Introduction to DevOps for Non-Engineers


Easier to say than most buzzwords, DevOps is also a bit easier to understand too based upon the general structure of the name.  “Dev” meaning developers, and “Ops” meaning IT Operations staff.  But this umbrella term encompasses a variety of interrelated and quickly evolving technologies, as well as a profound culture shift.  The culture and the technology can be difficult to understand, even for people working directly in the field. 

In this talk, we will lay the foundation of DevOps for non-technical people in order to make better sense of the DevOps landscape, the tools involved, and, most importantly, the culture shift that organizations need to make in order to achieve success in this new method of working to deliver better software.


Learning Objectives:

  • Definitions of the tech terms you’ll hear
  • The battle between Dev and Ops
  • The importance of Cloud, IaaS, PaaS, Virtualization, and Containers play inside of a good DevOps practice
  • Understand the difference between Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment and why those are important to businesses
  • Examples of DevOps tools by category and how they benefit the organization
