Demystifying DevOps and CI/CD

A presentation at DevFest KC in in Kansas City, MO, USA by Jeremy Meiss

While it seems that every week new terms appear to describe DevOps tools, segments, ideas, practices, etc., are they really new? And what is DevOps, anyways? Isn’t it dead, and Platform Engineering is the new hotness? In this talk Jeremy will first break down DevOps, its history, and why it matters, and what Platform Engineering actually is. Then he’ll dive deeper into Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) concepts, and why it can be the key to becoming a high performing team. Attendees will come away with hopefully some new knowledge of the history of why we do what we do!
