Time has come for our second DevOps meetup! So let’s see what we have in store today.
DevOps can be summarised into 4 key point, known as CAMS:
People over technology. If you don’t have culture, all automation attempts will be fruitless.
This is one of the places you start once you understand your culture, by stitching together an automation fabric that reflects your shared culture and understanding.
If you can’t measure, you can’t improve. Teams doing devops successfully will measure everything as often as they can… performance metrics, process metrics, and even people metrics.
Sharing is the loopback in the CAMS cycle. Creating a culture where people share ideas and problems is critical. The other people in your team aren’t the enemy – the problem you’re trying to solve is.
This time we will cover these interesting topics:
- Automating Complex Geo Mapping Platform with Ansible
- Scaling WordPress with Amazon Cloud
- Orchestrating Docker Containers
In our first meetup we covered general topics. You will notice that the subjects are more narrow this time and that scaling and automation tools are in focus today.
After that we will start the second part of the meetup – which is an open-ended networking event on our terrace with a beautiful view on Belgrade.
I would like to use this opportunity to thank Igor Jović (White City Soft), Vukašin Vukoje and Miljenko Rebernišak (Devana Technologies) who will form this batch of meetup speakers.
In order to embrace DevOps principles you need to tie operations to revenue, and you make system availability the problem of the entire company. This is why it’s a misconception that what people tend to call a “DevOps engineer” is coming from the development side of the house to wipe out operations – in fact “DevOps engineers” usually come from system admin or tech operations departments.
