Kelly’s talk with our Tampa Bay DevOps group covered Amazon DevOps yesterday, today and tomorrow. First, Amazon’s transformation from technology organization built on a monolith application into one composed of hundreds of independent teams building microservices end-to-end. All a decade before DevOps or microservices were really coined as industry buzzwords. 2nd Kelly discusses how AWS customers use the Cloud to modernize themselves at a much faster pace than was thought possible in the past. Finally, Kelly talked about the future of DevOps and special challenges presented by modern applications and what NextOps will look like.
