Dominating DevOps with Distributed Teams

Add to calendar

Distributed teams are the norm in Fortune 100 and 500 companies, crossing many time zones and multiple cultures. These teams seldom communicate directly, instead using a point of contact to relay information. While teams don't need to be collocated to deliver significant business value, they must use their DevOps pipeline to their advantage. Through continuous integration and automated testing, stories can be swarmed by distributed teams and completed in a fraction of the time it typically takes. Treasa Overton will discuss how this distributed model allows for faster delivery of business value, which can lead to a greater market share. Learn how distributed teams with dependencies on infrastructure or middleware can integrate continuously, build quality into code, and make feedback and corrections faster, whether for acceptance testing or delivery to customers.
