The ACTOR 3 Project consolidates Inova-Ria’s leadership supporting Portuguese ICT and electronics SMEs to implement international quality standards for software engineering such as CMMI and IT Mark. This launching event will gather prominent national and international specialists to discuss new trends regarding Devops and engineering best practices.
Len Bass has over 50 years experience in the software business including 25 years at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University and three years at the National ICT of Australia. He has just published the book DevOps: A Software Architect’s Perspective which joins his two award-winning books in software architecture, including Software Architecture in Practice, 3rd edition and Documenting Software Architectures: Views and Beyond, 2nd Edition.
Len has written numerous papers in computer science and software engineering on a wide range of topics and done software development and research in multiple domains, such as scientific analysis systems, embedded systems, and information systems.
In this talk, he will describe the architectural and process mechanisms that support multiple independent deployments without the necessity for explicit, time consuming, coordination.
