Where DevOps Starts: Developers, Implementers, and Leaders By Greg Pollock There's no right place to start with DevOps, but there are reasons that different people choose to start. There are also ways of communicating that make it more likely to take succeed in your organization. Being aware of the people you are talking to and the processes they work within can make your DevOps experiments more likely to grow into a business-wide culture. A forthcoming study sponsored by Microsoft and conducted by independent research firm Saugatuck Technology digs into the expectations different groups have for DevOps. Spoiler alert: not everyone likes DevOps for the same reasons. You probably know why DevOps sounds useful to you, but getting buy-in from other teams is crucial and tricky. Knowing what others are likely to care about can make it way easier to get them on board and ma... (more)

Chopping Up the Can By @ScriptRock | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Chopping Up the Can: How to Get More Done By Greg Pollock Today, DevOps is the latest and greatest in making work efficient. Before that, Agile called on us to rework our development process. If we keep going back we eventually reach Frederick Winslow Taylor and the birth of scientific work management. Taylor famously (or infamously) measured the time needed for every action in a production process. While degrading for workers, it was also effective. Taylor was able to pay higher wages because he made workers more efficient. IT workers can't be "Taylorized"-they need to make deci... (more)

CoreOS Takes a Swipe at Docker

CoreOS Takes a Swipe at Docker By JDH If watching your in-laws awkwardly bicker on Thanksgiving weekend wasn't enough for you, this Docker vs. Rocket thing feels like a full-blown go in the Octagon. For context, CoreOS announced on Monday that they don't agree with the direction Docker is headed, and are creating their own container runtime called Rocket. They cite less-than-stellar security, speed, and overcomplexity as reasons to compete with Docker, and decided to take the matter into their own hands. The kickoff blog post, which uses a good bit of stern language (in the con... (more)

What's New in DevOps? Anything? By @ScriptRock | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

There's no doubt that in 2015 DevOps is real, and strong, and it is your friend. If you aren't investing in DevOps now, you should be. Ask anyone, or just be quiet while they yell at you, and you'll hear that you need DevOps. We can get behind that to a certain extent. We love the principles of DevOps, we take it seriously in our own development practices at ScriptRock, and we design our software to be equally usable by Devs and Ops to solve their shared problems. We've been listening and contributing to the DevOps conversation for a few years. Here's the problem: almost nothing h... (more)

Declarative vs. Imperative Models By @ScriptRock | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Declarative vs. Imperative Models for Configuration Management: Which Is Really Better? As a group of concepts, DevOps has converged on several prominent themes including continuous software delivery, automation, and configuration management (CM). These integral pieces often form the pillars of an organization’s DevOps efforts, even as other bigger pieces like overarching best practices and guidelines are still being tried and tested. Being that DevOps is a relatively new paradigm - movement - methodology - [insert your own label here], standards around it have yet to be codifie... (more)
