One the most enlightening and entertaining presentations on Day one of DevOps Days NYC, was given by ScriptRock cofounder, Mike Baukes.

In his presentation, which is embedded below, Mike talks about a devops project he was on in Australia.  He and his team were brought in to a large trading firm to implement continuous delivery and integration, they got the code right but made a few critical mistakes.

Listen to Mike as he tells his cautionary tale.

Some of the ground Mike covers

  • Their charter and goal on the project
  • The team they created and the alienation it resulted in
  • What went wrong
  • How would he do it if he could it over again

Extra-credit reading

  • ScriptRock GuardRail, First Take: Cloud-based server monitoring and diagnostics – ZDNet

Pau for now…
