DevOpsChat Special Guest: Larry Maccherone

We are delighted that Larry Maccherone will be joining us for this DevOpsChat to discuss DevSecOps.

Larry has a background in big data, statistical analysis and cyber security and is a keen evangelist of of Agile and DevOps. More recently his focus has been on how security can become an integral part of software development, deployment and operation rather than a “bolt-on”. This has led to the coining of the term DevSecOps and his recent blog post about The DevSecOps Manifesto. You can see the questions for this chat at the bottom of this page.
