I would say that DevOps is just another devil which is daring to spread across the entire planet.
Oops did I say that DevOps is a devil?
Let me clarify.
I would rather say that the HYPE around the term DevOps makes it appear like a Daredevil.
But why so much of hype around it that make it appear like a devil?
And what could be the consequences?
Let me provide my opinion about the DevOps hype that is currently generated in the market.
Coming from the world of consulting let me share my experience about the market hype being created around DevOps.
You will hear job requirements for DevOps Engineer, DevOps Lead, DevOps Consultant.
But when you read the Job Description (JD) you will find lot of tools and automation being mentioned.
So what is the difference between a traditional build/release/deployment engineer and a DevOps engineer?
What is the real intention behind introducing the term DevOps?
Let me talk about how we evolved from the world of continuous integration to continuous delivery and how we are moving towards continuous deployment.
Scrum & eXtreme Programming (XP) helped us to deliver continuously by bring the developers and testers together.
Continuous Delivery is not enough? Why do we need to move towards Continuous Deployment?
Because of the need to Fail Fast we have to deploy our Product Increments often.
We need to learn what the end users really want ahead of our competitors.
Like how Google, Amazon, Flipkart did it!
How to make the devil disappear and bring in the Good?
Let me talk why DevOps is an end state and how it is not just another model that you can be quickly adopt in your organization.
