Defining DevOps with Alan Sharp-Paul

About Show #382

Richard talks to Alan Sharp-Paul about the challenges of building a DevOps culture in your organization. Alan talks about the problem just defining DevOps - it's approaching the abused word state with so many organizations piling onto the term. The discussion digs into the early stages of DevOps culture, focusing first on discovery: Do you really know how your infrastructure is set up and configured? For sure? How do you check? And what about drift? Providing visibility into how your systems actually work starts the conversation about making them better, and those conversations start you down the path of a DevOps culture. Have a listen!


Alan Sharp-Paul is the Cofounder and Co-CEO of ScriptRock, makers of the cloud based configuration monitoring platform GuardRail. A web developer by trade, he has spent more years than he'd care to admit working in Corporate IT at companies like Expedia, Lloyds and CBA. Whilst based in "the Valley" Alan is far more interested in solving the problems facing SMBs and the Enterprise than he is in getting caught up in the so called bleeding edge.
