To paraphrase a quote from http://devopsdays.org/ “Back then we didn't know we were going to change the IT industry. Devops has gone from an underground, to a wide mainstream industry adopted idea.” Devops is a term many PHP Developers will have heard but its not always clearly understood and often misinterpreted. In an industry that changes so rapidly it's important for developers to grasp and understand the core concepts of what Devops is about so that you can take your organisation or development team forward. My talk will dispel some myths, cover fundamental ideas,concepts and tools you can embrace mainly from a developers perspective. The main goal is to educate PHP Developers around exactly what Devops is and what benefits it brings to Development teams. I will break down the four main pillars of Devops and explain the core concepts within each of these over arching pillars.

Great talk! This serves as a great intro to devops principles, why we should all aim to implement it and what resources we can read and use to get ourselves started. Really great job of giving some history as well as personal lessons learned. I'd recommend this talk for anyone looking to get started on devops.

Really fascinating and captivating talk. Although a little bit rushed, but what do you expect when trying to compress a culture into a 45 minute talk.

10/10 would recommend.

Great talk. We're trying to implement devops into our company and this gave us a great primer to get it done correctly.
