From Hardware to Software: Cisco's DevOps Journey
DevOps was born of a simple problem - a lack of culture / sharing in a company, especially between the world of developers and the operations teams. Now that everything is becoming programmable and the world of technology is moving very fast, this gap exists between all functions within a company. In this session, I will talk about the last 4 years at Cisco, where I started and ran a company initiative to move our DevOps culture forward through community management, organizing unconferences and sharing best practices. I will also provide an update about where we are in our DevOps journey within Cisco, outlining the unique challenges we've faced as a Hardware/network company moving to software & DevOps. Finally, I will finish with an Open Source project example, illustrating the continuous integration / test / delivery / deployment / documentation part.
