Sustainable Digital Delivery - What Works?

Insights from industry experts

Hosted by Conflux | part of Leeds Digital Festival 2019 #LeedsDigi19

Most organisations have realised that a “fire and forget” attitude to digital delivery is not effective. But what techniques and approaches contribute to sustainable digital delivery? What software development and operations practices actually work?

Join us for this 2-hour session to hear first-hand stories of digital delivery success from industry experts based in Leeds. We’ll cover topics like API-first, software operability, MVP, and digital skills development with short talks from speakers followed by round-table discussions directly with experts.

Practical Operability Techniques - SkillsMatter

In this talk, we explore five practical, tried-and-tested, real world techniques for improving operability with many kinds of software systems, including cloud, Serverless, on-premise, and IoT.

  • Logging as a live diagnostics vector with sparse Event IDs

  • Operational checklists and ‘Run Book dialogue sheets’ as a discovery mechanism for teams

  • Deployment Verification Tests as a way to assess runtime dependencies and readiness for service

  • Correlation IDs beyond simple HTTP calls

  • Lightweight ‘User Personas’ as drivers for operational dashboards

Based on work in many industry sectors, we will learn how to improve the operability of software systems using these team-friendly techniques.
