Making DevOps Evolution Happen

Add to calendar

Organizations of all types and sizes are adopting DevOps ways of working, and they’re seeing the benefits of delivering better value outcomes faster and more safely to their customers. Helen Beal will share her perspectives on where to get started with DevOps, how to maintain momentum, the steps a typical DevOps evolution takes, and the kind of things that stymie progress and frustrate vision. Using real-world examples from her own experiences, Helen will share success patterns and tactics for surfacing best practices, as well as highlight common challenges and how to overcome them. She will look at culture and climate and show how to use psychology and neuroscience to drive behavioral change. You’ll learn techniques to optimize the value stream, from idea to realization, and discover how a DevOps toolchain overlays, accelerates, and supports end-to-end flow.

Helen Beal helps people practice DevOps principles in real-world organizations for Ranger4. She describes herself as a “DevOpsologist,” as her main role in her working life is to study the inputs and outputs of the thinking systems that make up DevOps and what value outcomes they deliver that we can measure. Helen is also a product owner and member of the Board of Regents at the DevOps Institute and a DevOps editor for InfoQ. Outside of DevOps, she is an ecologist and novelist. She once saw a flamingo lay an egg and has a particular fondness for llamas.
