About this event

The Telegraph, Carol Johnson, "From WebOps to DevOps"

As a major news organisation, the Telegraph has a history of staying competitive to remain the number one quality news brand in the UK. So, how do you support a fast-moving organisation that needs to embrace digital and where change is imperative?

This presentation tells the story of how the Telegraph’s web support team transitioned to a DevOps culture. It will look at how they moved from a team performing traditional website support and implementing ad-hoc releases & roll-back (you build - we support), to an organisation that now supports multiple CMS’s, platforms, apps, a subscriptions channel and APIs (we build - we support). Come and learn more about the impact of changes in organisational structure, methodologies used, the need to remove boundaries and how failure can lead to ultimate success.

Valiantys, Ravi Sagar, "Elements - a simple way to manage list in Jira"

Configuring sub-tasks requires a Jira admin. The UX is clunky to create one sub-task. And if you need to add numerous, structured items within an issue, these sub-tasks can impact your instance's performance.

By creating dynamic tables where users can manage their items and lists themselves, you can avoid subtasks. Elements allows project admins to quickly create and configure panels, grids or tables.

Users can add, edit and delete items themselves. Per column or row you can add, subtract, multiply and divide the data in your tables. These calculation fields are automatically updated to keep your data clean.
