Hygieia Dashboard – Making sense from your DevOps tools
Agile Richmond ABSTRACT: Tools are a big part of today’s Agile and DevOps methodologies. A typical app team uses Project Management, Source Control, Continuous Integration, Automated Testing, Code Analysis, Security Scanning, Deployment and Monitoring tools just to name a few. While each of these tools often has a dashboard, what is missing is a single end-to-end view of an app’s continuous delivery pipeline.

At Capital One, the DevOps community believes that while tools, automation and collaboration are very important, a continuous feedback loop is critical to DevOps success. Capital One looked for such an end-to-end visualization tool in the commercial market as well as in the open source community. Without much success by 2014, Capital One decided to build a custom solution to meet their needs…and then share it with the rest of the world.

Today Capital One’s first open source product Hygieia has over 130 forks with more than 400 stargazers. Formally launched at OSCON in July 2015, Hygieia is rapidly becoming a leading global platform for enterprises rolling out DevOps.

In this presentation, Dr. Tapabrata Pal of Capital One and Ryan Shriver of SingleStone will tell the Hygieia story from concept to MVP to launch. Designed and developed right here in RVA, we’ll demo how Hygieia visualizes the key continuous delivery metrics in a single responsive interface. You will leave with the knowledge and inspiration to setup Hygieia and begin receiving continuous feedback on your DevOps tools.
