Software Developer Modus Create Launches DevOps Wall Street Event on Agile Culture Shift in Partnership with GitHub


Limited Inaugural Event in New York City on March 3rd Highlights Advances of Infrastructure, Workflow and Automation Technologies for the Finance Sector
Contributors Include Marty Colburn, former FINRA CTO; Plus Top Talent from GitHub, Modus Create, Coinbase, Waffle.io and CircleCI



RESTON, VA (January 13, 2017) – Modus Create, the software design firm is announcing DevOps Wall Street–an event series focused on the agile culture shift in the financial sector– in partnership with GitHub, the software development collaboration and version control platform. Modus Create designed and is operating the series, starting with New York City on Friday, March 3, 2017.

Talent from Modus Create and GitHub will lead the sessions, diving deep into the advances of the latest infrastructure, workflow, and automation technologies of GitHub Enterprise, the on-premise collaboration platform for enterprise software development teams. Other partners kicking off DevOps Wall Street include Coinbase, the digital currency company; Waffle.io, the GitHub-powered project management tool; and CircleCI, the leading continuous integration and delivery platform.

Marty Colburn, the former Chief Technology Officer of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (FINRA) will keynote DevOps Wall Street. He will discuss the rapidly changing landscape of the financial sector that requires firms to adjust to compete in a more agile way, and highlight the challenges of mounting technical debt from legacy technology and method.

Session highlights include:

  • “Establishing a security first mindset through reviews and statuses” with Lee Faus, Senior Solutions Architect, GitHub
  • “Security, scalability, productivity: Embracing a DevOps mindset at Coinbase with CircleCI” with Rob Witoff, Director, Coinbase
  • “Cloud neutral deployments with Github Enterprise & Terraform” with Matt McCants, DevOps Engineer, Modus Create
  • “GitHub driven project management” with Andrew Homeyer, Founder, Waffle.io

“Today, every company is a software company. From global retailers to large financial institutions, organizations around the world rely heavily on software to drive change and increase the speed of transactions,” said Matthew McCullough, GitHub’s Director of Field Services. “We see many opportunities for Wall Street to adopt open source principles to build better software and thus remain fiercely competitive.”

GitHub Enterprise is a flexible, secure developer platform that allows companies to deploy and manage in their own, secure environment. Version 2.8 of GitHub Enterprise was recently released to include code review, project management, Jupyter notebook rendering, and more. Since launching in 2011, the service has seen significant growth, driven by large businesses revamping older software development practices.

DevOps Wall Street kicks off a series of larger events in select cities to highlight agile culture shift within the GitHub enterprise ecosystem. The next event will be in the Washington, D.C. area, focusing on the highly regulated government environment, with the Silicon Valley area to follow.

“We think DevOps Wall Street will strike a chord with decision-makers in banks and large-scale enterprises that need the latest thinking and insight on DevOps and the GitHub Enterprise Ecosystem,” said Patrick Sheridan, Co-founder and Managing Director of Modus Create, which was named on the Inc. 5000 List for the past two years as one of the fastest growing software developers in the U.S., and has conducted hundreds of meetups on key software topics across the globe, claiming nearly 10,000 meetup followers. “Modus Create knows the power of in-person group discussions to hone in on new software trends, network and solicit ideas and feedback and we are excited to kick off this series in New York.”
