As Developers / Managers we almost everyday think and talk about faster / shorter Software Development cycles to increase our market presence/reach. Is there a way to measure how fast we are ?
Speaking of cycle: In Cycling a term “Cadence” is used, which simply means the speed at which you pedal. Cyclists measure this in revolutions per minute, or rpm. Similar to Cadence in Cycling, the cadence of a software team is measured by how fast and how frequent you can take your software live. Can you do this on every day, every week ? Do you have the tools for the same to Scale UP ?
While we try to improve the cadence of the team we have many challenges around Infrastructure Scaling, Test Integration, Configuration Management, Monitoring for uptime, Log Management, Security of Servers, Dev-Test-Prod setups, Maintaining single source of truth for your assets, etc… And how does these changes impact team dynamics ? If you have adopted some strategies have you noticed that your team has improved? do you need more QAs or do you need more sysadmins ? do you really need those many routers, servers or backups?
Rootconf is a conference which tries to address some of the challenges we face when we fine tune our infrastructure to be able to appropriately respond to a business need, while we Scale UP our Cloud or Web Infrastructure.
Developing a good Continuous Integration/Deployment/Testing/Delivery strategy is critical to improve the cadence of your team. Infrastructure and DevOps is an upfront investment human, time & money. The challenge always is whether you’re willing to make that investment right away, or in the future at a much higher cost and effort.
Rootconf is a conference which will help you to plan and develop a strategy map for infrastructure and devops. It will show you the building blocks for reaching a strategy for Infrastructure Scaling, Continuous Integration, Deployment and Delivery.
Rootconf is targeted at individuals, teams and companies that are seeking to scale the effectiveness of their developer teams and performance of their web stacks, thereby increase the Cadence of their software delivery.
Organizations which need a CI and CD strategy to achieve the above will find a substantial headstart in doing so, by attending Rootconf.
