Panel Discussion: “Devs and Ops people – It’s Time for Some Kubernetes Couples Therapy”
When: October 27 at 7:45 a.m. ET
Location: Room: 411 | Huntington Place
Thanks to our sponsor, Spectro Cloud, we’re discussing the relationship between developers and IT operations — do they really talk, or just swap trouble tickets? The relationship needs some work! Moderated and hosted by The New Stack’s Alex Williams, along with Heather Joslyn, features editor at The New Stack, we’ll explore how Kubernetes is shaping the dynamic between dev and ops teams with people who’ve been there.

In this lively discussion, we look at how the eternal tension between experimentation and control can be resolved. Are dev and ops partners with the same goals and priorities and do they agree on the need for security and trust, or fight over complexity and cost?
