Event Details

After going through the digital transformation at Santander Bank and being at the position as Head of DevOps at Ailos, I can see that not everyone has a clear vision of the benefits of the union of DevOps and Agile culture. Not only I act as Head DevOps, but I am also an Agile Coach, which gives me the advantage of being able to collaborate, bring together and bring the best of both world in an environment of constant evolution. There are also the challenges of quality, security and architecture involved, and those are the key points to add to this relationship.
Agility can be in any form of business, but in software delivery, DevOps needs Agility in order to be scalable, as well as Lean IT.
In practice, the basis of everything is people, so the talk is aimed to everyone who wants to learn and evolve.

Learning outcomes
Key points not only DevOps and Agility, but also why they are important to improve and foster the digital transformation through organisations. As well as being aware of other must have competencies and awarenesses like lean programming in IT environment, patterns, metrics and a solid architecture.

IT Quality Expert with over 23 years of experience, I have worked in large companies in the banking and insurance industries. In the last 8 years I consolidated my knowledge in Quality, agile methods and DevOps. I participated in the Santander Bank’s digital transformation and today, as Head of DevOps, I use my knowledge and skills in the digital transformation of Ailos Cooperative. I believe that motivated people can achieve amazing results. I am an active volunteer at Jornada Colaborativa (Collaborative Journey) as an events organizer, host of the Agile Testing and Women in IT’s room, book co-author, book revisor and curatorship on the new books of Quality Agile Testing and API in Practice. I have passion to share knowledge, so I was a speaker at Minas Testing Conference in 2021, June and a speaker at Pipoca Ágil Podcast on April, 2021. Also, sharing information about DevOps pipelines in the Company’s workshop, like Guilda, on the beginning of September, 2021.
