DevOpsDays DC key points
- John Willis thinks we have lots of reading time on our hands
- Lean Enterprise was focus of one session talk: “I read this book and here is how I implemented it and it worked for us”
- Josh Corman’s talk on Rugged DevOps was one of the more interesting relevant
- ‘root access is a bug’
- ‘give devs a tool before taking one away’
- OpenSCAP talk: A lot of the same design goals as Chef audit-mode. Lots of
support scans for platforms already. Haven’t looked at it yet. Julian may
also have thoughts on it.
- Fed space loves opensource since procurement process for COTS is so painful.
- Ken Johnson and Mike Nescott’s talk on DevOops security also pretty interesting/relevant to the fed space.
Open space on Windows Automation - Lots of Powershell - Success stories around https://octopusdeploy.com/ Octopus for deployments being used to automate release - WINDOWS ADMINS WANT CHEF SERVER TO RUN ON WINDOWS. - Just like Linux/Unix admins shudder when they’re told they have to run a core service that is Windows only.
