6:15pm – Nigel Kersten – Dev(Sec)Ops: It’s people all the way down
As technologists, it’s easy to focus entirely on the technical capabilities we’re building or deploying inside our organisations. However, tech isn’t deployed in a vacuum, it’s always part of a sociotechnical system, where tech and groups of messy humans are constantly interacting. In the 2021 State of DevOps Report we found that for most companies, organisational dynamics and social/cultural factors are the primary constraints around success at DevOps/DevSecOps silo-busting initiatives. Automation is critical, agile and lean are important, yet team identities and interactions matter the most at any non-trivial scale.
