Join this months Cloud Native to gain practical tips in observability for microservices and how to create a DevOps culture!
Getting the benefits of DevOps requires more than just tools and process. You also need the organizational context and norms - the culture - that allows DevOps practices and thinking to thrive. Nailing these down, let alone what “culture” even is, can be hard - the veritable nailing Jello to the wall. This talk will define what culture is and then cover several proven methods for leading culture change.

The world of IT is changing with a vast number of services moving from centralised servers to decentralised server providers the likes of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). With the concept of “serverless”, the services themselves are also becoming decentralised, meaning that they are broken down into smaller pieces called microservices. In his presentation, Andreas will explore the major benefits of going serverless, the challenges this approach to architecture presents to traditional IT security, and try to answer the question, “so why isn’t serverless super popular yet?” The presentation is based on an article published in the annual mnemonic Security Report (www.mnemonic.no/securityreport).
