What is the most difficult area of technology to improve in terms of software engineering? Network? Security? Database? Something else?
Chris Swan
documentation, samples and examples - even though they're the things that differentiate winner products and services
Guille Martínez
Security... due to mentality and technology awareness
David Jungwirth
to align all of those with the actual business needs...
Guille Martínez
For sure not the implementation
Craig Cook
A culture of collaboration and learning
Johan Tegler
Different kinds of databases, like relational, graph, doc and search db. They are often needed in some kind of combination
Ann Marie Fred
Trying to add Continuous Delivery to a system involving a relational database.
Guille Martínez
What's your feeling with the reference to "DevOps Team"?
Ann Marie Fred
If it's "THE DevOps Team" they've probably rebranded an Ops team. If it's "A DevOps Team" it's probably a team that's embraced DevOps. One little article makes a difference!
Olivier Jacques
At first "ouch - anti pattern", and then: maybe not if it's an Enablement Team.
Chris Swan
that's an invitation to check out https://web.devopstopologies.com/ from @manuelpaisable and @matthewpskelton

The primary goal of any DevOps effort within an organisation is to improve the delivery of value for customers and the business, not in itself to reduce costs, increase automation, or drive everything from configuration management; this means that di...
Kendra Little
I've met quite a few whose job is to help inspire and jump start other teams who do work autonomously -- essentially act as internal consultants. That can work well.
botchagalupe
Typically the term is meant to mean another silo. However, some orgs use it positively .. as sort of sherpa's
Craig Cook
Are you the team that delivers things to production for others?
Josh Atwell - 60% Productivity
I covered that in my @ITRevDOES lightning talk last year. https://youtu.be/nvrgidV0nco. I think of the #DevOps team as the team supporting the operational components for Devs to work quickly and working with SREs to make it stable and safe.

Guille Martínez
Would you say DevOps is more about automation or customer satisfaction?
Chris Swan
not a choice - it's about achieving customer satisfaction by making use of automation
botchagalupe
. @guillertal I think Mark Swartz's book The Art of Business Value is my best answer to this question.
Olivier Jacques
I won't be paid if it was about automation.
Ann Marie Fred
Do you want the idealistic answer or the real answer? Usually people focus on automation. But it SHOULD be about happier customers.
Chris Swan
I often describe continuous delivery pipelines as the 'connective tissue' from user need to infrastructure, so the customer satisfaction doesn't happen without end-end engineering, and that's what DevOps practitioners do.
botchagalupe
The answer is always value...
Olivier Jacques
Automation is often what you have to do to increase customer satisfaction. One supports the other. Key is to connect the two. Value Stream Mapping, Wardley Maps help connect these dots.
David Jungwirth
Automating the status quo is simple. But please streamline the value stream starting with the customer first...
DevOps Enterprise Summit
What is your favorite (or least favorite) jargon in the IT space?
Chris Swan
'on premise' gets me every time
Kendra Little
"I have an ask" is my favorite joke, because so many hate it
botchagalupe
Situational Awareness and Root Cause
Craig Cook
That's the way we have always done it.
Olivier Jacques
Everything with a number in the middle. i18n, K8s, a16z, ...
Guille Martínez
least favorite: BizDevSecOps
botchagalupe
@adrianco called it "Organizational Scar Tissue"
Craig Cook
(least favorite) Find the Root Cause and never let it happen again. Does not create a learning culture.
David Jungwirth
reducing DevOps to a toolchain-architecture is my least favorite jargon speak... ;)

If DevOps was a song, what would it be and why?
Kendra Little
oops i did it again
Chris Swan
something with flow and feedback
Guille Martínez
Mozart's Symphony No. 40. All instruments well-coordinated .

What is something you learned about DevOps transformations through experience which you found very surprising or unexpected?

For me it was that you can have amazing success without complete automation. Seems obvious now.
Guille Martínez
Run transformations in a DevOps manner. It means continuously, creating value every week. Baby steps work better than Big Bang in this scenario. Also measuring helps a lot.
Craig Cook
Organizational structure is critical to success. The spotify squad model is a good starting point. Also putting developers on call for their own services.
Ann Marie Fred
It's been interesting to see how different organizational cultures get represented in their DevOps practices. Command and control vs. cat-herding for example.
botchagalupe
. @Kendra_Little I find that having honest low tech conversations with the people who do the work is the best way to discover.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0Xkv3tBzms

Olivier Jacques
Frequency drives everything. Releasing every week or day or on demand makes some practices totally un-affordable (like manual testing)
David Jungwirth
If your Business, IT and Development all run into the same direction, with the same speed, you are all set. Otherwise - You need DevOps!
Chris Swan
@ojacques2 because 1.01^365 looks very different to 1.01^12 (for a 1% improvement per release)
Josh Atwell - 60% Productivity
I found it surprising how unaware most people were of how little empathy they applied in their work prior to #DevOps adoption.
