    DevOps is about changing the organizational culture to break down barriers between organizations (Development, Operations, Security, etc) automating builds, test, configuration and deployment and tackling painful tasks more frequently, until they're just not painful anymore. The skills needed for moving from a traditional waterfall approach to DevOps can be overwhelming to an organization that is used to small incremental changes in how they do business, especially when large legacy code bases are involved. At Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services (IIS), we've been driving toward DevOps for the last few years, with varying levels of adoption. In the last six months, our customers have started demanding DevOps, increasing the urgency to have people with the appropriate automation skills on our teams. There are scores of tools involved with a fully automated DevOps environment. There are scripting languages to learn; test frameworks to adopt; process and culture changes to make; etc. Unfortunately, finding and hiring talent with the required skills has proven difficult. In this talk, I'll describe how we're addressing the gap between our needs and our current skillset.
