SLC DevOps Days 2017: DevOps Panel Discussion Announced & Workshops Added!

DevOps is more than just tools and a pipelines. DevOps is breaking down the silos between culturally different groups: Development, Operations and QA. But where to get started?

While the tools and pipeline have proven more linear and easier to implement, uniting these three groups to implement a culture of shared responsibility between them has been proven that it’s difficult to. Frankly, most organizations either shy away from or skip the cultural shift, essentially returning to siloed business as usual.

DevOps is about rebuilding the trust between Dev, Ops and QA while simultaneously allowing them to move quickly, in concert, to mounting business pressures. Increasing the collaboration between these groups helps build the trust that is so prevalent in high performing organizations.

So how do you do this? Come talk with our panel experts and discuss with them how they have implemented the DevOps Culture in each of their respective organizations.

Panelist Includes:

  • Gwen Dobson – Director of IT Operations & Quality at Waterford Institute
  • Corban Raun – Senior Systems Administrator at Instructure
  • Wes Novack – Systems Engineer at Pluralsight
  • John Esser – Head of IT and Data Center Operations at AdvancedMD.
  • Mike A. Davis – Director Engineering at EMC

You have the opportunity to walk away with three things:

  1. Connections within our local and national community, all facing the same challenges you are,
  2. Inspiration that, yes, it really can be done (even security and database as well as mission critical),
  3. Know how

This year, we are pleased to to now offer you workshops (Know How). This year’s workshops include:

Continuous Compliance with InSpec

InSpec is an open-source testing framework for infrastructure with a human-readable language for specifying compliance, security, and other policy requirements. Easily integrate automated tests that check for adherence to policy into any stage of your deployment pipeline.

Beginning Metrics Collection with InfluxDB and Grafana

In this workshop, attendees will set-up a small time series database, configure it to collect metrics, and create sample dashboards.  This workshop is meant for beginners who want to learn the basics of metrics collection and analysis.  Attendees should bring a workstation running docker if they would like to follow along during the course.  Experience with docker is not required but will be helpful.  A wifi capable device will be necessary to follow along.  All code will be shared after the conference for further study.
