Mobile App Delivery By @Anders_Wallgren | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Patrick Debois, Etsy and AWS join us for a special episode of #c9d9 on mobile delivery

Patrick Debois (who coined the term DevOps), Nassim Kammah from Etsy (one of the original Unicorns!), and Trent Peterson from AWS (the cloud that needs no introduction) have teamed up to bring us Mobile Delivery Days - a new DevOpsDays-styled conference that brings Dev and Ops together around Mobile Application Delivery.

The conference covers everything from testing to publishing to running in production to supporting and delivering business insights - all for Mobile. The inaugural event is happening March 21-22 in San Francisco, CA (and is free!).

Ahead of the conference, Patrick, Nassim and Trent are joining us on #c9d9 thisThursday, February 25, at 9am PST, to talk about some of the challenges with mobile app delivery and operations, and some of the best practices and tool set emerging for streamlining mobile delivery.

Join us to learn how mobile is different - and how DevOps (of course) still applies!

DevOps is hot. Mobile is hot. This week we're thrilled to host 3 pioneers in modern software delivery on a special episode of #c9d9 to discuss DevOps for Mobile apps.

This special episode of #c9d9 features:

Patrick Debois Patrick Debois
Patrick Debois is CTO at Small Town Heroes. He first presented concepts on the Agile Infrastructure at Agile 2008 in Toronto and, in 2009, he organized the first DevOps Days, thereby coining the word "DevOps." Since then he has been promoting the notion of "DevOps" to exchange ideas between these groups and show how they can help each other achieve better results in business. In 2014, he joined Small Town Heroes as CTO, focusing on mobile apps and helping television broadcasters re-invent themselves in the Internet era.

The Time has Come for Mobile Delivery

How the Term DevOps came to be?

Back in 2009, in Belgium, Patrick Debois was living what would become known as ‘DevOps' day-in and day-out, helping teams test and deliver code.  Because the testing group he worked with sat in the middle of both the Dev and Ops groups, he was frustrated by the differences between them and the friction that these differences introduced. One day, he took to twitter to lament the fact that he couldn't be here in the US to watch the now famous talk by John Allspaw and Paul Hammond, "10+ Deploys a Day: Dev and Ops Cooperation at Flickr." Shortly thereafter, a tweet to Patrick playfully challenged him to organize his own event in Belgium. Patrick rose to the challenge. Not knowing what to call it, but knowing it would matter to both Dev and Ops teams, he chose the hashtag #DevOpsDays. #DevOps, and its associated cultural movement, was born.

Fast forward until today. Many teams large and small all over the world apply DevOps principles and practices to optimize their software delivery pipelines.  Now, as Patrick and others noticed, mobile developers are having trouble navigating their nascent ecosystem to find the right tools and even more trouble applying the established patterns to solve their unique pipeline challenges. And so, Mobile Delivery Days is born, focusing on the unique challenges and practices for mobile delivery.

Be sure to join us on the next #c9d9 and at Mobile Delivery Days to learn why the time is right for Mobile Delivery to advance your DevOps initiatives.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
