DevOps is not...
* A certification * A role * A set of tools * A prescriptive process
DevOps is... * A philosophy that starts with passion * A cultural, professional movement with attitude and values * A reaction to poor communication * About creating visibility between dev and ops * About the symbiotic relationship between dev and ops * Cross-functional teams over organizational silos * Products not projects * Automation over documentation (and more automation... and more...) * About creating self-service infrastructure for teams * Knowing that good software doesn't end with development / release * Software that doesn't require support * Ensuring a continual feedback loop between development and operations * Cross-functional teams over organizational silos * Creating products that are owned by the delivery team * Knowing that a project is only finished when it is retired from production * Something you can do without doing agile
What we want to achieve * Operations and development are skills, not roles. Delivery teams are composed of people with all the necessary skills. * Delivery teams run software products - not projects - that run from inception to retirement
