Computing DevOps Live 2020


DevOps is all about change. It’s about altering perceptions of who should do what; it’s about doing away with manual tasks through automation; it’s about incorporating the latest ideas and paradigms so that software can be delivered with speed, efficiency and security.

But no one ever said that change would be easy, and indeed it’s not. Once the initial enthusiasm generated by evangelists and early adopters has died down, what then? Is there enough momentum to keep DevOps moving forward or will the organisation slip back into its comfort zone? Have initial results lived up to expectations? Have agile practices spread beyond the IT department and into those other parts of the business that need to be equally fleet of foot? Has the original vision survived contact with the real world?

Make no mistake, organisations that are serious about DevOps must be in it for the long haul. Unlike software updates, changes to business processes and structures are not easily rolled back. There will inevitably be resistance along the way. Not everyone likes change and some feel profoundly threatened by it. These issues must be handled with sensitivity and skill if ultimately the benefits of DevOps are to be realised.

Every organisation is unique and there is no book of rules. The best way to the get to the next stage of the journey is to learn from those who have already been there. Join us at Computing’s sixth DevOps Live event to hear about how others have moved forward, the challenges they faced, the mistakes they made, and how they put things right. Through expert keynotes, end-user case studies, and moderated panel discussions the event will cover the key issues surrounding the transition to DevOps, pushing through Agile, and bringing people with you as you do.

User-Centred Cloud

'User-centered cloud' - orienting cloud hosting services towards the user: software developers. Rather than many organisation's strategies which can become very abstract, technology-focused or commercially focused and use concepts like "multi-cloud" and "hybrid-cloud" which are reasonably meaningless to users. Organisations should focus on creating the best possible experience for software developers, whilst retaining efficiency through consistency and standardisation. A user-centred strategy would have a knock-on effect on approaches to legacy technology, cloud migration and tool selection.

Case Study: Keep calm and secure your CI/CD pipeline

Shifting left significantly reduces costs and diminishes release delays. By adding continuous security validation at each step from development through production you can progress with your security team from approving each release to approving the CI/CD process and having the ability to monitor and audit the process at any time.

In this session Sonya Moisset will focus on Pride in London (a project using Gatsby2, Contentful and Netlify) and show you how to create a secure CI/CD pipeline. She will explain how GitHub Marketplace helped the team with automating and improving their workflow. She will also outline what OWASP is and how to improve the workflow for your own open source projects using GitHub Marketplace applications.

Sonya Moisset, Tech Lead/DevSecOps & Lead Security Engineer, Pride in London & Photobox Group
