There and Back Again: Electronic Arts’ DevOps Tale
The DevOps path is never a straight line. Starts. Stops. Steps backward. Victories. Lessons. These all come with the territory – if you’re brave and courageous enough to start the hike. And if you’re not, your competition will ascend the mountain well ahead of you, leaving you with an innovation void, frustrated employees and customers leaving your camp.
In this presentation, Electronic Arts’ Josh Nixdorf will share the winding path taken by one of the leading global interactive entertainment software company – from its first efforts to transition to CI/CD, embracing Jenkins and what’s next. Josh will share best practices, pitfalls and the gear you need to add velocity, collaboration, scalability and innovation to your DevOps adventure.
