In your software powered company, nothing is more important than developer and operations productivity. Ideally, one should be able make change in production - through the safety of a CI and CD pipeline - on day 1 on the job. This talk shares multiple recipes that we have put in place to get to this "productive on day 1" ideal, including on very restrictive and regulated environments. The PC/MAC itself, the Integrated Developer Environment (IDE), running the service or application locally, as well as everything needed to manage infrastructure. We go through different solutions for 3 typical profiles: a front-end developer, a data scientist and an infrastructure as code developer.
