Workshop - Dev4Ops4Dev

So, you’re a developer finding yourself doing more and more operations?  Or maybe you’re in operations and finding yourself doing a lot more work that feels like development.  If that’s you, then this is the workshop you’re looking for!  Join us as we discuss various things that will help developers build and operate more operational applications and help operations engineers leverage best practices followed by developers.

We’ll cover lots of topics -- some will be developer-focused, some operations-focused, and some will be difficult to categorize as one or the other.  One thing is certain, all of these topics will help you and your team build more delightful applications!

Some topics that will likely be covered:

  • Version Control

  • Packaging

  • Test-driven development

  • User-management

  • Monitoring

  • Central Logging

  • Caching and CDNs

  • Working in the cloud

  • Local development

  • Data persistence

  • Introduction to Webservers and Load Balancers
