ChatOps for Dummies By Jason Hand Since June of 2014 I’ve been attending a lot of tech conferences and events, including just about every DevOpsDays “un-conference” in the U.S. There are so many talented teams out there coming up with innovative ways to surface improved methods of delivering high quality software and services quicker and more efficiently. Of course, much of this is due to adoption of DevOps practices. One specific topic I found fascinating, was the concept of ChatOps. Simply put, it’s an approach that allows teams to collaborate and manage many aspects of their infrastructure, code, and data from the comfort and safety of a chat room. Through the use of chatbots and scripts, teams can execute commands, query information, and distribute knowledge across not only technical teams, but an entire organization. As I began researching ChatOps, I found a ... (more)

DevOpsDays Rockies: An Elevated Event By @Tarable | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

DevOpsDays Rockies: An Elevated Event By Tara Calihman Last week, I had the pleasure of attending my first DevOpsDays event, held down the road from the VictorOps office in Denver. It helped that VictorOps was a sponsor of the event and that our DevOps Evangelist, Jason Hand, was one of the organizers. But had neither of these things been true, I still would’ve had an amazing time. When you attend a DevOpsDays, it’s made clear from the beginning that you are a participant. I understood this in theory but it wasn’t until I went to my first Open Spaces session that I realized just... (more)

DevOps and Agile | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Agile #Microservices

DevOps and Agile: As Tasty as Chocolate and Peanut Butter? By Tara Calihman It’s easy to understand the confusion that is caused when the terms Agile and DevOps start getting tossed around.

But these two terms are more than just marketing speak – they’re technical movements born out of the desire to deliver better software, collaborate more effectively and bring a more robust end product to users. There’s a direct connection between DevOps and Agile that goes beyond sharing key principles. We’ve riffed on this before in a blog post discussing how D... (more)

Getting Started with the @VictorOps Transmogrifier | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Craftsy Case Study: Getting started with the VictorOps Transmogrifier By Samantha Haltman When VictorOps launched the Transmogrifier private beta program last November, Craftsy was eager to see what the feature was capable of. For this case study, we spoke with David Palma, DevOps Engineer at Craftsy, to hear what he had to say about his experience… “Rule creation for this feature was extremely straight forward” “VictorOps beat us to the punch.” When we found out about the new Transmogrifier feature, we were actually in the process of building something similar internally. We rea... (more)

Design Principles As a UX Tool By @VictorOps | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Design Principles as a UX tool: Part 1 By Doug Whitney Don't ignore the squishy bits! I recently had the opportunity to attend UI19 in Boston, a long-running conference focused on user experience design and ways to be more effective in a UX role as part of a larger team. One of the presentations in particular stuck with me as I returned to Boulder thinking about VictorOps and our evolution as an early stage startup. Presented by Kim Goodwin, her talk on Principles, Values, and Effective Design Teams touched on a number of challenges we've experienced first-hand here at VictorOps... (more)
