Jeffrey Snover presented at the WinOps Conference in May. The session is now available to watch on YouTube. The topic discussed is ‘The DevOpsification of Windows Server’. Jeffrey Snover, a technical fellow at Microsoft, is the chief architect of Windows Server 2016 so he has been able to shift a lot of functionality from the traditional operator model to work with the DevOps style with developers, containers, and other industry changes.
The presentation is 50 minutes long and worth watching for Windows system administrators. It gives contextual history of previous Windows Server generations and a look at the future. The video is embedded below and the slides are available on SlideShare.
Everyone knows that DevOps is not about technology – it is about culture and process. But some technologies make some certain processes and cultures difficult and other technologies makes them easy.
This session explores why and how Windows Server 2016 was developed with DevOps in mind and what this means to customers adopting a devops workflow.
