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

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.
