Introduction to DevOps with Chocolate, LEGO and Scrum game. (Dana Pylayeva)
Limited Capacity seats available

Abstract:
This engaging and dynamic workshop uses “Chocolate, LEGO and Scrum” simulation game to introduce DevOps culture in a way which can be easily understood and appreciated by participants from different areas of organizations.
Are you tired of sub-optimizing by only focusing on improvements in your Scrum team?
Is your organization struggling to resolve a conflict of interests between Business, Development and IT Operations?
Join this session to experiment with optimizing a flow of work through the entire organization. Visualize negative effects of long sprints and deferred deployments.
Amplify feedback loop, bring in security and evolve towards continuous value delivery – all using LEGO and chocolate.
Inspired by ideas from “The Phoenix Project” and “The Goal", this workshop will help you clearly see a need for taking first steps towards introducing DevOps culture.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand and learn to address a traditional misalignment of goals of the 3 major groups in product development (business – ever-changing demands, development - focus on delivery, operations – focus on stability).
  • Experiment with decoupling of a Sprint (as a planning unit) from a Release (as a deployment unit) by minimizing the batch sizes, increasing frequency of releases, amplifying feedback loop and moving away from cyclical delivery towards continuous flow of value.
  • Understand how widening individual skills and working together with Operations and Security members can have a positive impact on the team’s ability to eliminate the constraints and pursue the improvement of the overall process.
