DevOps and Agile Thinking


In this talk, Microsoft Technical Evangelist Amanda Lange will talk about lessons learned from years of doing Agile in small software and mobile projects. The challenge of DevOps is moving from a small-scale Agile environment to scaling out for the full Enterprise. We’ll talk less about tools and more about people and developing a culture of adopting those tools: skilling up, learning styles, gamification, and ways to build a team culture that don’t rely on gimmicks but allow for practicing new methodologies. We’ll look at how to evolve into DevOps to develop a culture of experimentation that can improve the software creation process.
