Dev-Ops has emerged as a powerful trend in the startup and software engineering community over the past few years. But what does it really mean? Cliff will introduce 12 principles for successful DevOps and discuss how Amazon builds and deploys software at a global scale.

Speaker bio: Cliff McCollum has been with Amazon for over seven years. He is a Software Development Manager for the Machine Learning team in Amazon’s Supply Chain Optimization group. Prior to joining Amazon in Cambridge he worked for Amazon in Victoria, British Columbia building customer-facing tools for sellers on Amazon’s Marketplace. He has a passion for creating software at cloud-scale and in helping improve software development methods. He loves working at the interface between domains, in particular where business-processes and software-development meet. As a long-time software development manager and system-architect, he finds it particularly exciting when these two worlds come together.

Prior to Amazon, Cliff spent many years working at startups where he’s held the role of Systems Architect, Director of Software Development, and Vice-President of Technology. He has worked on the committee for the Canadian Internet Registration Authority and chaired multiple Software Management community groups. He holds a Masters in Computer Science from the University of Victoria. Outside of work, Cliff can be found running, scuba diving, driving his motorcycle or snowboarding.
