Andrew’s session, DevOps at Scale: What it Really Looks Like to Scale Your Product Org from 1 to 100 People, will guide attendees through critical milestones of growth, from DevSecOps as a foundational concept on day one, to cross-functional release orchestration and DevOps toolchain management, all while scaling a development team.

“As organizations scale, they quickly realize that it’s not just about hiring,” explains Andrew. “It’s actually more about how your team’s development practices and tools pivot, scale, and meet increasing needs.” 

Andrew is an experienced product leader who has been fortunate to run large cross-functional teams, been involved in raising capital multiple times, and has built SaaS products across Australia, San Francisco, and Southeast Asia. At Atlassian, Andrew is responsible for bringing Jira Software's new DevSecOps & release management solutions to market.
