Duration : 00:37:31

The speaker, Johan, introduces himself and discusses his experience as a software engineer and author. He believes that while Git is useful, it is working on the wrong level of abstraction to be of much interest nowadays. Johan expresses his willingness to discuss various software development topics and his current position as a software engineer at Uber. He then begins to discuss devops and the importance of automation in creating a culture of continuous improvement in software development organizations. Johan argues that organizations often approach automation as a luxury instead of viewing it as a necessary component of devops and must shift their mindset to optimize for both speed and stability.
