DevOps or DevX – Lessons We Learned Shifting Left the Wrong Way

In 2010 the DevOps movement set about solving the blockage on the path to production. The Wall of Confusion! Developers would throw new software releases, new features, and new products over the wall to operations who were tasked with supporting these apps in production.
As a community we have been tearing down the wall of confusion for a decade (sometimes building new and different walls where it stood) and we have learnt a thing or two along the way. In this talk Hannah will reflect on how we often “shift left” the wrong way, and how we might approach this familiar problem in new ways that set our teams up for success.
