2:38:43 Making DevOps Work

Data Center infrastructure design is rarely a purely technical challenge. In many cases you have to work with your end-customers (application developers), help them understand the technology limitations, and adapt your ideas to their needs. Your challenges will be even more interesting when you encounter a culture clash, for example between traditional operations and DevOps-focused developers.

In her May 2018 presentation, Michele Chubirka briefly explained the concepts behind familiar buzzwords like Waterfall, Agile and DevOps, and then described how you could run secure and reliable infrastructure in DevOps environment.
