A Server-Side Chat: 10 Years of DevOps and Beyond
Join CloudBees' Brian Dawson for a discussion with Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Launchable Inc. and creator of the pioneering Jenkins project. In January, it will be 10 years since the Jenkins project started on the road to becoming not only the most widely adopted CI/CD solution, but a project which helped pioneer pipeline as code, containers as a core aspect of the CD process and much more. Kohsuke and Brian will review some of the milestone developments in the Jenkins and DevOps community over the past 10 years, and discuss how that will inform the next 10 years of DevOps. Learn about the emergence of GitOps, data-driven DevOps, Software Delivery Automation and AI and how they will all impact your future.
Data-driven DevOps: The Key to Improving Speed & Scale
As the creator of Jenkins, I get to see lots of real-world software development, and teams and organizations trying to push better DevOps practice forward. In those conversations, I noticed that some are more successful than others. In this talk, I will explore where those differences seem to be made. One is around data. Our automation in software development is sufficiently broad that it is producing lots of data, but by and large most of those are simply thrown away. Yet at the same time, the management is feeling like they are flying blind because they have little insight! Another is around how they leverage “economy of scale.” Successful teams seem like they managed to drive great uniformity and consistency across software development, which allow organizations to move at great speed and make developers feel great.
