Teams that are embracing DevOps are becoming increasingly aware of the impact of code quality on deployment time and the ability to manage delivery while balancing risk. The DevOps teams of today are setting quality gates ahead of deployment to reduce surprises and allocating time in sprints to systematically reduce technical debt on the backlog.
Join us September 19 for an open conversation on managing risk in DevOps. Based on attendance we can discuss DevOps on mission-critical systems, in particular. Guest speaker, Dave Norton from CISQ, will share early results from CISQ's State of the Nation survey on software quality analysis.
