As a developer in IBM's Cloud Garage, Holly works with customers who are trying to shift their businesses to the cloud, and to cloud native in particular. Their dream is more effort higher up the value chain, more innovation, and greater adaptability. What they really want is to beat their competitors to market, with something that's better than their competitors, and then evolve it to beat any new competitors. What's getting in their way isn't the technology - wrapping something in a docker container (usually) isn't that hard. Instead, it's the structures that have been put in place to manage risk and the relationships between teams that trip companies up.
In this talk, Holly will share some stories of customers struggling to get cloud native, and how she applied her methodology to turn things around. Holly will explore the ideal team size, the ideal microservice size, what skills a team needs, the role of architects, how to know if something is ready to ship, and whose fault everything is (joke!).
