Build Breakers, Not Gatekeepers (DevOpsCon Munich 2020 - Keynote)

Build Breakers, Not Gatekeepers (DevOpsCon Munich 2020 - Keynote)

Traditional software development occurs in phases, where QA, security and other roles act as gatekeepers to production. This leads to silos, delays and doesn’t scale.

So, instead of waiting for a human to decide what is and isn’t valid, learn how to use automation to continuously enforce standards in your software. Let’s turn gatekeepers into build breakers!

    We Improve Productivity? As Martin Fowler outlines,33 companies should be thoughtful about which so ware is strategic and which is merely utility. By addressing their utility needs with COTS solutions and minimizing customization, high performers save their resources for strategic so ware development e orts. We also see that elite performers automate and integrate tools more frequently into their toolchains on almost all dimensions. Although automation may be seen as too expensive to implement (we o en hear, “I don’t have time or budget to automate— it’s not a feature!”), automation is truly a sound investment.34 It allows engineers to spend less time on manual work, thereby freeing up time to spend on other important activities such as new development, refactoring, design work, and documentation. It also gives engineers more confidence in the toolchain, reducing stress in pushing changes. 33 Martin Fowler, MartinFowler.com, UtilityVsStrategicDichotomy. https://martinfowler.com/bliki/UtilityVsStrategicDichotomy.html 34 This is a site reliability engineering (SRE) best practice: reduce toil, which is work without productivity.
