Dave Farley's Presentation From Continuous Lifecycle London 2017

Continuous Lifecycle London 2017 Day 1

That’s a wrap on Day 1 of Continuous Lifecycle London 2017!

It’s been a busy day, but certainly one of the most engaging and informative we’ve hosted to date. As soon as we opened the doors the room came alive with developers, architects and other DevOps enthusiasts hungry to pool knowledge over a cup of tea and a pastry before the talks began.

Dave Farley kicked off with his keynote ‘Take Back Software Engineering’, calling for a return to a practical, iterative devops methodology that has seen success in so many other fields of ‘engineering’. In many ways, Dave set the tone for much of the day. Many of the subsequent talks fed the rooms’ enthusiasm for a ‘results-driven’ attitude’ that empowers developers to effect change within their teams. Sarah Wells from the Financial Times built on this ethos from a leadership perspective, focussing on ‘nudge theory’ and how it can be used to encourage your team to work with tools that most benefit the business without restricting them.

We would once again like to thank our sponsors, speakers and delegates for making day 1 of the conference the success it was. We’ll see you all tomorrow for Jen Krieger for Red Hat’s keynote on ‘A Culture of Openness’
