Agile Essentials: DevOps and SRE
DevOps practices have become so deeply embedded in organizations that they may not even be associated with “agile” anymore — but DevOps grew from agile’s mandate to “deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.” Robust automation of testing, integration, build, deployment, and even compliance checks and release authorization have enabled organizations to operate nimbly, even at a massive scale, and to dramatically shorten the time from code-complete to customer-delight. DevOps’ younger cousin, Site Reliability Engineering (SRE), brings empirical observation and automation into the processes that keep software operating after it’s delivered. This session provides a broad overview of what DevOps and SRE bring to the agile party, and how agile practitioners in all roles – technical, product, design, and coach – can successfully implement DevOps principles and work with DevOps practitioners to maximize reliability and value delivered. Agile Essentials sessions are designed for first-time Agile Alliance conference attendees and anyone new to Agile or looking for a refresh. Each one provides a broad overview of key agile practices and the principles behind them. You’ll leave feeling grounded, up-to-date on the latest agile concepts, and ready to take on new challenges in any role or any agile framework.
