Kill DevOps

Tuesday 3:20pm - 3:50pm, itSMFnz (itSMF Main Room)

"If you think that you’ve found it, think again, because you never will."

This ancient Zen saying about a monk's journey towards enlightenment and awakening is the inspiration behind the presentation title ‘Kill DevOps’.

DevOps is about continuous experimentation and learning.

DevOps brought Agile’s value proposition closer to the users by speeding up deployment (and more!).

However no value is realised until the users actually use well-conceived systems.

This is often the weakest link, so we need to extend our reach, and the presentation will show you how to do this.
