The Lean approach champions quick, cheap experiments designed to test hypotheses. It seeks to spend as few resources as possible determining what to build and then, once discovered, to pull back hard and build the thing right.
However, typically in our environment, we scope a project, assume it's the right thing to build, try to build it right, and do whatever's necessary to get it into production, which takes incredible effort.
During this session, I'll tell the story of how we applied Lean principles to pivot a project away from our traditional many-people/many-months approach and towards a resource-constrained discovery phase. Our output was both working software which the stakeholder team could use to validate their assumptions about project direction, and a much better understanding of several early technical uncertainties that represented risk to the original project.

Once infrastructure becomes code it becomes testable as code (testing is generally considered a pretty good idea). It also becomes reviewable as code. Code review is a powerful complement to testing (and might just be the more effective of the two for finding bugs), spreading knowledge, and improving at the craft of programming
In this talk:
* Be convinced reviewing code review is also a pretty good idea.
* Cover pre and post commit workflows and example tooling to make your day better.
* Lessons from the messy growing pains of growing an organization from virtually no formal code review to reviewing every commit.
* Best practices for being an effective reviewer and reviewee.

DevOps has been a hot topic in the industry for some time now. A lot of people been talking about it. Some have built business models around DevOps-related tools and themes. People have made career around talking about it. In light of all of that, I find it chuckle-worthy that very few people actually know what DevOps is (just follow #devops on Twitter for proof.) I am not going to be one of many trying to create a buzzword-infested definition of DevOps to suit my particular agenda. Instead, I’d like to demystify some of the more common misconception about what DevOps is.

Open space topics will be selected during the agenda creation process. Pick a space to join and remember the guiding principles and one law:
Whoever comes is the right people.
Whenever it starts is the right time.
Wherever it is, is the right place.
Whatever happens is the only thing that could have, be prepared to be surprised!
When it's over, it's over (within this session). Do the work, not the time.
Law of mobility: If at any time during our time together you find yourself in any situation where you are neither learning nor contributing, use your mobility, go someplace else.

Vagrant helps developers minimize the difference between production and development environments. That's great for developers, but why should the rest of the team care? This talk will discuss several features of Vagrant that will increase consistency and minimize surprises throughout the deployment pipeline. The discussion will be non-technical, focusing on the value for the entire team.

Right-sizing your environment is one of the most stressful decisions to make when moving to the cloud. If you under-provision resources, systems are at risk of going down and you lose money. If you over-provision, you’re wasting money that could be used elsewhere. In this presentation, we’ll share with you 3 ways we’ve learned how to get capacity utilization wrong and how we eventually got it right.
1. CPU measurement alone won’t give you the full view of your infrastructure utilization
2. You can’t measure the utilization for a metric if you don’t know how high it can go
3. If you only rely on request count and don’t include queue length, you will miss an early warning

Is your performance monitoring using real-time analytics in a way that will produce results or noise and frustration? Real-time analytics can improve the value of performance monitoring by enabling operations teams to pinpoint problems faster and proactively manage applications, but it’s notoriously difficult to harness its value. In this presentation, we will show you how to avoid the pitfalls of partial analytics implementation, and explain the value of a comprehensive monitoring analytics platform.

In a quest to move faster, organizations can end up creating security vulnerabilities using the tools and products meant to protect them. Both Chris Gates and Ken Johnson will share their collaborative research into the technology driving DevOps as well as share their stories of what happens when these tools are used insecurely as well as when the tools are just insecure.
Technologies discussed will encompass AWS Technology, Chef, Puppet, Hudson/Jenkins, Vagrant, Kickstart and much, much more. This talk will most definitely be an entertaining one but a cautionary tale as well, provoking attendees into action. Ultimately, this is research targeted towards awareness for those operating within a DevOps environment.

We pursue increasingly rapid delivery cycles while achieving previously unimaginable degrees of scalability, reliability, and raw performance. But there is obviously a growing and serious mismatch between our development and operations performance in securing our applications compared to our performance in other areas. I work at a company extensively involved in Drupal and other open source projects that concentrate on both DevOps and security, but continue to be plagued by serious security vulnerabilities. Organizations and individuals negatively affected by Heartbleed and other security flaws probably would have readily traded some delay in accessing new features or temporary access problems for better security. So, how can we better focus DevOps culture and practices on the concept of Continuous Security to deliver this? Perhaps we need to look at ongoing advances in automated security testing, more rigorous and frequent manual code review, and paired/team programming practices, and work better on more fully integrating these all into DevOps.

Or, "Automation is hard and the enterprise is large."
Fewer steps, decreased time-to-production, faster iteration cycles... Devops practically sells itself - except when it doesn't. You can do all the right things but if you don't make it matter for Mission(tm), nobody will listen. We're very good at the first step toward excellence (doing great things) but we often forget about the follow-up - talk about it. But how? Where? Changing culture isn't easy, especially when you're a single person inside a huge government organization. We'll show a few tips we've learned along our journey toward making government work a little less painful. Speed of government? Red tape? Legions of bureaucrats with nothing better to do than slow you down? We know your pain. We're here to help.

DevOps practices create transparency and foster cooperation to support the government’s goal of increased speed in deployment, innovation, and acquisition. However, three fundamental challenges must be overcome before the Government can successfully implement DevOps practices on a large scale. These three challenges are related to tools used, process implementation, and current culture. This talk will identify the specific DevOps implementation barriers and strategies to help overcome them in large government organizations leading to happier and more productive developers.

Government agencies are often hesitant to use open source tools out of concerns of security and compliance issues. This hesitancy to use open source deprives many government agencies from closely collaborating with others to create software that is finely tuned and widely available to scratch its own itch. The five-year old OpenSCAP community is helping to change that and re-imagining the US Governments role in open source through its NIST-Certified SCAP 1.2 scanning software and growing body of open source licensed SCAP content. By the OpenSCAP suite scanning and configuration management tools, government agencies looking to become high velocity organizations can automate the cumbersome process certifying a server has been properly hardened for production and begin to develop community resources for hardening of other popular open source tools. The OpenSCAP community is actively developing suite of software tools to make continuous monitoring in agile environments easier, especially for developers, who often do not realize they could be scanning their systems more collaboratively with Ops. OpenSCAP is not merely a secure piece of open source software, it is software that helps demonstrate security and compliance. The SCAP-Security-Guide Project is the only source of official configuration management SCAP and hardening content for Linux that is licensed open source and also directly reviewed by official government agencies. Initially started (and still significantly funded) by Red Hat, the OpenSCAP project has recently moved it's repository from the the Fedora Project to GitHub and has seen an increase in the pace of development.
