Why the IT Pro should become a Dev and the other way around : a personal story about my view on the importance of DevOps

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For a few months now, every customer where I talk about cloud adoption, is talking about “DevOps”. So it got me wondering what they mean with it. Is it a technology, is it a business / IT process? Is it (another one??) new fluffy word for our IT admins? Well, it’s a bit of all of that, and in this session, I will explain you how, and most important why, I started to become a “DevOps” guy myself, knowing I’m a deep-technical IT Pro guy without any development skills. In this session, I will share my personal experience on how I found out in my own job role, I had to start turning to the Dev-side, to optimize my job. And knowing I’m mainly working with cloud technology, I will explain you by doing a lot of live demos, on where Visual Studio (yes, the MS development tool…) can become your prime tool of administration when deploying and building Azure Cloud Resources, PowerShell scripts and more of that fun stuff. Lastly, I will end my session by demonstrating cool integrations of Visual Studio with Azure Active Directory to integrate authentication to your non-authentication aware web apps, and how Visual Studio Online can help in using version control and deploying (web) apps to different platforms like testing/staging/production. And yet again, I'm still not a developer :)
