When Michelle first started talking about DevOps five years ago at Drupal Camps, "DevOps" just meant going the extra mile and maybe putting in a little too much effort to achieve results that business types were especially skeptical of. Now Drupal Camps are overflowing with submissions to devops tracks and DevOps skills are not just in demand, they are becoming a requirement for everyone in the Drupal community. Michelle will reflect on how we got here, why everyone should care, and what it portends for Drupal.
Michelle has been a devops developer for five years, building out infrastructure and deployment pipelines for major clients in the government and university sector, and sharing her learnings with the Drupal community along the way. Now, as a software engineer at Pantheon Systems, she thinks about infrastructure and deployment pipelines for hundreds of thousands of customers and is excited about the future.
