Surviving the “Script-ocalypse” on the Road to Scaling Enterprise DevOps

Avan Mathur, Electric Cloud

Scripts are not automation. But scripts are pretty much unavoidable in DevOps. From CI, provisioning VMs, test automation, deployment, monitoring – scripts are everywhere. Large organizations often experience a “Script-apocalypse”, where teams are buried in – and spend a large portion of their time attending to – sprawled, spaghetti, snowflake, nested, ancient scripts. That seem to have a life of their own. This talk covers five emerging patterns in DevOps automation, Pipeline design and Organizational design approaches gathered from large enterprises that have managed to climb out of scripting hell. Come learn tips and hard-won lessons for surviving your own “script-ocalypse”!
