How DevOps messes with your head

Wednesday 10:40am - 11:50am, itSMFnz (itSMF Main Room)

Sooner or later we will all need to make the lateral shift in mindset required by challenging concepts borne out of DevOps.

DevOps is a strong leading indicator of our IT future. Your IT fundamental axioms will be challenged.
