Our Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) video podcast – now in its 4th year – has hosted hundreds of experts from the DevOps community who shared their experience and expertise around a wide range of topics related to DevOps and Continuous Delivery.
Among the panelists we had on the program are many of the speakers who appeared at DevOps Enterprise Summit (DOES) throughout the years. IT leaders from companies like Hearst Business Media, Nationwide Insurance, IBM, Capital One, Target, Pivotal, and more have joined us on various episodes, to discussed their DevOps transformation journeys, best practices and patterns, and the challenges they are facing along the way.
In this installment of “DevOps Tips and Inspiration” we’re rounding up some of the takeaways and leanings that these DOES-DevOps experts have shared with us through the years. Since it was hard to choose, and there were so many valuable tips from so many excellent DOES speakers, we’ll be adding to this list in the weeks to come.
