Improving collaboration and communication between an organization’s development resources and its operational resources is the focus of an upcoming conference co-sponsored by 18F and ACT-IAC.
Themed “Achieve Agile Nirvana Through DevOps,” the education and training event will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Friday, May 1 at the General Services Administration, 1800 F Street NW, in Washington, D.C.
“DevOps is an IT solution development and implementation approach that promotes better collaboration and communication between an organization’s development resources and its operational resources,” according to the ACT-IAC website. “This approach aims to provide increased quality and efficiency of the solution by focusing on the delivery of the entire ‘service’ targeted by the solution and not just one single software ‘product.’”
The American Council for Technology (ACT) - Industry Advisory Council (IAC) is a public-private partnership devoted to improving government through information technology.
The ACT-IAC Emerging Technology SIG Agile Committee will discuss how to align infrastructure, governance, compliance, security, and acquisition to rapidly deploy IT solutions.
Featured speakers and panelists will include:
- Mark Schwartz, CIO at United States Citizen and Immigration Services
- Lisa Gelobter, chief digital service officer at the Department of Education
- Greg Godbout, CTO at EPA and former executive director of 18F
- Kaitlin Devine, director of engineering at 18F
