Cloud-based Developer Environments
Agile methodologies have revolutionized how teams work together. But at the core most teams still rely on developers maintaining and administrating their development environments. Is there an opportunity here to be more agile?
Join us for our February meeting on Wednesday, February 25th, as Lynn Langit gives us a peek into a future where developers are afforded more time to focus on development.
When: Wednesday, February 25th <-- Note the change to the 4th Wednesday!
Networking and food, 6:00 PM.
Activities start, 6:30 PM.
***** Always free, but YOU MUST RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org !!! *****
Cloud-based Developer Environments
Good agile teams are always looking for ways to eliminate waste. Time spent on activities that are necessary but not dire ctly delivering business value is one form of waste. Time spent chasing down configuration and build inconsistencies is another form of waste. Agile teams use automation - of tests, of builds - as a means to reducing that necessary overhead.
This month Lynn Langit will lead a session on taking that automation even further. We'll take a look at the automation of developer environments, cloud-based IDE's, and Lynn will lead us in a hands-on exercise creating customized developer IDEs using Codenvy.
A short introduction to Codenvy can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/user/CodenvyIDE
Attendees should bring a laptop in order to participate in this hands-on session.
Lynn Langit is a consultant with a focus on Big Data and Cloud architectures, and hosts a BigData channel on YouTu be (http://www.youtube.com/SoCalDevGal). Lynn is also the co-founder of Teaching Kids Programming, and an ACM Distinguished speaker. Lynn is on the board of Codenvy.
