Devopsdays is a worldwide series of technical conferences covering topics of software development, IT infrastructure operations, and the intersection between them. Each event is run by volunteers from the local area.
Most devopsdays events feature a combination of curated talks (see open Calls for Proposals) and self organized open space content. Topics often include automation, testing, security, and organizational culture.
The first devopsdays was held in Ghent, Belgium in 2009. Since then, devopsdays events have multiplied, and if there isn’t one in your city, check out the information about organizing one yourself!
The devopsdays global core team guides local organizers in hosting their own devopsdays events worldwide. Active core organizers onboard and guide events, answer questions, and maintain the website. Advisory core organizers are less involved day-to-day but weigh in on important matters and assist as needed. Emeritus core organizers are no longer involved in the core team; we thank them for their past efforts.
At this event, Joseph Katsioloudes presents Secure your code like NASA.
Security as Code (SaC) is the methodology of codifying security tests, scans, and policies. Security is implemented directly into the CI/CD pipeline to automatically and continuously detect security vulnerabilities. Adopting SaC tightly couples application development with security and vulnerability management, while simultaneously enabling developers to focus on core features and functionality. More importantly, it improves the collaboration between Development and Security teams and helps nurture a culture of security across the organization.
In this session we reviewed the lessons learnt from NASA’s Ingenuity mission to Mars to understand how automation and Security as Code (SaC) helped humanity move forward. Good news is that you can secure your code in the same way!
