DevOps Transformation At Scale – A View Of Cultural Change

 

As agile methodologies evolve and cloud compute, container and server-less deployment models become more commonplace a traditional operation model can no longer keep pace. So what do we replace it with?
By looking at the whole software delivery lifecycle we can get an insight into the shape of the teams and engineers of tomorrow and how we need to steer our teams and engineers to provide a capability which can respond to the rapid changes happening in the world and are required by our businesses. This presentation will talk about why DevOps is important to achieve the speed you need and why T-shaped people and teams help you scale DevOps.

Formerly, Director of Technology at PaddyPowerBetfair, Stephen has over
15 years’ experience of leading technical teams and driving continuous improvement, achieved by making innovations in working practices and utilising his “common sense” approach to solving business problems. This excellent track record is driven by Stephen’s belief in quality at speed. He achieves this by maximising the potential of his whole team, and providing a collaborative engaging environment to work in. Away from the office Stephen can often be found tinkering with the latest gadgets – and he can just about still remember how to write some code.
