During the conference, we try to create many ways where everyone – whether they're just starting out or are years into their DevOps transformation – can learn from each other and bring back the information they need to make their own journeys successful.
We recently had speakers and alumni of the DevOps Enterprise Summit share their best practices on a live video chat featuring Heather Mickman, Senior Director of Technology Services at Target; Pauly Comtois, VP of DevOps at Hearst; Michael Nygard, VP of customer solutions at Cognitect; Damon Edwards, co-founder and managing partner at DTO Solutions; and Sam Fell and Anders Wallgren from Electric Cloud.
You can watch the video replay of our chat below to hear some interesting insights related to middle management, a sneak peek at the presenter's upcoming their reflections on the DevOps Enterprise community, and their favorite resources for continued learning.
