Where: Madrid, Spain
At bol.com, the largest online retailer in the Netherlands, they have spent lots of effort on creating faster feedback cycles. With the ambitious goal to release multiple times per day in mind, they've upended their organizational structure, to give teams maximum autonomy in their road to production.
After having attended this talk, attendees will learn about success factors for DevOps at bol.com, but more importantly they will discuss how these learnings translate to the context of other companies. The effect of these new ways of building and delivering software has a profound impact on the role of the tester. Should we all be looking for a new job? Go back to the school benches to learn programming and computer science? There seems to be a skill gap between what is asked and what is offered. But what is needed for DevOps success?
