Time: 4:15pm - 5:00pm
Handcrafted, artisanal: These can be great ways to describe beer or cheese, but if thatâ€™s how youâ€™re building and managing systems youâ€™re working way too hard for suboptimal results. This session will talk about how you scale up, using version control and configuration management (with a dose of change management theory) to build reproducible, reliable and manageable systems while leaving yourself plenty of time for the tasty handcrafted things in life. This session will be tool-agnostic; the point is to discuss techniques and concepts that you can use to move your environment into the manageable and managed future.
