In this episode, John and Damon get deep with Simon on the theories of managing organizations for competitive advantage, DevOps, and the Cloud.

DevOps Cafe Episode 30

Stop starting. Start finishing

John and Damon finally get a chance to interview David J. Anderson and Dominica DeGrandis from David J. Anderson & Associates. David is the pioneer who -- literally -- wrote the book on what is now known in the IT world as Lean Kanban. From Kanban's roots, to why Kanban actually works, to Kanban's relationship with topics like Theory of Constraints and Agile, this conversation hits the topics the John and Damon have been waiting to ask.

DevOps Cafe Episode 27

The Professor schools Skipper and Gilligan

Mark Burgess is a true computer science pioneer. Many of the ideas around server automation that we now consider self-evident DevOps best practices can trace their roots back to Mark's work. With his work in academia (Oslo University College) and his current focus on commercial concerns (cfengine), Mark makes for the the kind of guest that John and Damon love to have on the show.
