DevOps Exchange Bournemouth #2

13/02/2019   DevOps Exchange Events  

DevOps Exchange Bournemouth - February 

For our first event of 2019, we teamed up with local legends Redweb who kindly agreed to host out of their Holdenhurst home. Following our inaugural meetup in December, we lined up 3 great talks to kick things off again in the new year!

To kick things off we had Redweb's own Leigh Darlow who discussed QA in DevOps and how his role has adapted to meet the adoption needs. Mike from Capgemini then gave us an insight into Digital Transformation and DevOps and how companies like Capgemini are tackling the challenge. Finally, we had Richard from 3 Sided Cube discussing DevOps at scale, taking us through their continual journey into DevOps.

Recordings of all of the talks are below and keep your eyes pealed for details of our next event coming soon!

Talk 1 - QA in DevOps; test strategy and how the role has had to adapt - Leigh Darlow @ Redweb

Delivering software continuously and rapidly comes with quality challenges. This is a brief look at the QA role within DevOps, and how culture, principles, and processes can help to give confidence in what is delivered.
