Atomic Talk Title: So You Want to Shift Right Over into DevOps?

As a career software tester, I heard rumors DevOps culture would put me out of a job, so I took a job testing for a DevOps team. Although I learned a lot working on integrating orchestration and workitem tracking software, I decided to go even further right to take on DevOps work myself as a site reliability engineer. Going into the new role could have been intimidating, but I made it exciting with my approach to learning. Shifting right over into DevOps gave me a new way to apply my testing skills. If you’re considering this career move, listen to my session and let’s catch up afterward to compare strategies!


  1. Examine your portable skills
  2. Sort through process and role differences
  3. Strategize your approach to new challenges
  4. Apply your testing mindset in support of DevOps
