PIPELINE Conference 2018 — learning Continuous Delivery

Last month I went to PIPELINE Conference, the annual not-for-profit one day conference focussed on Continuous Delivery.

It was the 5th conference in the same number of years and being the anniversary edition, it was even better than the past two previous years that I went to.

Keynote speaker Elisabeth Hendrickson started the event with a lot of laughter and food for thought. See below a short summary of the talks I managed to catch:

Open Forum and Talks: “Digital in manufacturing and making — what’s coming next?”

Today I went to see “Digital in manufacturing and making — what’s coming next?” open forum which kicked off Leeds Digital Festival - a two week long multi-venue city-wide celebration of all things digital.

Despite it being Monday morning, the open forum did not let the attendees to snooze — the topics for the day ranged from the IIoT/4IR industrial automation, bridging the digital skills gap, industry collaboration opportunities to insights from large-scale software delivery — there was something to suit all the attendees despite the wide variety of backgrounds.

We were fortunate to be able to try our hand at coding: Claire Garside of Foundation for Digital Creativity brought over a few Raspberry Pi computers, already assembled and wired up to digital sensors to show the available capabilities and let the attendees have a go.

Getting Started with DevOps - learning resources

I’ve been helping organisations to adopt and evolve DevOps for many years, so I am pleased to be able to share my experience through monthly live video training with O’Reilly Media: Getting Started with DevOps in 90 mins - for execs and leaders.

Here are the links to recommended reading for the course; I thought it would be useful to share these for anyone who is getting started with DevOps (whether or not you join the online training).
