Building an open platform for government innovation
There's a software culture revolution inside the government. User-centric design, lean, and agile are first citizens, but the increased velocity in development and testing requires a change in the way the government does deployment, security, and compliance. Diego Lapiduz shows how the cloud.gov team is building tools to achieve faster deployments and continuous compliance in a secure environment.

US government software development is undergoing a revolution from waterfall, slow processes to agile, user-centric design and architecture. Applications are built in weeks rather than years and a culture of failure acceptance and iteration is brewing inside government agencies. Deployment, however, has been lagging behind and has become a bigger hurdle for innovation. The standard government security approval model has proven to be slow and the preferred solution seems to be limiting the stack developers can work with. That is why 18F, a consultancy inside the government for the government, has built the open source platform cloud.gov. Diego Lapiduz shows how the cloud.gov team is building tools that allow government agencies to achieve faster deployments and continuous compliance in a secure environment and explains how projects like Cloud Foundry, Docker, and Elasticsearch can all work together with the purpose of allowing greater innovation in the largest enterprise on the world.
