Over the past few years (7-8) Yandex has passed its path of DevOps transformation. They gone from the matrix management model where a department of development and operation existed. They came to a model where dev implements DevOps. You write the code yourself — you exploit it yourself.
This is a large change of organizational structure, the mindset of people, their psychology, work culture. Danila wants to talk about how the company was moving towards it, what problems it encountered, how they solved them, what happened, how it works, what lessons they learned. Pros and cons of this approach.
The second part of the talk will be about how this organizational changes entailed large-scale technological changes, the creation of an internal cloud platform, and then an external one. In this context we will talk about what is the cloud platform for DevOps, what is its surplus value, where do this platforms develop and why we all will be there.
