“If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself!”, it’s the conclusion of this talk. To work better, providing the right tools as self-service to your developer teams is a good way.

Zero Trust Security
A session about security in the platform using the HashiCorp tools. How to secure the network, provide authentication and manage certificates with this tools.
A good day of conferences with a lot of interesting topics. One think remains after all the sessions : The tools are a huge part of our works, but, it’s not the most important. To implement DevOps in a project it’s more important to change the mindset accross Developers team and Ops team. And finally, DevOps, is not a job title or a teams name.
