  • DevOps Implementation Boot Camp
    12/14/2016 - 12/16/2016
    San Diego Training And Conference Center ,CA

    For decades there have been big disconnects between the different roles of the IT shop. We struggle with inherent barriers between development projects and the stable infrastructure needed to deploy and run products. Applications get completed and tested in insulated internal environments without adequate collaboration between production IT staff and infrastructure administrators. Unforeseen challenges plague the production environment, wreaking havoc with deadlines, deliverables, and ultimately the business mission. Security is often a wet blanket at best, and an afterthought at worst. In the meantime, huge backlogs of work and technical debt pile up, chronically eroding the efficiency and agility of the business' IT capability.

    The grassroots DevOps movement has been a force for change in the face of these challenges. Although there's no simple definition for DevOps, over the past few years the "DevOps recipe" has become clear. It's time to put that recipe to work in your own teams.
