devops can transform how you deliver products. This talk walks through how to transform any team into a DevOps team. We will address how Ops influences Dev teams and how Dev influences Ops teams, however it can't stop there--we will show you how to involve test, product management, security and even customers into your DevOps revolution.
