Session: When the Fur Flies: Dev and Ops Collaboration at the Worst of Times

Wednesday, 13:00 - 13:50
Track: Excellence

This talk addresses the need for developers to understand and collaborate with operations, as well as the consequences when collaboration does not happen. It's an argument for DevOps, by examining a pair of case studies: one where this collaboration happened, and one where it did not.

Michael wrote "Release It!"---about building large scale systems to survive the real world, rather than just passing QA---and has contributed to several other books. These days, he is devoted to improving the odds that a client's system will make money for them, by understanding time, uncertainty, risk, ignorance, and architecture.
