CoderCamp Hamilton is an almost monthly “platform agnostic” user group for local software developers to listen to some presentations and learn new things in a casual, friendly setting. It’s also a great place to practice your next conference talk. Interested in giving a CoderCamp presentation? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add you to the list of scheduled talks.
Damian Brady (@damovisa), a solution architect with Octopus Deploy will talk about Brownfield DevOps in Practice.
Are you ready to continuously deploy every commit to production and deploy 25 times a day? Can your operations team tear down and spin up VMs and containers for your app like theyâ€™re nothing? Can your company track production usage and toggle features at the whims of the marketing department? No?
We all know itâ€™s not quite that easy. You canâ€™t take an existing house-of-cards monolith and just start treating it like a unicorn, as much as everyone would like to. But as a developer, you can start to make practical inroads, and you can do it now.
This talk looks at DevOps culture from the point of view of a developer – how code changes can affect the agility of your organisation. Weâ€™ll discuss architectural changes, design techniques, deployment pipelines, and how to make large changes safely. Developers at any level will leave with some practical ways to support your companyâ€™s DevOps efforts and start working better with your ops team.
