“DevOps and people: where automation begins!”

Anyone who advocates continuous delivery would say: “Automate everything!” – and Almudena is someone who would definitely agree with them. She states that we should never overlook the key role that people play as automation enablers.

Almudena firmly believes that the best recipe for success with complex DevOps scenarios is an intensive collaboration of all parties involved. To prove that, she has years of experience in the telecommunication world, where complex DevOps scenarios are common.

During her speech and discussion, we will take a closer look at the concrete scenarios from the telco world and its daily business routine. We will talk about the world where developers and operators are ready to do everything to go for an outstanding success story.
