DevOps + Open Source == BFF Practices!


Open Source tools are incredibly popular in the DevOps community. And with good reason: They're easily obtained, shared, and modified, and
you can often help to identify and rapidly fix bugs that affect your work; at an increasing number of organizations, employees are encouraged to participate in open source projects and share their fixes, improvements, or ideas. But participating in open source projects doesn't simply improve the quality of the incoming pieces of your infrastructure. Your organization also gains an important feedback loop they can understand and even influence the project direction -- while learning or refining community behaviors that are critical to the success of any Devops-practicing organization. This session provides an overview of DevOps (practice, theory, and otherwise!), identifies shared habits of successful open source communities and DevOps practitioners, and provides tips for how you or your organization can start applying these habits today.
