Curious about DevOps? You've got the right attitude!

English session - Beginner

Most talks about DevOps focus on a specific technology stack or recipes that worked in a specific organization. But what these talks don't tell us is actually the most important one: the story of the journey. What challenges did they face and how (and why!) did they solve them? Each DevOps journey is different, but they share some common traits.
In this talk we'll reveal a the secret ingredient and a recipe for a successful DevOps journey.

Produce the key DevOps metrics that management understands

English session - Intermediate

Organizations are interested in DevOps because it is tied to extraordinary business results. Developers and Operations adopt DevOps because.. well.. it's just fun, really. The problem is that DevOps is a journey which takes time and money. It might be hard to sustain the kind of investment required when the reasons are so hard to articulate.
This talk will explain the key metrics that management will understand and how to produce them.
