Wasted Gold Mine & What Data Can Do To DevOps
As CTO of CloudBees and the creator of Jenkins, I get to see lots of real-world software development. Our automation in software development is sufficiently broad that it is producing lots of data, but by and large most of those are simply thrown away. Yet at the same time, the management is feeling like they are flying blind because they have little insight! In this talk, Kohsuke will discuss how we collectively seem to miss the golden opportunity to improve the software development process itself, based on data. IOW, learning is lacking at the organizational level, let alone "machine" learning!
Kohsuke Kawaguchi is the creator of Jenkins. He is a well-respected developer and popular speaker at industry and Jenkins community events. Kawaguchi’s sensibilities in creating Jenkins and his deep understanding of how to translate its capabilities into usable software have also had a major impact on CloudBees’ strategy as a company. Before joining CloudBees, Kawaguchi was with Sun Microsystems and Oracle, where he worked on a variety of projects and initiated the open source work that led to Jenkins.
