The History of DevOps at Amazon

All a decade before DevOps or microservices were really coined as industry buzzwords.

2nd Kelly will discuss how AWS customers use the Cloud to modernize themselves at a much faster pace than was thought possible in the past.

Finally, he will talk about the future of DevOps and special challenges presented by modern applications and what NextOps will look like.
