Presentation: "Using monitoring and metrics to learn in development"

Track: DevOps/continuous delivery / Time: Monday 10:35 - 11:35 / Location: KeynoteRoom

A lot of people associate devops with faster deployment and automation. 
This speeds up the process from idea , implementation and to production.
An equally important part is monitoring and metrics: this allows you to 
learn from your application while it is in production.
The field of monitoring is traditionally owned by the operations group.

In this session we will explore:
- the state of current metrics and monitoring solutions
- how they are evolving to opening up information to the whole company
- the benefits developers can get from this information
- and how they can improve the collection of metrics and monitoring.

After all, if your application is your baby, you do care if it start 
behaving strangely and grows old, right?

Patrick Debois, Bridging the gap between projects and operations

Patrick Debois

Biography: Patrick Debois

In order to understand current IT organizations, Patrick has taken a habit of changing both his consultancy role and the domain which he works in: sometimes as a developer, manager, sysadmin, tester and even as the customer.

During 15 years of consultancy, there is one thing that annoys him badly, it is the great divide between all these groups. But times are changing now: being a player on the market requires you to get these ‘battles’ under control between these silos.

He first presented concepts on Agile Infrastructure at Agile 2008 in Toronto, and in 2009 he organized the first devopsdays . Since then he has been promoting the notion of ‘devops’ to exchange ideas between these groups and show how they can help each other to achieve better results in business.
