3 new DevOps lessons learned

Source- enterprisersproject.com IT workers sometimes live in fear and too often loathe their jobs. Look no further than last year’s testimony by the former Equifax CEO as a reason why. He blamed a single IT worker for the company’s unprecedented data breach. That explains the fear, and his $90 million exit package may explain some of the loathing.

DevOps, like Agile and other trends before it, suffers from an identity problem. A great deal of time and

They’re talking the talk but not walking the walk, perhaps. Or

DevOps Transformation: Leave No Ops Behind

Source – devops.com Have you ever found yourself struggling to explain something that you know how to do without a moment’s thought? I’m not talking about the amygdala, the part of our brain that initiates the automatic “fight or flight” response. No, I’m referring more to the muscle memory-type behaviors that we’ve collected through life and, likely, pay little attention to while executing. Things We Take for Granted Muscle memory is awesome.
