As we all know, DevOps is not a person — it’s a complex set of processes, skills, communication, and tools between developers, ops, testing, and business units. DevOps entered the tech big scene several years ago with The Phoenix Project (2013) and The DevOps Handbook (2016) to address scalability issues and provide an opportunity for tech companies to ship software faster. It focuses on closing the loop between development and operations and drives production through continuous development, integration, testing, monitoring and feedback, delivery, and deployment.
The technology leaders have now switched to it, breaking communication barriers between dev and ops silos and reducing new features’ time-to-market. DevOps is responsible for the fact that we all use CI/CD systems, virtualization tools, and various automation to ship updates twice a day.
