Jonathan Relf (@jbjon) is the Solutions Architect at Commify. Building on 11 years experience at Esendex in development, then moving to focus on DevOps as an Operations team leader, he's now working on designing projects across the growing portfolio of business messaging brands.
Outside of work, he's a CodeClub volunteer, produces two podcasts Book Club Pod & Twine Radio, and enjoys music, electronics, and running.
DevOps starts to deliver more value when it moves beyond breaking down team communication walls and the sharing of best practice starts to happen from all sides.
In this talk Jonathan Relf discusses how “infrastructure as code” can help you build secure, up to date environments consciously & collaboratively. You will be introduced to some of the methods and tools he has used to automate and test building virtual machines. He illustrates this with his own career journey from a Developer moving into Operations and the benefits these approaches have brought.
