DevOps is a trending buzz word. What is DevOps all about? DevOps is not just another name for infrastructure automation or system administration. It is a lot more.

DevOps is about getting your development to delivery process done right. DevOps is more of a methodology than a tool chain. DevOps lets you leverage technology to build innovative business solutions.

DevOps helps you build better software, software which can guarantee a long term survival in the unknown future world - it helps you adopt changes by following the Agile methodology.

DevOps space is the most dynamic today with hundreds of new tools being talked about everyday. The debate has shifted from "Do we really need DevOps" to "How can I do it right?"

I have contributed to development of DevOps tools, to operations and also in DevOps consultation to a wide range of clients where I got to see the real use cases of how DevOps needs to be adopted!

Join me in my session where I would like to cover the entire spectrum of DevOps and the buzz around it.
