[DPC18] A LAMP Stack Professional’s Journey to Artificial Intelligence: Meet Johnny the Deployer!

[DPC18] A LAMP Stack Professional’s Journey to Artificial Intelligence: Meet Johnny the Deployer!

Artificial intelligence products are all the rage these days. AI is not scary, and there are a lot of awesome things you can do with it right from PHP. How do we, as LAMP stack professionals, ensure we embark this wonderful journey? I’ll show you how we built, with PHP, a devops chatbot that enables the release manager skip the confusing discussions with the tekkies and master the release process. It’s not just a simple bot, because we added from day 1 natural language processing smartness to it, so that our user base is extended to the project managers, business analysts, and customer engagement teammates. Johnny started as a devops friend for one of our customers, being extremely helpful in our day-to-day tasks. It later evolved to a tech lead/scrum master role, and even reminds us to do our timesheets. Here are some discussions you might have with Johnny: “What tickets are ready for QA?” “What version of the API is installed in production?” “Are there unused branches for the website?” "Has test coverage decrease in the last week for the API?" "What is the development team on the ETL project?" "Add Mary as a developer to the API project".
