  • Or to put it more bluntly…
  • We want to break down the silos… but don’t attack the silos directly… or you’ll get resistance
  • Before we go any further into DevOps it’s worth quickly looking at some of the influences that you might be familiar with…Agile Software DevelopmentLean Manufacturing (and Eric Ries Lean Startup movement)Demming and the Wheel – Plan Do Check ActToyota Production SystemGoldratt’s Theory of Constraints – drum, buffer, ropeThe main objectives of the TPS are to design out overburden (muri) and inconsistency (mura), and to eliminate waste (muda). The most significant effects on process value delivery are achieved by designing a process capable of delivering the required results smoothly; by designing out "mura" (inconsistency). It is also crucial to ensure that the process is as flexible as necessary without stress or "muri" (overburden) since this generates "muda" (waste). Finally the tactical improvements of waste reduction or the elimination of muda are very valuable.  (Wikipedia)Kaizen (We improve our business operations continuously, always driving for innovation and evolution.)

    12. Defining Devops I “The term “DevOps” typically refers to the emerging professional movement that advocates a collaborative working relationship between Development and IT Operations, resulting in the fast flow of planned work (i.e., high deploy rates), while simultaneously increasing the reliability, stability, resilience and security of the production environment.” – Gene Kim DevOpsGuys
    13. He goes on to say “…while simultaneously increasing the reliability, stability, resilience and security of the production environment.” – Gene Kim DevOpsGuys
    14. Defining Devops II “I’ll tell you EXACTLY what DevOps means. DevOps means giving a sh*t about your job enough to not pass the buck. DevOps means giving a sh*t about your job enough to want to learn all the parts and not just your little world. Developers need to understand infrastructure. Operations people need to understand code. People need to f**king work with each other and not just occupy space next to each other.” - John E. Vincent (@Lusis) DevOpsGuys
    15. Breaking down Silos DevOpsGuys
    16. Products not Projects "Delivery teams run software products - not projects – that run from inception to retirement“ – Jez Humble, (Thoughtworks) DevOpsGuys

    20. Don’t fight Stupid… DevOpsGuys
    21. Embrace Chaos! “One of the first systems our engineers built in AWS is called the Chaos Monkey. The Chaos Monkey’s job is to randomly kill instances and services within our architecture. If we aren’t constantly testing our ability to succeed despite failure, then it isn’t likely to work when it matters most – in the event of an unexpected outage.” DevOpsGuys
    22. DevOps Transformation • Don’t attack the Silos – “Make more awesome” • Use the CAMS framework & the 3 Ways as guiding principles • Start small & iterate • Standard change management practices… but remember culture, culture, culture! DevOpsGuys
