The DevOps Leadership Summit Wrap Up

The DevOps Leadership Summit instigates in-depth discussion as experts began to share their best practices, biggest challenges and most success strategies for large scale DevOps implementation in the form of interactive discussions, presentations and networking time. After some quick opening words by Derek Langone, XebiaLabs CEO, Dave Farley, co-author of the original Continuous Delivery book, took the stage as the keynote speaking. Dave's talk, "Farley's Laws" concentrated years of experience into three simple laws:
  1. People are Crap
  2. Stuff is more complicated than you think
  3. All stuff is interesting (if you look at it the right way)
