Title: Thoughts on DevOps Training Date: 2013-05-02 Published: false
A hands-on exploration of building a practical DevOps discipline & Continuous Delivery pipelines, an 8-hour session hosted by Alex P.
DevOps is not a methodology (that was new to me) but instead a mind set or description of whatever it is your organization needs to do to take code from commit to production delivery.
XP and Agile are about shipping smaller pieces of software faster. This causes us to need automation to help with the process of commit through delivery.
On a 1-year project, spending one week at the end to build, install, test, and then deploy isn’t that big of a hit.
Shipping monthly though, this becomes the bottleneck. Shipping weekly means you’ll be spending a lot of money on Release Management or DevOps.
