DevOpsDC Meetup Tuesday 15 Nov 2016

ACES, Inc. CTO Tony Alletag will be presenting on “DevOps and Government Contracts” at the upcoming DevOps DC Meetup Tuesday Nov 15th @ 6:30PM at Excella Consulting in Arlington VA.

Summary of Talk:

Government contracts typically do software development on isolated networks without access to the internet.  This causes many significant challenges to software developers that are used to having free access to all the tools, libraries, and experts that are available there. This talk will go over real examples on how government contractors are using DevOps.
