Writing this blog inspired by many blogs and their ideas about DevOps culture.

Also would like to share my vision on DevOps culture. :p

Note: I am not going to describe anything technical with this blog. Just thought of sharing my understanding of DevOps. your comments are welcome :)

What is Devops? Does it have a definition? How to implement this? What are the tools available for the smooth Devops lifestyle? How to become a Devops Engineer?

There was plenty of questions popped out from mind when I started my career as a Cloud Engineer (Software Engineer — Cloud). I keep looking ahead always what I would be in the next 5 years and what I am doing for that right now?

I keep asking the questions to myself. And it was the buzz was moving around Devops is going to be a trendsetter of software industry …

So, I started surfing and tried to gather some finely tuned definition with a link for the DevOps Engineer definition, Job Role and a course link to be an Engineer.

And the goes endlessly and still I yet find a definition for the word. Later, it took time for me to realize.

Devops is not a Job title or Work role, it is a lifestyle, a culture and beyond.

Basically, a process that eases the deployment to production in an Agile environment. :( sorry no technical beyond this.

Simply automate the daily of a developer and let him do his work.

It all needs a passionate lifestyle and some of the key aspects are,

Never fear of technology - One golden rule; New technology is always simple, we only have to rework and relearn, Repeat!

Always have a go attitude: Devops lifestyle is always pilled up with problems with typical scenarios. And every day a new problem.

Whenever there is a problem there should a solution definitely and I am sure someone would have already solved that, We have forget everything we have earlier — start from scratch — rework and relearn.

And the great thing is the problem does not have solution yet? Bingo!!!

Define a solution to the problem with all your effort, Stage it, Sell it. You are an Entrepreneur, Product owner

And I am waiting for such a moment, Magical moment.

Never drawback on a problem; Always go, indeed look for a problem, problems are stepping stones where you could end up with a wonderful solution.

Yes, when you solve a problem faced by a group of people you will end with a market changing product.

To summarise,

DevOps is a lifestyle, which eases the lifestyle of a product team in an Agile environment.
