Keynote Speech

Application Driven Infrastructure

The way we have built and managed infrastructure in the past has often created obstacles and friction for delivering and evolving digital services. The evolution of technologies like cloud and containers, and of approaches like DevOps and Developer Effectiveness, has created the opportunity to do better. We can build our infrastructure directly from the requirements of the applications that run on it, enable Continuous Delivery and an Evolutionary Architecture.

This talk discusses how this evolution has unfolded, how leading teams are doing to take advantage of this, and how it is beginning to affect the way we build and deliver software.
