      Where the Good People Are

    • While "DevOps" is a very overrated and misused marketing term, we have many DevOps stories from around the world proving that shared responsibility between Dev and Ops can work out really well.

      A key component of DevOps is open communication and feedback loops. Monitoring data is one source of these feedback loops. Too often, however, this is only done in Operations for firefighting and root cause analysis. Kevin will discuss approaches of Shifting-Left Performance into the Continuous Delivery Pipeline to give earlier and faster performance, scalability and architectural feedback to developers, testers, architects and business.

      The presentation will include some hands-on experience on how to bake monitoring into DevOps tool chains such as JIRA, Bitbucket, Jenkins, Git, HipChat, JMeter, … - there should be something for everyone who wants to learn some new tips & tricks on how to become more “DevOps’y”
