You Build It, You Own It!

Add to calendar

The days of writing software and throwing it over the proverbial wall to operations and production support teams are over. It’s time we, as software development teams, become more accountable and take pride and ownership in what we do. The results will be better transparency, more autonomy, and reduced risk (among other things). Join Sean and Suresh as they walk through how Capital One tackled one particular project by leveraging DevOps and forming their "you build it, you own it" principles. You'll gain a better understanding of how to improve quality within your agile teams and how to deliver resilient software with things like automation testing, push-button deployments, and critical monitoring and alerting, all while keeping agile concepts at the forefront of what you do.
