Secret to Devops has been discovered.

Writing my 1st blog post since my departure from my last employer while trying to enjoy the rest of the summer while looking for that next great adventure in my career. These days i spend most of my time trying to catch up with old friends while networking with other folks in the IT world and one thing i’ve notice is that all mention “devops” a term that i stumbled upon few years ago which to this day i follow its theory its way of thinking and I also educate folks that aren’t aware of the movement mostly Head Hunters and IT recruiters that are tasked with looking for the so call “DEVOPS Engineer” “Devops Manager” “Devops” “DEVOPS” – WHY ??? and this is where i scream out loud

Now don’t get me wrong I’m not mad at them I’m just annoyed getting emails daily from these people looking for this needle in haystack because  the HR person wrote this job spec based on some notes an overworked IT Director came up with or someone from the Business Side read an article on Tech Blog that said “DevOPS” would solve all the business problems with shipping code faster. I’ve gone on several Interviews lately and the debate of what DevOPS is vs what it actually is… Truth be told very few people in the space have read “Gene Kim and Kevin BehrPhoenix Project which is the a great textbook on what devops is .. One of my favorite books on the subject.. Now back to my rant so i came across this blog post tonight on ‘read&write about the true secret to devops is actually people which sparked this blog post because it’s something i’ve preached about for years that’s the true secret to running a great operations and development teams  is having people that are great at what they do – by great i mean someone that is great at ‘ writing code, debugging code, testing, troubleshooting hardware, tuning hardware ‘ thats the key to a well oil machine that what i think but i could be wrong who knows?
