The Beauty of Agile in the Cloud

As compared to other development methods, agile is clear, straightforward, and rewarding for all of those who are involved in the process. Most of you know this already—that’s why you’re here! Clearly, a successful transition to agile requires a strong organizational commitment and a number of management and development changes. With that in mind, the white-hot movement to this trend over the past year continues to amaze me. In striking parallel, the industry has seen this same sort of resonance around the trend to the “cloud”—secure anywhere access by distributed teams to a centralized set of services and compute resources that span the complete lifecycle of the development and deployment process.

DevOps West 2018, Agile Dev West 2018, Better Software West 2018 Managing Microservices Using Terraform, Docker, and the Cloud
Slideshow

Much has been written about how to write microservices, but not enough about how to effectively deploy and manage them. Microservices architecture multiplies the number of deployables IT has to manage by at least ten. In that world, tooling to manage cloud deployments and related infrastructure has become essential for success, and Terraform and Docker are increasingly being leveraged to facilitate microservices environments. Derek Ashmore will share his hard-learned best practices for deploying and managing microservices in production. He will leverage true infrastructure as code using Terraform, the leading coding framework for building and managing change in cloud environments. That code is easily reused and makes it simple to deploy and scale software, including Docker images. You will learn not only how to establish that environment initially, but how changes can be effectively managed.
