Experiences Bringing Continuous Delivery to the DoD and DHS

Add to calendar

Not every continuous delivery initiative starts with someone saying, "Drop everything. Let's do DevOps." Sometimes you have to grow your practice incrementally. Sometimes, you don’t set out to grow a practice at all—you are just fixing problems with your process, trying to make things better. Join Gene Gotimer as he walks through two case studies, one from the Department of Defense and one from the Department of Homeland Security, that took different avenues to get to agile and DevOps. Learn about the journey each organization took, the tools used to build quality into the products, releases, and release processes, and the challenges that had to be overcome during the adoption process. Take home valuable tips and techniques for overcoming cultural, regulatory, and environmental challenges when trying to adopt agile and continuous delivery practices. If you're struggling to adopt agile or DevOps and worry that it can't work in your particular environment due to the enterprise, the culture, or regulations, this talk is for you.
