More than Code: Creating Production Ready Tools

More than Code: Creating Production Ready Tools - A talk that covers the aspects of creating internal tools beyond just writing code. We will cover such topics as infrastructure, policy, life cycle management and more. Writing tools is one of the best ways for a security professional to rapidly improve their skills. From finding hidden engineering documentation to making contacts on different teams, properly building an internal tool provides a substantial benefit beyond just the function of the tool. No coding knowledge is needed for this talk.
