DevelopOps

by @ 5:53 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, Signal Processing
 

IEEE Computer Society — changing the way we produce everything
DevelopOps is an idea discussed by many and understood by few. 
This yearâ??s events are the next step in providing answers to todayâ??s questions prompted by our changing software demands in 2015. 
â?¢ How can you innovate faster by accelerating software delivery across the enterprise? â?¢ Can DevOps really bring about 30 times faster deployments? â?¢ Can it link new features and stability so that both design and operations meet their goals? â?¢ Can it reduce bugs exponentially? â?¢ Can DevOps really allow new feature development while managing legacy software? â?¢ Maybe investing a half day now could save you weeks or months of time in annoying changes later?

DevOps will be held in Mountain View, CA on April 21stSee http://www.computer.org/web/symposia/devops-unleashed
