If you are moving between methodologies, you are probably looking for a roadmap or at least lessons from someone that’s been through it already. Over its 10+ years, Veracode has moved from monolith to microservice and from waterfall to DevOps. We have learned a lot along the way and are eager to share the story.

As you consider the shift from waterfall to agile, or agile to continuous deployment and eventually DevOps, there is more to think about than just architecture.  Peter Chestna, the Director of Developer Engagement at Veracode, led Veracode’s own transition from Waterfall to DevOps and in turn has helped hundreds of customers do the same.  Join us as Peter shares his own case study, how Veracode reengineered its own architecture but more importantly the overall process including team structure, the technologies to build a robust pipeline, security considerations and the cultural shifts required.

What you will learn:        

  1. A basic understanding of Waterfall, Agile and DevOps from a people, process and technology point of view
  2. Considerations when transitioning between these methodologies including org structure, process changes and technical debt
  3. An approach to leading the change in your own company
  4. How security can best be integrated deeply into DevOps to keep schedule risk to a minimum and velocity high
