My questions? Is the idea behind DevOps that Ops people are writing more and more code? Or is the idea behind DevOps that Dev people are starting to wear pagers. As a developer, I like the idea of DevOps, because when I am called upon to diagnose a production problem, I want to have access to everything that the Ops people have access to--firewalls, load balancers... As a DevOps guy, I want access to all layers of the OSI model--even layer one. However, in the PaaS world, the PaaS guys would like for me to assume that the production problem is not in layers 1 through 4, which is a big leap of faith for me. :) To some extent, there are always going to be turf wars between Ops and Dev. As a developer, I do not want Ops to alter my application. And, the ops guys want me to solve problems with what they provide--where are my SSD drives? I guess I have a lot of "DevOps" related questions, most of which are at the forest level, rather than at the tree level.
