Agile, Testing & DevOps Showcase

Agile, Testing and DevOps: Are they a Separate conversation or a progression of capability?

DevOps, Testing and Agile have shared environments that facilitate working together. Spurred by greater demand for excellence, these three methods are more than simply adopting new tools and processes. The synergy involves building an evolving and a stable Continuous Integration (CI) Infrastructure, as well as an automated pipeline that moves deliverables from development to production to meet users’ expectations. They can work together, and the entire build process should be transparent, and it should enable and support development and operations. This transformation depends on: significant changes in culture; roles and responsibilities; team structure; tools and processes.

Among the topic addressed are:

  • Agile frameworks provide guidance for efficient operational software
  • Adopt a “build-and-run” teams concept
  • Automation and SAFe
  • Agile and DevOps – moving with flow-based awareness
  • Testing: “Measure twice, cut once”
  • Continuous Testing – running tests at each stage of s/w delivery pipeline.
  • Improve DevOps with SAFe
  • Automating for improved flow
  • The agile release train and continuous integration
  • Scrum board Gamification
  • Modern Software Testing
  • Sustainable Test Automation
  • Mob Programming
  • Team leadership
  • Individuals and interactions over process and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan…… have been achieved and helped establishing a faster and practical way of getting things done.

DevOps Summit

21 March 2019, London

DevOps now is a very established process, but the old architecture is no longer able to support the speed of delivery and so needs the additional help of Microservices and Docker for incremental change. But adopting a new capability requires a plan that includes people, process and technology.

This day will engage not just existing DevOps pros, but also managers and executives like CIOs, CISOs, Dev & Ops managers, business leaders and architects who need to know what changes are needed in enterprise architecture. Also, companies going through Mergers and Acquisitions will need to find out about initiatives that will increase efficiency and agility within the enterprise.

The Round Table session is the last of the joint morning session with the other two co-located events. This session is for 45 minutes of which there will be around ten minutes for a general summing up at the end. The speaker at each table will have a set theme and delegates join any table that they are interested in. They are given all the topics with their joining instructions and again at the time of registration and so make their choice on the topics that they want to attend. This is a discussion group and so no presentation slides are necessary. Please submit a topic if you would like to chair a discussion on a topic related to Agile and DevOps.

Topics to be covered:

  • Changing culture to continuously deliver
  • Agility and speed of automation
  • Change with Containers / Dockers
  • Cloud and DevOps
  • Hybrid Clouds and Culture Clash
  • Test Automation
  • ChatOps & DevSecOps
  • Microservices Architecture - Core Concepts
  • Primary benefits, and drawbacks of the Microservices architecture style
  • Techniques for transforming to a Microservices architecture

Benefits of Attending:

This one day programme is designed to connect these extensive aspects as well as the challenges. Expert practitioners and thought leaders will provide information on the implementation and help you to deepen your understanding and develop your business case and build towards getting significant return on investment.
