Abstract:
Have you ever considered how agile practices such as automated testing could provide benefit to infrastructure engineers & operations staff that design and maintain the environments that run your code? In this talk, we will highlight how modern infrastructure concepts including: infrastructure as code, automation / orchestration, and network segmentation impact agile development activities. Moreover, if your team has adopted solid agile testing & technical practices (such as continuous integration, automated integration tests, and automated regression tests), your tests could provide valuable data & insights to enable infrastructure & operations staff to design and maintain a highly reliable, scalable, and secure environment to run your code. Join us to learn how agile practices (that you are already supporting) can provide additional impact by confirming infrastructure and network configuration changes do not cause unintended consequences to your code.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Awareness for how modern infrastructure practices such as automation, orchestration, and network segmentation impact agile software development.
  • Opportunities to use existing practices for agile testing and software development to support modern infrastructure activities.
  • Suggestions on how agile software developers can partner better with Infrastructure and Operations staff to reduce risk of configuration and network changes.
  • Opportunities to learn insights from others in the session by creating impact maps of how to apply agile practices to reduce risk of infrastructure and/or network configuration changes.
