If you answered yes to any of those questions, then register now for the latest GitLab London Meet-up event!

Developers can do everything - using Self-Service and IDPs for fast flow

The dream of DevOps involves automatic source code management and continuous integration and simple automated deployment pipelines. We want to move to the cloud for scalability and elasticity and to empower developers to choose their own path whilst automating everything they don't need to care about. But does this really work in a larger modern organisation? Can we actually make everything we think developers need self-service? Do we need a developer portal, and how do all these things actually join together to deliver value? Matt will run through the emergent methods and tools people are now using to do this well.

Empowering teams with TeamOps

TeamOps is a performance-centric operational approach designed to optimise team dynamics, streamline decision-making, and enhance organisational productivity. Developed, practised, and refined by GitLab, it’s a framework grounded in actionable principles that transform how teams work and relate. But can this framework successfully integrate into diverse team hierarchies and cultures? Can it be the magic potion that streamlines all operational hierarchies? How does it align with individual team workflows to foster a truly productive atmosphere? Steve will delve into the best practices being implemented to make this dynamic vision a reality.
