Watch it Wednesdays: DevOps Demystified

March 20, 2013 - by rachelbalik

Although it’s a word that’s used with an ever-increasing frequency, the definition of “DevOps” is still a mystery to some people. In today’s Watch It Wednesday, Ben Rockwood, Joyent’s Director of Cloud Operations outlines the philosophy behind DevOps and how it appears in practice. He explains it’s not just a matter of combining your Dev team and your Ops team. Nor is it just about tools or a single person who calls themselves a DevOp. Rather, DevOps is a cultural and professional movement.

Read more about the challenges of defining DevOps in a guest post on Boundary’s blog by Grig Gheorghiu, VP of Technical Operations at Nasty Gal, and in an earlier post on Ben’s own blog.
