The year is 2015. After little turmoil, DevOps has taken over the server world. However, deep in the heart of the cubicles, network engineers still toil and type away at manual configurations. NetDevOps is here to change all of that. Why do you need DevOps in your network? How do you start? What benefits will it give you? How can you combine this with Puppet? These questions will be answered in this talk!
Hey, automatically building a VLAN or applying some basic configuration to an interface on a command line driven network device is a neat trick but it's time to get real. Let’s start talking about how to tactically transform today’s mostly command and control driven, CLI interfaces into a more agile-focused, integrated solution. We will touch on the evolution of network support in Puppet and take a look at how it all comes together through the application of DevOps principles.
In this talk, I will share my top lessons learned over my years studying high performing IT organizations on how to sell the value of DevOps, and help other stakeholders and executives have their own a-ha moments. I will talk about specific stories about the circumstances that led to these a-ha moments, how they created DevOps champions in surprising places (e.g., Development, CTOs, Product Management, UX, Infosec) in organizations you'll recognize, and how they enabled implementing DevOps patterns that had awesome results.
