Just Enough WebOps for Developers

A session at Velocity Europe 2012

Thursday 4th October, 2012

2:00pm to 2:40pm (GMT)

WebOps does not have a natural place in the Agile Development cycle. Yet developers are increasingly taking more operational roles and find themselves having to:

  • pick monitoring, deployment, graphing and log management tools,
  • respond during off-hours because their cloud instances suddenly went bye-bye
  • come up with a culture of operations that does not drive them crazy

WebOps is not a completely new discipline and the goal of this tutorial is to cover the WebOps essentials in terms of tools, processes and cultural hacks to create “just enough webops” to keep the lights running without invoking methodologies that don’t fit the size of the organization (e.g. ITIL).

This talk starts with a short overview of the WebOps cycle, from instrumentation to deployment, monitoring, incident resolution and post-mortem analysis. Then I dive into the details of each stage of the cycle:
* why this stage?
* which tools can be used?
* how to do it well
* risks & pitfalls

This talk is primarily aimed at developers working in small- to mid-sized companies without an experienced ops crowd on hand.
