I’m digging through a backlog of podcasts and the gem of the day goes to SE-Radio podcast. In episode #247 they talk about DevOps and while I’ve preached and practiced DevOps for years, as mainly as common sense, the podcast did present a more reasonable argument why it works.
Developers are praised and appreciated for short time to market; the number of new features they introduce and changes they make to the running system.
Operations are praised for stability and up time, and thus change is bad; many changes is really bad.
A DevOps fuse the two roles and responsibilities, the developers need to balance the business value new development may cause with the risks it introduce and balance what and when things are released into production.
If you’re into Software Engineering and DevOps curious give it a listen at SE-Radio #247.
