Event Details

When talking about technical aspects of agile, DevOps is the next thing to focus on, bridging the gap between development and operations. Big tech companies wouldn’t be big tech companies without applying DevOps principles and practices. So what works for big tech companies, could also work for your organization, right? Which includes an automated CI/CD pipeline for faster delivery, right? If this is the direction your organization is going, that might not be the right choice to start with… But how do you avoid taking the wrong decisions? How can you experience the impact of your decisions in a safe environment? Well, then Build-Run-Improve-Repeat can help you.
Build-Run-Improve-Repeat is a board game (only online for now) that revolves around the different stages of the DevOps cycle and their corresponding activities. It makes you decide how to invest in improving your way of working on all these stages and experience what happens if something goes wrong. And some things can really go wrong: what about bugs, security breaches, excessive load, performance issues, or system outages? And what can happen if your technical debt piles up because the teams absolutely need to deliver new features?
During this 90 minutes hands-on session you will get to know the gameplay of Build-Run-Improve-Repeat, experience what the impact of your decisions is and learn how you can get started yourself with this game in your own organization.

Koen Vastmans
I’ve been working in IT for 25+ years. After many years of development, I moved to agile coaching and training which I did for about 6 years. But wanting to be more involved in technical stuff again, I switched to DevOps processes. Even though I am no full time agile coach anymore, I still share my experiences often in workshops and trainings. Once agile coach, always agile coach?
My passion for learning new things and sharing what I learnt is my main driver.
