DevOps Days

It’s the 5th Anniversary of DevOps

0

Damon Edwards / 

I’ve been proud to have played a part in the rise of the global phenomenon known as DevOps Days. If you aren’t aware of the history of the DevOps movement, it traces it’s roots (and name) directly back to the first DevOps Days event, organized by Patrick Debois, in Ghent Belgium.

For it’s 5th anniversary, DevOps Days is returning to Ghent. John Willis recorded these short interviews with some of the original attendees to commemorate the upcoming milestone event.

How to initiate a DevOps Transformation (Video)

5

Damon Edwards / 

Here is the full 30-minute video from the keynote I did at DevOps Days Mountain View 2013.

This talk address the single most common question I get asked:

“DevOps sounds great… but how do I go about introducing DevOps to my company?”

Which is usually followed by one or more of the following frustrated statements:

“My managers don’t get it”
“The Dev group won’t talk to me”
“The Ops group won’t talk to me”
“QA says I’m dangerous”
“I don’t know where to start”
“People say they are too busy getting real work done”
“Help! My boss told me to buy DevOps by next quarter or else”
“Everyone just argues about tools”

In this talk I give a condensed walk through of a 3 step process that we’ve found to work (who doesn’t love a 3 step process, right?):

1. Build the “why?” (the business case)
2. Build organizational alignment (the trickiest part… but there is another 5 step “workshop” process just for this!)
3. Continuous improvement loops (think: PDCA or Deming/Shewhart Cycles)

The process incorporates everything you would expect from a DevOps transformation (Lean and Systems Thinking, Value Stream Mapping, Waste Analysis, The 3 Ways, Silo busting, etc.) but it does so in a practical and approachable manner. You can even avoid using the word “DevOps” if it’s too politically charged in your organization.

This forms the core of what we do at DTO Solutions does with our DevOps Workshops (or “Service Delivery Workshops” for a non DevOps name). Through that work we’ve been fortunate enough to see this process in action at many different sizes and types of companies. But that being said, I’m always interested in more feedback and new ideas!

Using Rundeck and Chef to Build DevOps Toolchains at #ChefConf 2012

Anthony Shortland / 

I presented at #ChefConf 2012 in Burlingame last Thursday on using Rundeck and Chef to Build DevOps toolchains.

The heart of the presentation was a demonstration of continuous build and deployment showing Adam Jacob’s chef-rundeck plugin working as a Rundeck resource model source (node provider) and jobs using knife and the Chef server API to manage databag-based application configuration.

Video: Marten Mickos and Rich Wolski talk DevOps and Private Clouds

0

Damon Edwards / 

I ran into Marten Mickos and Rich Wolski from Eucalyptus Systems at PuppetConf and got them to sit down for a quick video alongside my fellow dev2ops.org and DevOps Cafe contributor, John Willis.

I had just come out of Marten’s keynote where he spoke about DevOps far more than I would have expected. In this video we explore the deep connection between DevOps and Private Clouds as well as other industry changes for which they are planning.

Eucalyptus was one of the first private cloud technologies on the scene, and consequently got the benefit and burden of being the early mover. The community had some ups and downs along the way, but their product and industry vision seems encouraging and warrants a closer look (and never count out Marten Mickos in an open source software battle).
