DevOps involves integrating development, testing, deployment and release cycles into a collaborative process. Learn more about the 4 steps to an effective DevSecOps infrastructure.

Entrepreneur, researcher, and author, Gene Kim, took some time to sit down with Rajat Bhargava, CEO of JumpCloud, to discuss different aspects of high-performing technology organizations he has been studying for over a decade and how DevOps methodologies have spurred unicorn businesses like Twitter, Amazon, and Netflix.

Gene offers practical advice for people in organizations needing implement DevOps methodologies. We won’t spoil the video as Gene offers valuable insights and anecdotal words of advice for companies striving to provide rapid code deployment, reliable and secure products, but here are three takeaways and questions Gene gave us:

  • Is ops and info security checking in all production artifacts?
  • Is there an automated code deployment process that can create environments on demand and secure, stable code?
  • Is there a production checklist at the end of the process that can be embedded throughout unit tests, integration tests, dev, ops, and security?

We highly recommend you check out Gene’s book, The Phoenix Project, and sign up for his newsletter, and, as a first step in enacting DevOps in your organization, give JumpCloud a free trial.
