Walk & Talk: DevOps at the state and motorcycles

I snagged a few minutes with Milo Knezevic in this DTO Walk & Talk. Milo’s actual title is "Program Manager," but his real function is the State of Colorado's DevOps Guru. Over the past several months, under Milo's lead, what were buzzwords being thrown around in cafe and hallway conversations have become a reality. Milo took the lead to bring DevOps to Colorado OIT. In doing so, he has convened a cross-functional team, has conducted DevOps training, ran exercises to refine our process and put a structure around DevOps to fundamentally change "how" government works.... which is a Herculean task to undertake inside the complex admin layers of traditional government development habits.

Milo stares down complex tradition and says "Nope. We can do this better." It is not just an evolutionary leap -- it is a revolution and one I am proud to be a small part of.

Keep pushing, Milo. You got a whole team here that believes in what you are doing and happy to pitch in and support.

Learn more about what Milo does at the state -- and his love of motorcycles!
