Join us for our next Practical Agility where we’ll tell stories about DevOps of what’s helpful, what’s just hype, and what’s hysterical. Below is our lightning speakers and their lightning talk titles:

David Laribee – Not In My Dojo

For the past six months I’ve been part of a DevJam team coaching a major DevOps transformation effort. We’ve managed to change a fixation on CI/CD tooling to a more nuanced approach, a pragmatic blend of product discovery driven by validated learning supported by engineering skill. In this lightning talk, I’ll spill the beans on what works, what doesn’t and share some thoughts on the real value of the DevOps movement.

Jason Walker – Target’s DevOps “First Way”: Empathy in Our DevOps Level-Up

The “Three Ways” in Target’s DevOps (Empathy, Collaboration, and Experiential Learning) is a construct we’ve used to focus in on the culture of DevOps. This ignite dives into the Empathy perspective and meaning on IT delivery during out DevOps/Agile/LEAN transformation.
Ross Clanton – How not to do DevOps
