Collaboration Session 2: DevSecOps Automation and Software Factories

DevOps Automation inherently leads to a series of questions. What are the limits on automation of DevSecOps pipelines? How do we begin to standardize practices, including tooling, accreditation, and deployment environments, across the federal government? How do we effectively close the feedback loop given classification or other sensitive deployment environments? How do we test effectively when we suffer from consistently inadequate test data and poor development/production environment parity? If we want to avoid constructing custom DevSecOps pipelines for each product architecture we want to build, what are the constraints to consider when building a DevSecOps CI/CD pipeline for maximum reuse? Discuss these questions and more during Collaboration Session 2.
