Shifting Ops Left - A DevOps Journey


DevOps means different things to different people. Is DevOps a philosophy or a methodology or a set of practices? Should there even be a DevOps Team or even a Job Title. Hey, What about Culture?

DevOps is not one size fits all. DevOps is a journey that should evolve to meet the business needs.

Throughout my career, I have always worn some type of Ops hat from Help Desk, System Administration to Sr Director of DevOps. A common thread within these roles has been to get Ops involved sooner, be part of the process and not be the bottleneck.

In this talk, I am going to give a DevOps perspective from the Ops side. I will share my experiences and lessons learned that have shaped my approach to DevOps. The journey to shift Ops to the left (and challenges to keep left in Agile environments).
