Developing your DevOps Skills
If there is one constant thing about technology, it is change.
It started with mainframe computing, then minis, PCs, distributed systems, client-server, open systems, internet, ecommerce, mobile devices, ITIL, app stores, and now we have DevOps. So what is DevOps, why can it be beneficial, and why is it an important skillset for candidates who interested in adapting to the changing needs?
The Need for DevOps
DevOps – a conflation of ‘development’ and ‘operations’ — is “a software development and delivery process that emphasizes communication and collaboration between product management, software development, and operations professionals. It supports this by automating and monitoring the process of software integration, testing, deployment, and infrastructure changes by establishing a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably.”
