Session Name: Getting to Minimal Viable DevOp-ness
How do you DO DevOps when you don't know where to start? How can you bake in a consistent CI/CD pipeline when all your projects look like snowflakes? And how to manage workflow disruption for a well-oiled and cohesive team? Getting to Minimal Viable DevOp-ness explains how the National Museum of African American History and Culture embarked on the journey and transformed these lessons learned into an adaptable and flexible DevOps way of working.
