DevOps and Cultural Revolutions
A nice presentation from OSCON.
Open source softwares provided new ways of collaboration, which are being developed under the loosely-coupled multi-organizational virtual team. It provided new cultural revolutions. Also, the buzzing DevOps is providing a similar revolution, as represented in the following quote.
The confluence of these two Twitter exchanges led me to reflect on the true essence of DevOps. It occurred to me that it’s not about making developers and sysadmins report to the same VP. It’s not about automating all your configuration procedures. It’s not about tipping up a Jenkins server, or running your applications in the cloud, or releasing your code on Github. It’s not even about letting your developers deploy their code to a PaaS. The true essence of DevOps is empathy.
It’s very neat insight. It’s not just about the technology, it’s about how to communicate and collaborate with people, for smoothly delivering the software.
