Session: When the Fur Flies: Dev and Ops Collaboration at the Worst of Times
Wednesday, 13:00 - 13:50
This talk addresses the need for developers to understand and collaborate with operations, as well as the consequences when collaboration does not happen. It's an argument for DevOps, by examining a pair of case studies: one where this collaboration happened, and one where it did not.
Michael's desire to teach what he knows shows in daily work, speaking engagements, and writing. Michael wrote "Release It!"---about building large scale systems to survive the real world, rather than just passing QA---and has contributed to several other books. These days, he is devoted to improving the odds that a client's system will make money for them, by understanding time, uncertainty, risk, ignorance, and architecture.
