3:30 – 4:30 PM Presentation

In this presentation Quentin will discuss how company culture has played a role to make informed decisions about technical priorities in the DevOps space at Finalze, a local software startup. At a high level, we will touch on how DevOps infrastructure and process has evolved over time, and how that evolution is a reflection of our core values. One of the big points will be how our 4-day (32 hour) work week has been folded into our DevOps strategy.
