DevOps Exchange Bournemouth

06/02/2019   DevOps Exchange Events  

It's official, the first ever DevOps Exchange Bournemouth was a huge success.

For the first event, DOXMOUTH was kindly hosted by our good friends LinuxRecruit, at their new home in THIS Workspace in central Bournemouth. We had a great first line up, and were joined by around 60 fellow DevOps Enthusiasts.

This month we heard from Dan Potepa at Lush Digital who gave us a behind the scenes tour on the new ecommerce system being built from scratch.  Jorge from Siemens Mobility then give us an insight into Continuous Culture, the cultural shift that needs to change for DevOps to be successful and finally, we had an overview on DevSecOps from Mark Davison, who kindly stepped in at the 11th hour.
Recordings of all of the talks are below and we look forward to seeing you at our next event. 

Talk 1 - Painless Route to Production by Dan Potepa @ Lush Digital

A tech focused look behind the scenes of Lush's new multi channel e-commerce system, built from the ground up. Embracing new technology and methodologies. We'll look at making the journey from git push to production deployment as painless as possible with "Potepa's practically perfect production pipeline!"

He has experience in a variety of industries, from outdoor education and live music production to java development for a global retail enterprise. Keen to share experiences and educate wherever possible, to anyone who'll listen!

Talk 2 - Continuous Culture Jorge Cruz Lambert @ Siemens Mobility

DevOps is usually implemented following tools trends, causing friction between departments. For DevOps to be successful the change comes with a culture shift.

He is currently working in Siemens Mobility as a Lead Software Architect enjoying Poole and its great summers. His hobby is Scuba diving so he is always looking to spend some holidays in a boat diving for a week.

Talk 3 - DevSecOps an Introduction by Mark Davison @ Ronin IT Consulting
