DevOpsing your Greenfield: Cultivating New Growth
Your project sponsor presents a golden opportunity with a brand-new project. He says: "I want to do some DevOps on our new Agile project!" Sigh. Your response: "How about - let's BE Agile and adopt a DevOps approach to structuring our teams, designing our architecture, and leveraging automation to rapidly deliver value to our customers." There - we've set the mood. Greenfield projects provide a unique opportunity for us as DevOps professionals without the baggage of legacy projects. The problem: where you do you actually start? Unlike legacy projects, new projects don't have a set of pre-existing challenges that can be prioritized and attacked. We have to "just do everything." In this talk, Rich will provide his strategy for putting a solid DevOps solution in place. He describes how to set up well-integrated teams, establish a DevOps platform, organically grow an initial DevOps pipeline with continuous integration and continuous delivery, and integrate automated testing into every phase. This will give you a pragmatic formula to inject DevOps into your new projects or assess your current projects.
