DevOps and IoT Talk


November Five (formerly Appstrakt) will come talk about two interesting and topical subjects in the tech world. You don’t want to miss this!


Lately, there’s been a lot of word out in the street (or at least the streets of Palo Alto) about ‘devops’, the cultural change that aims to bring software developers and IT operations closer together. Seven years after the term was first introduced, there’s still a lot of confusion about what the term actually means. In this talk, we’ll take a look at what devops is, where it came from and what you should know about it as a computer scientist.


  • Definition of devops, and why “devops engineer” is not a valid job title.
  • IT Infrastructure as code (config management, AWS/docker, continuous delivery).
  • The water-agile-fall model.
  • Devops at Appstrakt.

After our former talk by Bell Labs where we saw a general overview of what IoT is all about we’ll get a more practical use case here. November Five will talk about the underlying device they used to jump start their IoT development, the Photon from Particle, and how they did it.


As usual there will be free food and drinks.

WHEN: Monday 14 March, 18u

WHERE: Campus Middelheim, MG010
