The shift left revolution is upon us. Developers’ roles are evolving as responsibility for application security expands into their domains so organizations can accelerate release velocity, increase productivity, and improve customer experience. The market is full of products offering to support these changes. 

How can digital leaders navigate through all of the noise and empower developers to level up their skills and embrace paradigm shifts? In this webinar, leading voices in the open source testing and security industries discuss strategies that DevOps leaders can use to help developers adopt the shift left movement.

Join Jeffrey Martin, Senior Director of Product at WhiteSource, and Marcus Merrell, Senior Director of Field Services at Sauce Labs, as they discuss:

  • The importance of the cultural shift in modern DevOps teams and how to create systems that embrace these changes
  • Tips for breaking down traditional barriers between development and other teams in your organization to improve productivity, unify communication, and mitigate risk
  • How open source management technologies provide critical solutions and why digital organizations must not only leverage these tools, but also contribute to them
