Justin discusses the culture and technologies essential for getting great products in the hands of customers—faster. He relays how, by measuring the velocity of product development from ideation to production, we can pinpoint and address the cultural roadblocks that are stalling progress. He also promotes an intriguing new approach to project estimation: target what can be developed in two weeks versus focusing on how long an entire project will take. Justin next elaborates on how Chef products—along with open source community contributions—can speed and support the DevOps process, providing automation and workflow tools to manage application code, infrastructure code, and compliance in any environment.
