Four key lessons to apply from DevOps success stories

Source – techtarget.com For teams in small organizations, embracing and applying DevOps practices is often a matter of just doing it. There are fewer constraints, fewer moving parts, and most of the time development and operations skills are already aligned and close together — on the same team, if not the same person, which makes for many DevOps success stories.

Three DevOps practices to avoid the Thursday Night of Dread

Source:- infoworld.com I’ve found three specific DevOps practices that go the farthest in boosting team morale: Fast feedback Developers feel most engaged when they know they’re building something that works and adds value. You achieve this by creating a tight feedback loop, using test-driven development. Before you write a line of code, you define the criteria for success and create an automated test suite to verify you’ve hit your goal. You have to commit—really commit—to automation and telemetry.
