Introduction to DevOps with Chocolate and LEGOs
Organizations today can no longer afford to deliver new features to their respective markets once a year or even once a quarter. In the attempt to catch up with the competition, they jump onto DevOps journey starting with the "How" and losing the sight of "Why" and "What". Join this gamified simulation tutorial to gain a solid understanding of foundational principles of the DevOps culture. Experience the benefits of DevOps transformation even before initiating one in your enterprise! This tutorial is ideally designed for organizations that are evaluating their approach to DevOps transformation, making their first steps in adopting DevOps practices, or noticing the gaps left by “automation only” approach to DevOps. This tutorial is based on real-life examples from medium to large size organizations, includes the latest findings from the State of DevOps report, delivers key ideas from “The Phoenix Project” by Gene Kim, and facilitates a number of debriefings to draw parallels between the issues highlighted in the simulation and some of the similar issues the learners may have in their organisations (impact on business, segregation of duty, change management, Job security and even fear-based culture). Through this powerful role-based simulation with LEGO and Chocolate, participants experience the benefits of cross-training, learn to eliminate silos, adopt systems thinking and gain valuable insights that can be immediately applied in their organisations.
