16.00: Case Study 2: Walking the tightrope between Agile Product Development and IT Operations
by Kiffin Gish, Manager Development, Sdu Information Solutions, Amsterdam

Introducing and setting up an agile development team from scratch in a traditional plan-driven organization is hard. The real challenge starts while aligning efforts of this dynamic environment with the more structured and predictable world of IT Operations. What at first glance appears to be a collision of two totally different cultures is not so much a technical challenge as it is simply getting the opposing parties to understand and know each other better, sharing tools and knowledge. To better illustrate this, a case study will be presented about an advanced web-based e-government project, built using scrum, puppet and continuous deployment. deployment.

(The presentation went well, there was a big turnout and afterwards I met some people and had interesting discussions. I've also been invited to give a similar talk at the DevOps Summit in London this May.)
