It seems everyone is talking about DevOps these days. Around six years after the term was first coined, practices; both technical and cultural, have evolved considerably. With this level of change, and considerable hype, it’s easy to lose sight of the fundamentals...

The underlying concepts behind DevOps have existed for many years in the computing industry, but only recently has their adoption moved from special-purpose computing into mainstream recognition that their application is a key factor in project success.

BJSS will open the event by delivering an overview of their definition of DevOps and then discussing how applying the principles helps deliver successful projects.
We are then pleased to welcome a Case study presentation from Stuart Taylor who is the Head of IO at Stuart will share his experiences of employing DevOps principles in the workplace @ LateRooms, and the challenges they face in doing so. Stuart will also delve deeper into the real meaning of DevOps and analyse whether we should believe the hype, exposing the lies and revealing the actual truth...
