DevOps Talk: Why Won’t Anyone Use Our Pipeline??

When the goals of the mission, developer need for feedback, and the ease-of-use of the toolchain don’t align, bad things—like missing critical mission-driven project timelines and budgets, team dysfunction, and security vulnerabilities—can happen.

 Learn:

  • Why bad feedback loops keep developers from using your toolchain

  • How some tools and platforms actually prevent the reinforcing loops, collaboration, and autonomy that speed time to development

  • How to give developers the ‘easy button’ for project management, software development, and continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) and security

Join this session to see what you can do to ensure development teams get the real-time feedback they need to bypass roadblocks while driving the positive outcomes the organization needs.

DevOps Talk: Blueprint for a Modern Application Development and Runtime Environment

New open source technologies make it easier and faster than ever to design and deliver modern cloud native applications. These technologies are: 

  • A universal polyglot virtual machine and Ahead-Of-Time compiler for running cloud native microservices with great performance
  • An integrated hybrid and multi-cloud native stack designed for enterprise scale
  • Autonomous computing infrastructure that significantly reduces complexity and human error, leading to greater security and reliability at a lower cost

Combined, these technologies are the blueprint for a next-generation application development and runtime environment.

Afternoon Breakout Sessions

Collaboration Session 1: Examining Major DevOps Challenges in Complex Systems

What are the major challenges in Devops in complex system of systems? Are we aware of best practices being implemented? How can we reconcile DevOps practices across disparate toolchains? How can we apply DevOps to integrate and test systems from multiple contractors, vendors and government offices?

Collaboration Session 2: DevOps in Mixed Classification Environments

How do we develop unclassified (or classified), and push up to classified environments in an automated fashion? How do we ensure that we are addressing security concerns in the crossing of domains? How do we keep development tools (especially the dependency management) consistent across all classification levels? What policy and technical barriers do we face (e.g., cross domain solutions (CDS))? How can we ensure that source code is appropriately classified?

Collaboration Session 3: DevOps Success Stories

This session will explore lessons learned and success stories regarding overcoming barriers such as: lack of understanding of DevOps, lack of appropriate personnel to properly implement DevOps, lack of government environment conducive to performing DevOps in labs, lack of support for Agile processes, overestimating system and organizational DevOps maturity, people familiar with legacy processes who don’t feel confident and empowered to make changes.

Collaboration Session 4: Architecting for DevOps

How do we adopt continuous architecture / continuous engineering principles including: architecting for build, test, and deploy, designing for change (aka evolutionary architecture), agreeing on the definition and intent of continuous architecture and the upkeep of evolutionary architecture​ and understanding how architectural decisions impact DevOps pipelines.
