6:45pm - Introductions
7:00pm - Kevin Cameron - J.P. Morgan Chase
DevOps Evolution: Panoptic Culture
Kevin will share his experience in spreading the ethos of DevOps across both sunrise and sunset applications. He will talk about both successes and failures in building a collaborative inclusive culture across the globe, to strive for that “production stability” mindset from the outset. He will touch on how you can apply DevOps to more obscure scenarios and how to identify the right people and behaviors when striving for a positive transformation.
Kevin has 15 years experience working on all aspects of the Software Development Lifecycle. His roles have varied between pure Engineering, Development & Support. He has worked in sole contributor roles as well as managing large teams in his time at J.P. Morgan Chase. He currently drives a transformation program around DevOps & SRE Adoption within the Investment Bank and enthusiastically leads a local DevOps community of practice in Glasgow.
