Efficient DevSecOps Workflows With a Little Help From AI

code red code red

From idea to the first line of code to production deployments - DevSecOps workflows help develop software faster. There is a different level of adoption, and processes feel inefficient or block progress and innovation.

Open the DevSecOps lifecycle. Which is the most inefficient task you spend a lot of time on? Long discussions in issues, MR reviews without context, maintaining legacy code, team onboarding with new project structures, missing unit tests, analyzing the impact of security vulnerabilities, or even debugging blocking CI/CD pipelines with long stack traces…

Join this session to learn about efficient AI workflows with practical prompts and advanced practices with custom LLMs, retrieval augmented generation (RAG), and AI agents. We will also discuss how to implement AI guardrails and measure the impact of AI on DevSecOps efficiency. Get inspired to implement everything into your AI adoption plans, and join the conversation after the talk.
