Developer Experience is central to DevOps success

A presentation at Open Source Summit North America 2024 in in Seattle, WA, USA by Jeremy Meiss

Developer Experience (DevEx) is not just describing the “frontend” experience - it’s about every aspect of the experience your developers (internal and external) have with your product, tooling, systems, etc. Platform engineering has emerged as this general way to remove developer toil, but DevEx is more than that, encompassing everything from deployment pipelines to IaC practices to developer efficiencies and productivity to UI/UX to even APIs. In this talk, we will focus on some of the principles of DevOps (collaboration, communication, shared responsibility) and how a strong DevEx mindset can bring Dev and Ops together.
