X Topic Abstract

Out of all the process and technological transformations that the industry has gone through, "Devops Transformation" has been extremely unique. With greatly increased delivery speed, quality and reliability Devops has been the go to stop for many companies, yet it also has been the most misunderstood concept.

Every Devops transformation or implementation starts with following questions.

• When are we hiring a new Devops team?
• How are we planning to automate our delivery chain?
• Is it going to make Ops team redundant?
• Is Development team going to take responsibility of deployments as well?

Unfortunately, Devops is not all about automating your delivery chain nor it's about making your Ops team redundant.

Devops is about creating a culture of collaboration and knowledge sharing that can help with adding value and improving flow efficiency from business case to technology solution. It puts more emphasis on optimizing handoffs between different organizational silos, reducing knowledge waste, process waste, waiting waste at various levels, focusing on common vision and continuous improvement.

If the above goals are not achieved, it matters little how perfectly your delivery chain is automated. There is a need in the industry to understand the core concepts of Devops. This session is just not philosophy but provides relevant and real-time examples that audience can relate to on what exactly are different types of wastes in organization, what level of cultural change and of course finally automation that is required for organizations for successful Devops Transformation.

X Topic Abstract

Agile has never been about frameworks or locking your customers into one way of doing things. The Agnostic Agile Oath highlights this anti-pattern and reminds people that agility is about helping customers get to where they need to be. It puts the customer first, encourages respect and etiquette between agile practitioners and frameworks, and encourages kaizen within the agile community.

Yet, like it or not, Agile has now become a competitive industry. The focus is usually 'mine is better than yours' when it comes to frameworks, and they are seen as competing rather than complimentary. Additionally, the trend seems now to opine on a framework or organisational pattern that one has never used, experienced or even understood in the first place.

In this talk, Sam will introduce the Agnostic Agile Oath, how it came into existence and review its twelve agreements citing some real life examples.
