On June 23, featured speaker and Hopkins alumnus Jeffrey Garonzik addressed a crowd of students and faculty at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab to discuss the newest buzzword in software development—DevOps.

DevOps is an emerging software development method that utilizes collaboration, cooperation, automation, and integration between software developers and those who operate IT. In his presentation, entitled DevOps: A New Software Development Paradigm, Garonzik explored the applicability of modern tools to the common phases of DevOps, in addition to describing methods to teach it as a sustainable framework.

The event marked the fourth in the increasingly popular TechTalk series offered by Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals. These interactive seminars are geared toward students and faculty in the Computer Science, Cybersecurity, and Information Systems Engineering programs, but are also open to the public via live stream.

Garonzik is currently the director of operations in data science infrastructures for the Central Intelligence Agency. Now an instructor with Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals, Garonzik earned his bachelor's in computer science from Shippensburg University, his master's in systems engineering and technology from Johns Hopkins University, an MBA from George Mason University, and is currently pursuing a PhD in applied information technology.
