Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) Podcast, Episode 90: Gene Kim and DOES’18 Speakers

This morning on our Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) podcast, we had a great discussion with a panel of DevOps Enterprise Summit Las Vegas 2018speakers and programming committee members to discuss a major theme top of mind for many at the fifth annual USA conference.

This year, “Next Generation Ops and Infrastructure Practices” gets moved under a larger magnifying glass. Targeted specifically at Ops leadership, and the beginning stages of a greater focus on a multi-year road map to properly define the problem space, we continued the discussion from DOES18 London here with some of the top minds in DevOps.

The goal? We want to help Ops leaders work towards the same goal that their Development partners are also working towards. This diuscussion should resonate strongly with nearly everyone in Ops leadership, and help them not just participate in the DevOps journey, but be active leaders in it, as well. As we move Ops towards Dev, we can aim to solve these problems which are commonly the hindrances for a DevOps transformation going the “entire way” for an enterprise.

During the podcast, we discussed:

  1. The principles people are using to frame new operations practices.
  2. Deep dive into functional languages and programming and SRE.
  3. Treating your pipeline as a product (as code).
