What we're about
Who is this meetup for? Our mission is to be open to everyone. If you are new to DevOps culture and tools please come to a meetup and learn about everything DevOps. We are happy to have you!

What exactly is DevOps? This can be somewhat varying depending on who you talk to, but in a nutshell:
DevOps is the practice of operations and development engineers participating together in the entire service lifecycle, from design through the development process to production support. DevOps is also characterized by operations staff making use many of the same techniques as developers for their systems work.“DevOps” doesn’t differentiate between different sysadmin sub-disciplines – “Ops” is a blanket term for systems engineers, system administrators, operations staff, release engineers, DBAs, network engineers, security professionals, and various other subdisciplines and job titles. “Dev” is used as shorthand for developers in particular, but really in practice it is even wider and means “all the people involved in developing the product,” which can include Product, QA, and other kinds of disciplines.
