Jonny Wooldridge on Enterprises vs Startups – The Goat Farm – Episode 3

In this episode Ross and I talk to Jonny Wooldridge, formerly of Marks & Spencer and currently at The Cambridge Satchel Company. We ask Jonny his thoughts on what DevOps is like in an Enterprise vs a Startup, how to jumpstart adoption, how to handle “legacy systems”, and get his thoughts on concepts such as “Pace Layering” and “Bimodal IT”.

Ross and I also talk about why the language we use is important when talking about DevOps and DevOps concepts.
