Cultures of Learning and Experimentation: Stories of DevOps Success & “Failure”

Spring 2022

With literally thousands of technology practitioners around the world now engaged in the practice of DevOps – and DevSecOps and DevNetOps – and with hundreds of industry conferences held since 2009 where DevOps practices have been discussed and debated (including in some very substantial publishing efforts), it is safe to say we now have a very rich body of experience from which to draw as we work to move our discipline forward. This session seeks to plumb the various cultural and learning differentiators in particular that contribute to helping all of us build successful DevOps practices
