Last minute speaker change: Jennifer Davis @sigje will speak on my behalf! A DevOps professional with pioneering work on the world’s biggest Internet real-time event and web sites from an engineering, operations, content, and marketing perspective. My focus is on people and software development along with system design thinking for the whole life cycle: I can build, grow, and manage teams, applications, networks, and servers to work together while planning and nurturing their continuous improvement. Mark first touched the Internet in 1991 when he was sponsored to do undergraduate research. After graduation and Internet withdrawal, he joined the first national commercial Internet Service Provider (before the world wide web). One of the web masters of Netscape, cnnfn.com, and sgi.com, Mark was part of the world’s largest and earliest media and web sites. Mark progressed to Developer Relations, where he became the JavaScript and LDAP Technology Evangelist. One compliment: “Mark is an engineer who can speak” captures his ability to relate technical subjects to anyone. Mark’s approach mixes software engineering disciplines with art and operations, embracing Internet architecture, real-time media, and the ability to nurture people, developers, networks, and systems to work together. His multidisciplinary practice is complimented by the term DevOps. You can review Mark’s career and endorsements at https://www.linkedin.com/in/marklavi

Speakers: Mark Lavi

A brief history of the DevOps movement and community with a cross section view of many methods and practices that are breaking down the barriers to achieve agility and continuous delivery. For a term that is not even six years old, DevOps remains a mysterious pursuit for many software engineering organizations. DevOps seems intangible: you can't buy it, there is no certification, and frankly, there is no universal definition, yet everyone wants it or already "does" it, but still has trouble identifying it. We will cover these topics so that you can understand and predict your own DevOps future: - A battle tested definition and the cultural rendering of DevOps - A brief history of DevOps - We are all DevOps: the ongoing impact to engineering organizations - The journey to DevOps via: - Cloud Agility: services, platforms, tools, and REST APIs everywhere - Infrastructure as Code: Configuration Management - Test, Build, Deploy pattern: Continuous Integration and Delivery - Pets versus Cattle versus Bacteria: Immutable Infrastructure, Microservices, and Containers - Infrastructure models and orchestration - Epilogue: BusinessOps
