It Begins

We started the #SpeedOfLife campaign last week, yay!

It has been a bumpy start but we’re happily moving forward. The first person I spoke with about delivering software at the speed of life was our CEO at Armory, DROdio. I posted a snippet of our conversation on Twitter last week and here that is 👇🏾

First Live Stream

A live stream happened.

I’ll let you be the judge of whether or not it was successful. It was mildly chaotic on my end but next time it will be better, I promise! We had at least one live viewer (shoutout to Morgan Lucas) and something awesome came out of my call into the void for a last-minute guest.

I got a DM from a Performance Engineering Lead at MathWorks. She’s interested in collaborating so hopefully I will be able to share a conversation between the two of us soon. I was able to chat with several people from the Armory crew about #SpeedOfLife and what it means to them. It’s awesome to share their perspectives, but I’m super-excited to involve more of the DevOps community.

#SpeedOfLife Examples Through Our Customer Stories

I edited the rest of my conversation with DROdio. I actually over-edited and a few words were lost. At 0:17 to 0:19 the words “Hall of” are dropped from the mention of Armory’s Hall of Innovation Award. Also, at 0:45, after DROdio speaks about the transformation at Autodesk. He says, “it’s a SaaS transformation.” Somehow, I dropped the SaaS from that sentence in editing so I removed the line. These little hiccups bother me so I may redo the video and make an update to this blog post when I do.

Bonus: click here to check out the AWS re:Invent talk that DROdio mentions.

Look out for #SpeedOfLife on our social channels. I’ll be back next Tuesday with another blog.

It outlines several actions that government departments must take, and requires them to adopt modern software development and security best practices. This post will explore several of these best practices and explain how Armory’s policy engine addresses them. We […]
