Destroying DevOps Culture Anti-Patterns

The tech industry aligns with DevOps being a set of practices and culture that an organization uses to deliver operational excellence. DevOps should not be a team, tools, or something you hire a consultant for. In development or operations practices anti-patterns are behaviors that crop up which hinder the best efforts of an organization. Learn to how to identify these DevOps Culture Anti-patterns (like tribal knowledge, silos, etc.), and then attack them in specific ways to resolve these issues.

  • Tribal Knowledge
  • Super Hero Culture
  • Silos
  • Centralized Decision Making
  • Quality at the end of the development process
  • Information Hoarding
  • Manual processes

How you respond to and learn to change from failures will determine the outcome of your journey. A DevOps journey is just that, a road in which the final state is always reset once you cross the finish line and head towards the new goal.

Unbreakable. Perfect: The Craft of Code

The best welders create seams so perfect that flaws cannot be detected even by an X-ray. Most welders will never get there. Code is no different. Do you write code that ‘works’ or code that is crafted so perfectly it will never show a flaw? We will explore timeless principles that make great code: recognizing code smells, writing for testability, keeping things simple and clear. Many of these ideas were written down decades ago, but are still ignored. The most important first step is viewing code as a craft, something that is done for it’s own sake rather than something hacked out to solve a problem. In this session, you’ll learn how to create a plan for steady improvements. Syntax, languages, frameworks all fade away. A mindset that is focused on craft will never fail.
