    What ISN'T devops?

    Seriously though, it's a bullshit term invented by management types to make it seem like they're being very clever by reducing the lines of communication between teams to make their development process more streamlined.

    Essentially translated is... Fewer people doing more jobs.

    It's the same as Agile. It means nothing, it's just a buzzword.

    @Codex404 "DevOps is a set of practices intended to reduce the time between committing a change to a system and the change being placed into normal production, while ensuring high quality." -

    Translated into English -

    "DevOps is a set of practices designed to reduce the need for a dedicated design, development and QA teams by pressuring a small core set of workers to put in more hours. A smaller workforce means blame can be distributed across all members with each taking a fair brunt of it. The lack of a dedicated QA stage means all changes are essentially untested, but as the use of downloadable patches is now commonplace, this is a legitimate money saving strategy and all the middle managers can afford Porches"

    Just to clarify here, I'm really cynical about almost all software development strategies.

    Making devs do sysops... Devs hate repetetive mundane tasks and will more often than not automate that shit.

    Give devs access to APIs for spinning up servers (openstack, docker,kubernetes,cloud foundry, heroku or whatever),

    make them QA their own shit (automated testing/tdd etc),

    make them deploy it (build pipelines,continous integration/deployment),

    tell them to scale it endlessly (micro services/serverless),

    put them on call for fixing shit that breaks in the night (self healing/chaos engineering)

    and the list goes on and will keep growing...

    Think it is lived from company to company differently. In ours it’s pretty much: you’ve build the product, you run it.
