Presentation: TweetFive Years of DevOps: Where are we Now?
It has been five years since Patrick Debois coined the term DevOps to describe a way of working together to deliver systems. In that time, we have rediscovered some gems from the past and we have invented new techniques and tools. In this session, we will take a look at what's new in the world of DevOps, what's old-but-good, and where we still need to advance.
Workshop: Systems Thinking and Complexity Tweet
In this full-day workshop, you will learn how to analyze and influence any system. (There's no such thing as "control"!) We will take a sociotechnical view of systems that draws on lean thinking, cybernetics, complex adaptive systems, and human factors. Using these perspectives, we will look at how systems work, how you can optimize them, and the many ways they can fail.
During this workshop, you will be asked to stretch your thinking into one or more new paradigms to understand how the same dynamics can sometimes create inertia and other times create radically nonlinear change.
