DevOps Careers Debate: Role vs. Routine
Date / Time: Tuesday, June 24, 2014, 2:00 PM New York/11:00 AM San Francisco
Overview:

It’s now common to see “DevOps Engineer” as a formal title, but some argue this misses the point — that DevOps must be part of every IT pro’s day-to-day job. Help InformationWeek’s Lorna Garey referee a debate between DevOps experts Andi Mann, VP, Office of the CTO at CA Technologies, and Rajat Bhargava, co-founder and CEO of JumpCloud.

At issue: Should companies hire DevOps engineers to drive their programs, or should the DevOps ethos be baked into all operations and app dev roles?

Join us Tuesday, June 24 at 2:00 p.m. EDT (11:00 a.m. PDT) for the interview and online chat. We’ll also discuss:

  • What skills IT pros should have before listing DevOps on a résumé
  • How the hiring calculation varies for enterprises with intransigent silos versus companies where the code is the product

Register for the show now and plan to be part of the online discussion, when Andi Mann and Rajat Bhargava will answer questions and give their take on the future of DevOps and your career. Please join us.
