The DevOps 2.1 Toolkit Workshop

This session includes lunch

Agile changed the way we develop software, but it failed to change the way we deliver it. As a result of facing new challenges, we got DevOps. DevOps is a cross-disciplinary community, or practice, dedicated to the study of building, evolving and operating rapidly-changing, resilient systems at scale.

DevOps is as much a cultural as a technological change. While it unites diverse teams and professionals and teaches us how to automate repetitive steps in our processes, it fails to introduce a real difference in the software landscape. Hence, DevOps 2.1 is emerging with drastic changes in our methods, tools and architecture. Finally, we have everything we need to build scalable, fault-tolerant and self-healing systems delivered to production through continuous delivery and deployment processes.

This workshop focuses on architectural changes and new tools we should adopt to be able to tackle the problems presented by a demand for modern, responsive, fault tolerant and elastic systems. It is based on the material published in The DevOps 2.1 Toolkit: Automating the Continuous Deployment Pipeline with Containerized Microservices (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BJ4V66M), written by Viktor Farcic, CloudBees.

The workshop will go through the whole microservices development lifecycle. We’ll start from the very beginning. We’ll define and design architecture. From there, we’ll move from requirements, technological choices and development environment setup, through coding and testing all the way through the final deployment to production. We won’t stop there. Once our new services are up and running, we’ll see how to maintain them, scale them depending on resource utilization and response time, recover them in case of failures and create a central monitoring and notifications system. We’ll try to balance the need for creative manual work with the need to automate as much of the process as possible.

This will be a journey through all the aspects of the lives of microservices and everything that surrounds them. We’ll see how microservices fit into continuous delivery or deployment, as well as understand immutable containers concepts and why the best results are obtained when all three are combined into one unique framework.

During the workshop we’ll explore tools like Docker, Docker Swarm, Docker Compose, Jenkins, Ansible, Consul, etcd, confd, Registrator, nginx, HAProxy, ElasticSearch, LogStash, Kibana and more.

Let's Build a Jenkins Pipeline

Jenkins Pipeline is a game-changing way to write automation jobs with Jenkins. Now Jenkins can support simple, one-step, Hello World-type jobs to the most complex, parallel pipelines. Best of all, it supports manual/automated interventions (eg: manual approvals) and also pipeline processes that survive Jenkins master restarts. The declarative syntax recently added to Jenkins Pipeline makes creating pipelines easier and the Blue Ocean UX enables beautiful pipeline visualization. Combining Jenkins Pipeline with Docker can seriously reduce friction in your DevOps efforts. Come learn how to use Jenkins to tie all these things together!

Leading the DevOps Transformation
What is DevOps - is it Culture? Tools? Process? Or “the way we build software”? Or is it the “outcomes” of increased speed, quality, and efficiency? You might be surprised to learn that it’s all of those – and often more. DevOps has been most effective when combined with Agile requirements management and automated testing, and the “sweet spot” is continuous delivery of custom applications – typically with cloud-native technologies like JavaScript, Node, and containerization. But it’s also possible to extend DevOps to other stacks (e.g. Java and .NET) and even to commercial packages and platforms like SAP, SalesForce, Siebel, and AEM. Naturally, this involves quite a few moving technology pieces - not to mention the organizational change – and enterprises that have combined a progressive learning approach with a unified vision for a DevOps transformation have achieved notable results. This session distills what Accenture has learned through numerous successful large-scale client DevOps engagements and guides others starting out on that journey.

ScrumOps

If you believe the hype that all you need to do to become a next generation agile IT organization is adopt Scrum and DevOps. Scrum to empower your teams and provide a lightweight framework for getting work done, and DevOps to provide the automation, systems thinking and lean practices to deliver and support the work. But for many IT organizations most their” work” does not seem to easily fit together in a unified approach.   On the other hand, you need to come together as an organization to understand what users need, build and deploy those systems, manage them over time and keep improving.  

But, how can this be possible with your current organization structure? 

In this talk Dave West, Product Owner and CEO of Scrum.org and Jayne Groll CEO of DevOps Institute will discuss what a modern IT organization looks like and how to bring the ideas from Scrum and DevOps together to shape the whole IT organization NOT just development and release management. In this talk they will introduce a model, code named “ScrumOps” that shows how the business, development, delivery, security and operations fit together to support continuous value in a governed way.

Winning Hearts and Minds to Create a DevSecOps Culture

With DevSecOps, we believe that “everyone is responsible for security”. No one would argue with that.

Through a set of exercises, you will get an insight into what it is like to scale Scrum using the Nexus framework. At the end of the workshop, you will be able to start talking how the Nexus framework would fit into you organization's way of working and the reality that "Scaled Scrum Is Still Scrum".

Jenkins Track Session 4: Mapping Your DevOps Journey with the DevOps Quadrant Maturity Model

In this talk, we will map the enterprise DevOps journey to the DevOps Quadrant Maturity Model. We will discuss the characteristics of organizations within each quadrant. We will present practical process, tools and leadership strategies for crossing the chasm from an organization's current quadrant to the next level of maturity.

Based on experience guiding large organizations in implementing CI, CD and, ultimately, DevOps at scale we have identified four maturity levels. These levels examine culture, process and tools to assess where an organization currently sits in their DevOps journey and that form the basis for growing and extending DevOps in the enterprise. Most organizations on the journey to DevOps map to one (or more) of these four areas.  

The quadrants are:
*Quadrant #1: Team-Level Agile Upstream
*Quadrant #2: Team-Level Continuous Delivery
*Quadrant #3: Enterprise Agile Upstream 
*Quadrant #4: Enterprise DevOps

By attending this session the audience will:

  • Gain a new, simplified framework for quantifying and communicating their organization's DevOps maturity

  • Learn practical best practices and strategies, based on real-world experiences in enabling DevOps in the enterprise [as appropriate]

See examples of tools and technologies like Jenkins Pipeline and CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise that are enabling organizations to move more quickly across the DevOps Quadrant Maturity Model
