Eliminating ‘over the fence’ – blurring the lines between developers and Operations

Eliminating ‘over the fence’ – blurring the lines between developers and Operations

Session Summary

With increasing popularity of agile development methodologies and growing demand for rapid deployment strategies, it is increasingly important to strive towards reduction (and preferably elimination) of differences between the various stages of application development and deployment. At the same time, it is important for all team members to take part in decreasing time between writing code and deploying that code to production.

Likewise, every person should have a hand in increasing uptime, performance, and client satisfaction. This talk will focus on what a “DevOps” culture entails and how developers and Operations can work together to ensure delivery of high quality software while maintaining high availability and scalability.
