High performance devOPS

Despite the DevOps movement starting from the system administration perspective, it now seems to be development-centric. Many operations practitioners feel left behind, and find it difficult to work with their ‘enlightened’ colleagues. This workshop explores this relationship from a pragmatic perspective: identifying the kind of behaviour that contributes to high performance across the value stream. After a short introduction the participants will discuss the following questions:
What are the major issues in operations that are caused by poor collaboration between development and operations?
What kind of behaviour would operations like to see from development?
What kind of behaviour would development like to see from operations?
The results will be captured and written up in a blog so that the broader community can benefit from the ‘Polish Perspective’.
