Presentation: TweetUsing PaaS to Iterate on DevOps
Enhancing the ability of our organisation to deliver value is at the core of Devops, however it's counter-productive to delay delivering a service while we build our shiny new platform. This talk will look at delivering value from the outset using PaaS technologies whilst maintaining the freedom to iterate on your platform in the future. We will explore the journey from public, to private, to customised and hybrid PaaS - delivering your own PaaS, when you need it - and how to maintain your sanity while you're doing it. We will also look at the patterns emerging for developing applications for PaaS, from polyglot data to Continuous Delivery.
