"Cultivating a DevOps Culture: Seamless Transformation & Maximum Velocity"

The key to a successful DevOps deployment is being able to measure operational and business value.

Learn from Wiley's foray into DevOps in an engineering-centric approach. Learn about the best practices for mapping IaC repositories to the CMDB and gain insights into automating change management while meeting high compliance policies.

Explore the tangible benefits Wiley has experienced, including the ability to capture the four key DORA metrics (deployment frequency, lead time, MTTR and change failed %) to significantly improve deployment throughput and software quality.

"New insights and surprises from DORA research"

The craft of software development is something that everyone can continuously improve, and in doing so, deliver more satisfied users, more successful organizations, and happier engineers. While each team has a unique path forward, there are universal themes and beneficial practices that can be observed across organizations. Discovering these is the mission of the DevOps Research and Assessment group.

This talk presents key findings, some unexpected surprises, and actionable recommendations that you can put into practice today, in order to deliver your product faster, more safely, and more contentedly

"Our Jenkins Journey: Lessons Learned"

We adopted Jenkins as our CI/CD system and as a general automation solution here at ActionIQ because of its maturity, and because it has a massive market share in the CI/CD ecosystem. With a large community, extensive plugin library, and a long-maintained core codebase, we thought Jenkins was a reasonable choice.

During this talk, I'd like to convince anyone thinking about adopting Jenkins to consider other paths. We will cover a handful of the sharp edges and thorns built into Jenkins, as well as some of the poor decisions we made while implementing Jenkins at ActionIQ. Hopefully we can save some other startups the pain we felt while developing our CI/CD system.

Tim Murphy Bio: As ActionIQ's Developer Experience tech lead, Tim strongly values the human beings in the software development process, and he aims to support them with quality tools, systems, processes, and education.

We look forward to seeing you on what looks to be a great night.

All the best,

The DOXNY team
