Session Description

In order to fully understand how to achieve transformation, sometimes it helps to consider the counter argument. This session will take a journey to the dark side.

The situation: You find yourself trying to halt the momentum building around a DevOps movement by a bunch of young upstarts in your organization. This emerging culture threatens the ways of working that have become standard (and comfortable) while building your career. Your mission is to stop this DevOps transformation in its tracks.

Using the U.S. Army's Field Manual on Counterinsurgency, this session dives into the strategies and tactics used by the U.S. military to stop insurgencies and will teach attendees how to identify the other side's motivations so attendees can help advance a DevOps agenda within their organization.
