Deconstructing the DevOps Hype

This event has passed


"DevOps", along with other IT buzzwords like block chain, containerization, modern data, and machine learning, have become mandatory terms for use in technology talks. But what exactly is DevOps? And if it's so great why are so few companies doing it well? In this talk, Daniel Brown will break down the various approaches that companies take toward DevOps. He will decipher the industry noise so that DevOps can be understood by everyone from the junior level developer to the C-level executives.
