Design and Implementation of the DevOps Organization and Culture:  Instilling DevOps values, practices, and culture into an organization is challenging.  Organizational structure, changes in process, adoption of new practices and approaches affect both development and operations.  This workshop, lead by John Esser, a long-time DevOps veteran and leader having spear-headed two separate DevOps transformations in different companies, addresses some of these concerns and will give some patterns and options you can use in your organization and DevOps implementation.  Plenty of time will be allotted for questions and discussion.  Some questions and topics that will be covered are:  How do you navigate within and leverage the existing organizational structure?  DevOps teams:  helpful or harmful?  What aspects of a DevOps transformation should be centralized and what should be distributed?  Who is affected most by a DevOps transformation and how to prepare for it?  What are some anti-patterns and how to avoid them?  Challenges with development?  Challenges with operations?  Come prepared to engage and participate!
