Policies, norms, and practices are an integral part of software development practices and undeniably important for delivering scalable and robust systems at high quality. Yet, they can simultaneously be a blocker to fast, iterative development processes which are vital to creating a culture of continuous innovation across the organization.
Even cloud developers who are striving to build bleeding-edge systems are often restricted in delivering value at their optimal personal speed. Handcuffs are being imposed on them by important, yet cumbersome cloud approval processes, as well as unnecessarily long wait times during deployment and testing stages within their cloud infrastructure.
In this talk we will shed some light on common inefficiencies and roadblocks that cloud developers face when developing against public clouds. We will discuss how to give back control and autonomy to developers over their own dev environments and tools with local and hybrid cloud development patterns, to foster innovation and fast feedback loops. Most importantly, we will highlight how the same concepts which give full autonomy to individual developers can also be leveraged to substantially improve team collaboration and feedback loops across team borders, for the best possible developer engagement across all stages of the CI/CD pipeline.
If you feel like you are not getting the full potential out of your cloud team, join me in this thought provoking session and let’s discuss strategies on how to free your development teams from their handcuffs - while embracing security, quality, and compliance.
