At the Unicom DevOps Summit event in London on February 28th 2014 we experimented with some extra audience/attendee participation by asking for questions on record cards and encouraged people to ‘dot-vote‘ on the questions most interesting to them. There were some good questions, but unfortunately we did not get chance to discuss many of them, so here are all the questions from the card board, along with some very brief attempts at answers.
- Should security be a part of DevOps?
- To what extent and how do you insist on standardisation for multiple Scrum + ‘DevOps’ teams with no separate Operations team?
- What’s the likely process flow of / disruptions to / duration of DevOps adoption?
- Where does ‘Operations’ sit in the ITIL model? All over the place? e.g. Service Transition?
- How about some example scenarios? Tangible comparison points would be useful.
- Where does DevOps start and finish (from a process perspective)?
- Is DevOps just a job title?
- Is co-location of resource necessary for successful DevOps?
- How essential is cloud technology to DevOps?
- How will the announcement that ThoughtWorks are ‘open sourcing’ their Go DevOps product affect other vendor products? Why pay for other products?
- There are a lot of open source DevOps/release/orchestration tools – is anyone using (or know about) the Windows equivalent?
- How do you overcome developer resistance to writing Run Book docs? Are the processes to drive adoption? Is it a sackable offence?
