Bringing DevOps to organizations, teams and humans

Bringing DevOps to your teams, organization and projects is no easy task. It requires evangelization, support from business, management and teams and an understanding of DevOps culture, practices and technologies. I can help you through this process:

  • Help your organization and people understand the value of DevOps, working with C-level, managers, teams and individual contributors.
  • Organize your teams and projects go get the most out of DevOps, helping them communicate and collaborate through short feedback loops and continuous improvement.
  • Define your DevOps Architecture, Roadmap & Toolchain, and follow through its implementation and various project management phases

DevOps practices and methodologies are numerous. Knowing where to start, neither doing too much nor too little and implementing them the right way requires good counseling - without forgetting we’re working with humans all along. A few well known DevOps practices I can help you with:

  • CI/CD - Continuous Integration, Deployment & Delivery
  • Cloud-first approach with AWS and Kubernetes
  • Kanban project management and Agile workflows
  • Software Development Lifecycle Automation
  • Security without sacrificing efficiency
  • IaC (Infrastructure as Code) & GitOps
  • Observability: Monitoring, Alerting & Logging
  • Continuous Feedback and short feedback loops
  • Developer Experience and human-first approach
