Handling organizational consequences of DevOps and Continuous Delivery
Often people tell me that their company is doing DevOps, cause Dev and Ops are working together on the same team. My response is always that it is a good start, but only covers page 1 of the 437 page DevOps handbook (2016) by Gene Kim.
So what does an organization have to change to create agility, reliability and security and really do DevOps besides bringing Dev and Ops together?
In this talk I will cover these areas to let you find out what your organization has to change:
• Knowledge of business priorities and strategies
• Establish a sense of urgency
• Making quality, availability and security everyone’s responsibility
• Cross skilling
• Experiment and learn
• Shared tools
• Continuous integration
• Continuous delivery
• Internal DevOps days
• Game days (hackathon)
• Communities of practice
User story writing and mapping workshop
Most Product Backlogs contain features, epics and user stories. In the workshop you will learn:
What are Features
What are Epics
What are User Stories
User stories are short, simple descriptions of a feature told from the perspective of the person who desires the new capability, usually a user or customer of the system. They typically follow a simple template:
As a < type of user >, I want < some goal > so that < some reason >
A user story must provide value to a user. Once you understand what the user is trying to achieve, it makes it much easier to create a good user story.
In the workshop you will practice with some example features and epics to write some user stories and you will write some user stories for your own situation, your own product backlog.
You will also learn that good user stories are:
But how to prioritize all those user stories?
In the workshop we will practice a method called user story mapping (by Jeff Patton).
This will help you prioritize your Product Backlog.
