Continuous Discussions: Mobile Delivery By @Anders_Wallgren | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Watch Our c9d9 episode with Patrick Debois, Etsy and AWS on Mobile Delivery

This morning on #c9d9 we were joined by Patrick Debois, Nassim Kammah fromEtsy and Trent Peterson from AWS, who are gearing up for a brand new DevOpsDays-styled event they are putting together- - called Mobile Delivery Days.

As a preview to the conference, happening March 21-22 in SF, we discussed the challenges that they were seeing in the mobile delivery space and the reason they got together to bring us this event. We talked about the tools and patterns in the mobile app ecosystem and how there's a lack of clarity around what to use and how to use it, which is what they hope to solve for by bringing practitioners to attend the event, share their experiences and learn from each other.

So the dumpster is on fire. Again. The site's down. Your boss's face is an ever-deepening purple. And you begin debating whether you should join the #incident channel or call an ambulance to deal with his impending stroke. Yes, we know this is a developer's fault. There's plenty of time for blame later. Postmortems have a macabre name because they were once intended to be Viking-like funerals for someone's job. But we're civilized now. Sort of. So we call them post-incident reviews. Fires are never going to stop. We're human. We miss bugs. Or we fat finger a command - deleting dozens of servers and bringing down S3 in US-EAST-1 for hours - effectively halting the internet. These things happen.

This sixteen (16) hour course provides an introduction to DevOps, the cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration and automation in order to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT operations professionals. Improved workflows will result in an improved ability to design, develop, deploy and operate software and services faster.
Authorization of web applications developed in the cloud is a fundamental problem for security, yet companies often build solutions from scratch, which is error prone and impedes time to market. This talk shows developers how they can (instead) build on-top of community-owned projects and frameworks for better security.Whether you build software for enterprises, mobile, or internal microservices, security is important. Standards like SAML, OIDC, and SPIFFE help you solve identity and authentication, but for them authorization is out of scope. When you need to control "who can do what" in your app, you are on your own.
The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-shaped.
