Session Name: You Are Not an Engineer, You Are a Sociologist

In this talk, Jonathan proposes that the major problems that really need to be solved in software engineering culture, and delivery to improve the products we deliver to our customers are actually process and human-scale issues.  We can always do better, and DevOps is a great lens to working towards optimal solutions.  We will focus on areas and opportunities to increase our positive impact by expanding the DevOps mindset to encompass thought and practices from social sciences across a wider area.
