Does anyone have any favorite post-mortems that have been published? I've been watching some from Chef, led by @cwebber.
Jan-Joost Bouwman
if it is online I would love the link
Thomas A. Limoncelli
Google's 2010 AppEngine report was very good: http://www.zdnet.com...
Anders Wallgren
I want to hear the post mortem on this: http://www.detroitne...
Thomas A. Limoncelli
The gmail 2009 postmortem was very impressive too. One of the early classics: http://arstechnica.c...
Gene Kim
I also love the Transparent Uptime work done by @lennysan. Love that these post-mortems are public. @yesthattom h/t @ernestmueller
Anders Wallgren
@yesthattom It's incredibly useful to see those learnings out in the open.
Thomas A. Limoncelli
Sadly Apple didn't publish a PM about this outage but people reverse-engineered what happened. I wish I could read Apple's internal PM! http://blog.streamin...
Gene Kim
OH: @yesthattom: "This is a great post-mortem that Apple customers wrote" http://blog.streamin...

Thanks for joining us today!
What would you say are some indicators that an organization is ready to take on a DevOps project?
Steve Brodie
Businesses may be compelled to pursue DevOps if they need to improve SW Delivery outcomes
Michael Valentin
hey folks... I'd say when they're finally tired of feeling the pain of NOT engaging in DevOps
Steve Brodie
Needs for faster cycle times, improved quality, better cost efficiency
Joshua Corman
.@DOESsummit heh... ALL orgs (*) are ready to (at least) get started... building empathy muscles and making "a thing" more efficient
Carmen DeArdo
@stbrodie Agree with Steve. It's hard to think of an organization that shouldn't be interested in DevOps but then again, I am biased :-)
Steve Brodie
That said, there needs to be a willingness to address the organizational and cultural pre-requisites
Electric Cloud
@stbrodie a need for automation!
Anders Wallgren
If you are getting sick of 8 hour conference calls with forty people on them holding their breath hoping things will work...
Joshua Corman
.@DOESsummit perhaps start with something very manually and error prone, automate it, iterate to next thing.
Thomas A. McGonagle
An interest in improvement
Halie Noble
@joshcorman automate all the things in all the organizations!
Carmen DeArdo
If you have a lot of wait states and waste and don't have visibility across the value stream
Jan-Joost Bouwman
When they are ready to break down the wall
Michael Valentin
For our team, while we've had to cut the size of the staff, I've made the case that, more than ever, we need to automate, engage in CI/CD to ensure we can continue to enjoy quality and feature delivery with a smaller team.
Sam Fell
That's it. That, and an organizational will to do something about it.
Carmen DeArdo
many teams start out with agile development but then realize that you have to go broader than that. To drive more improvement across the entire value chain.
Michael Valentin
Yes Carmen. That's the next logical step after they've embraced agile methods
Joshua Corman
.@DOESsummit 1 of my favs is intro Deming's Supply Chain Principles... [cont]
Joshua Corman
.@DOESsummit [cont] 1) Fewer Suppliers 2) Best Supplies from 'em 3) Track which parts went where ==> Less Unplanned work, Break-Fix, Faster MTTR
Thomas A. Limoncelli
Other indicators include: your Ops team is unable to take vacations, outages are more likely during code pushes, and new feature are written but don't appear in production for months.
Anders Wallgren
@michaelvalentin Automation truly is a force-multiplier!
Jan-Joost Bouwman
@carmendeardo that's also how we got started. You can't get the full potential of Agile without including Ops in your team
Steve Brodie
Well said Michael
Michael Valentin
@anders_wallgren agreed. the hardest part is to breakdown the QA silo thinking and get them to enhance their skills so that they can engage in the automation engineering
Chris Lazzaro
.@DOESsummit Teams often learn DevOps the first time as they transition from building OnPrem SW to Cloud
Steve Brodie
@joshcorman Agree with Josh's suggestion to start small with a painful manual task and then iterate
Steve Brodie
Welcome everyone to the DOES15 crowd chat

Here we go! So excited to see what is about to unfold!
