A whole new (DevOps) world
DevOpsDays Copenhagen 2018 was a great success. Inspiring talks and a pleasant community. I had the pleasure of being the host of this event. I decided to kick off the event with a song about DevOps. See the video and lyrics here.
To the tune of “A whole new world” from Aladdin.
I can show you my world
servers, shiny and spinning
Even if it’s crap you push
I’ll run it night and day
I send auto-updates
Interrupting your sessions
Stop presenting, this windows update
must be rolled out now!
My server room
Is where I fail your change request
Because I will seal the fort
Against the horde
To keep the business running at all costs
I will show you my world
Atom, VS or vi
I can edit
And make my code compile
No ones’ better than I
For I am building the feature
Overcoming the barriers
Of enterprise IT
I want a cloud!
A place to run my code for real
I want a new tech stack
We should be on Slack
A file in prod is what I’m gonna change
Together we are the best
Deploying faster than the rest
Business value is maximized, and
DORA says it’s so
Breaking down the silos
Conway’s law is a no-go
Changing cultures is very hard
So let us go unite
At DevOps days
Discussions in an open space
Ignited by the talks
That were on clocks
We’ll come home inspired
A whole new world
A way supported by our tools
We just deploy a bug
Don’t give a …
We do auto rollbacks
At DevOps Days
I swear I will participate
We will go use buzzwords
We are the nerds
At DevOps Days, today in Copenhagen.
Thank you for being the best audience and making my first DevOpsDays so cool!
Nicole Forsgren and the Accelerate DORA team has just released the newest iteration of the State of DevOps report. The report investigates what practices make us better at delivering valuable software to our users as measured by business outcomes. Read on for our analysis of the report, and how it can be best put to use.
The latest drivers of software delivery performance
A major challenge of software development is that our work is by and large invisible. This makes our folklore essential in business matters. Some of our commonly used arguments and visualizations are digital urban legends rather than solid foundations for informed decisions. Here, we’ll go through a few examples and some measures to address our misconceptions.
How the stories we tell influence our decisions
In the world of Agile and DevOps we use many figures, charts and diagrams to argue and reason about our world and how we prioritize and make choices. However, at all levels of the organization, we misuse and misinterpret figures. It’s time to be explicit, measure the right things and act on them. Watch this talk from DevOpsDays Zurich in May 2019.

Summer is a great time to catch up on reading, whether you’re at the beach, in a summer house, or cozy at home. If your book backlog is on the short side, don’t worry! We compiled a list of great books for summer reading.

This is a conference in Gothenburg for software developers, especially those with some experience of agile and a desire to improve their skills.

In the Accelerate book, researchers explain several metrics which they have shown will measure the performance of a DevOps organization, and crucially, drive performance of the organization as a whole. I will explain why this is important, using an analogy with your risk of a heart attack.
Clinical Trials and Software Process
Jenkins is one of the best adverts for open source and at Praqma we have been using it since the very beginning. We enjoy giving something back to the community by hosting Day of Jenkins, and this year’s event was packed with exciting developments. Read on!

Continuous Delivery and DevOps are here to stay and not because they’re being practiced by trendsetting unicorn companies. The fact is science tells us that these approaches work and this year’s conference gave us lots of examples.
