James Heggs - @eggsy84 ● Ops Manager @ResponseTap ● Very beginning of our DevOps journey

DevOps “DevOps is a software development method that stresses communication, collaboration and integration between software developers and IT professionals.”

Importance of the bus driver ● Experiences that led to the adoption of a culture

Insourcing the bus driver ● Small team ● Everyone becomes a bus driver

Key Idea 1 Don’t over-engineer your processes

Talented bus driver ● One staff member becomes a permanent bus driver ● Replacement bus driver making mistakes ● Custom bus tweaks

Key Idea 2 Identify the tipping point

Passengers ● Get the ‘right people’ on the bus ● Hire people that care

Key Idea 3 Hire talented, passionate people

What if your bus driver had an RTA? ● Do you have a ‘Sarah’? ● What if... ● Sarah could share her bus route knowledge

Key Idea 4 Raise the value of sharing and make information readily available

No seating plan ● Don’t let structure dictate who you sit next to ● Get passengers chatting to each other

Key Idea 6 Dev and Ops work together

Replacement bus service ● What if we always had 2 buses running? ● Passengers always get in on time

Key Idea 7 Design for failure, don’t just react to it

Journey times ● Are we nearly there yet? ● Make your journey public

Key Idea 8 Share your metrics

You have arrived at your destination DevOps?
