DevOps, Deindividuation and the DeLorean.

Trent Hornibrook theorises that the "us"/"them" culture in some organisations is a symptom of the social psychology concept 'Deindividuation'.

Encourage direct communication between people at all levels. Avoid, at all cost, the feedback by organisational hierarchy. Communication loses its authenticity when performed this way.

There is much written about the changing roles of Development and Operations staff when organisations undergo agile/devops transformations. But what about the changing role of the Team Leader?

In pre-agile environments, as a Team Lead, your role is one of structure and co-ordination, it is through you that work routes. You know the skills and capacity of your team and are regularly making decisions about what can and can’t be done.

You might find yourself asking “Do we need Team Lead’s in an agile/devops culture?” and If so “What value can I provide?”

The Four values of a devops transformation

A look into the four values that support a successful devops transformation.

In this post we look into the four values that support a successful devops transformation.

We all know DevOps is not about the tools or the process, it’s about a deeper cultural movement. But all too often we think about what DevOps is, and miss the focus on Why we do it in the first place.

Mapping system couplings and dependencies for discovery and profit

Crowdsourcing and social engineering combined with open-source tools to map your systems

Have you ever wondered just what would break if that system (you know the one) went down? Do you actually know what systems depend on it? How do the reports get from it to Marketing? In this post, I’ll describe a simple technique I’ve developed to surface and share all this juicy, interesting information.

Census 2.0

A hypothetical how to architect the census using cloud computing

In light of the #CensusFail the ABS delivered to us on Tuesday night, I thought I’d put a blog post where my mouth is and suggest an architecture I feel would have delivered had Cevo been involved in the creation of this years’ Census application.
