Co-Ops: The Pipeline Driven Organization
B May 29, 2020, 3:20 PM - 4:10 PM
The People side of Agility
Why are some organizations able to implement true continuous delivery, and others are endlessly struggling and striking out on the path there?
In this talk we will introduce the idea of pipeline-driven processes - and how those are different from "we just have a few Jenkins jobs lying around". By delegating Tactical day to day IT related decisions to pipelines, instead of letting humans make them, we can slowly achieve true continuous delivery.
In a pipeline-driven world, testers need to learn new skills (coding, automation, coaching). Ops need to learn new skills (coaching, infra as code, testing). Security folks need to learn new skills (coaching, testing, automation and coding, ops). Devs need to learn new skills (coaching, testing, ops, security). Compliance need to learn new skills (automation, testing, coaching). Everyone is affected.
Pipeline driven organizations pull us out of our silos and into more collaboration. It can be really painful if we don't know what to expect.
In this talk we will discuss what such a process might look like in real life, what types of possible collaborations can exist, and what challenges we face making it happen.
