The Future of Operations: A Developer

Forrester IT

Additionally, as the velocity of change increases - and will continue to increase - the premise that we can continue to manage these systems with our traditional methods is no longer true. The management of your estate mandates that system administrators (sysadmins) quickly acquire skill sets common among Agile development and operations (DevOps) [ii] professionals. If You Create, You Develop - We're All Developers Now. Development & Operations (DevOps).

Sysadmins: You're All Developers Now

Forrester IT

In a past life I was a system administrator, or "sysadmin" I enjoyed it, but even in those halcyon days of remoting into servers and driving to the office at 2 AM (hoping the server room wasn't on fire), I knew I had a limited shelf life. In the age of the customer, admins need to be just as dynamic as their developer brethren. In other words, you need to become a developer. Application Development Methodologies.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.

Developers: Will AI Run You Out Of Your Job?

Forrester IT

Actually, if you are or were a developer, you've probably already written or used software programs that can generate other software programs. But that's not what I am talking about: I am talking about a robot (or bot) or AI software system that, if given a business requirement in natural language, can write the code to implement it -- or even come up with its own idea and write a program for it.
