Rootconf Delhi edition

On network engineering, infrastructure automation and DevOps


If you do CD on cloud, from day 1 your project is a maintenance project

Submitted by Vinod Kumaar Ramakrishnan (@vinodkr) on Sunday, 24 November 2019

Section: Crisp talk (20 mins) Category: DevSecOps Status: Awaiting details


Gone are the days when people used to think a project has distinct phases of development and maintenance. Even agile teams have a development window during which the processes are different from the ones followed after a first release. I have observed the most successful ones were the ones which treat every project as a maintenance project from day one. This means building security, monitoring, log aggregation, infra into the design; in simple terms a lot of left shift in the approach when going for cloud. We will look at the absolute must to architect an application for cloud so that going live is just a ribbon cutting exercise.

    Thank you for sharing this proposal, Vinodh. Couple of questions:

    1. Have you delivered this talk before? If yes, share slides used in the previous talk?
    2. Who is the intended audience for the talk?
    3. How do your experiences working as an architect in a consulting company extend to in-house teams?
    4. Since participants at Rootconf want to hear war stories, will you be substantiating topics covered in the outline with actual war stories from what you have seen with customers?

    Look forward to your responses.

      Hi Zainab,

      1. I have not given this talk anywhere, need to create the slides from scratch
      2. The intended talk is for architects and senior developers
      3. I work closely with in-house teams of every company I engage with helping them to setup platform on the cloud
      4. These will not be war stories, but definitely the stories of the long tail of problems that surfaced when people want to go live

        Hello Vinod, we’ll need to see a detailed outline or draft slides of the proposed talk in order to make a decision about the proposal. This is because the abstract is broad and doesn’t contain the details such as:

        1. Detailed explanation of the context and the problem statement.
        2. The case studies you will cover.
        3. Depth that will be covered regarding aspects of infra design.

        Please share the draft slides by 5 December latest, so that we can close the decision on your proposal.
