What you'll learn

  • Learn research-based best practices for making DevOps teams more productive


Developers drive new products and innovations, and what used to be of interest only to software companies and IT is now at the heart of every company—or at least of every successful company. At the same time, the role of the developer is rapidly evolving as new technologies, such as cloud computing, machine learning, and IoT, change what’s possible for developers and what’s expected of development teams.

Mandy Waite aims to understand what makes developers more productive in this new era of software development. Mandy digs into the work she’s doing with her team around DevOps best practices to identify new ways for developers to interact and how those new ways of working can help developers unlock greater productivity. She also discusses the key things teams should consider to build their own thriving DevOps culture, along with sharing details about what Google has learned from its development teams running multiple billion-user products.
