    The ability to use Google is a prerequisite skill.

    It is where you brag incessantly on LI and twitter that your a jedi-black-belt iron-fist-delta-master with technologies such as Splibble, Nozschlock, Sconk, Flarrrgh and Cumleft.

    Sorry thought I was in General, such is my feeling on DevOps.

    From what I understand its a bit like the old Release Manager role, with extra bits here and there to deploy loads of production scripts and releases.

    It is system administration done by automating tasks as much as possible. It requires programming skills. Actually the inventor of this philosophy (a Google engineer) defined it as system administration done by developers.

    The whole thing is described in a book, "Site Reliability Engineering".

    This. Physical Infrastructure is no more. DevOps changes the view of physical tin to one that is it a service to be consumed much like any other information service. Infrastructure requirements are defined via code template with scripts to configure them and the whole lot is automated using CI and CD tools. If I want to deploy an existing app to a new server, i change the template and it deploy. The devops tools deploy the infrastructure and code for me.

    Except that companies start because they think it will save them money, right to the point where they realise it won’t when they are asked to buy these automation tools and/or train their people to use them. Oh how I laugh when I explain this to them with a straight face.

    It won't save them money immediately, but it's more like a pension - try attracting top talent for your bare metal Oracle systems, enjoy paying someone to tickle your Oracle boxes just right so they perform well / have good up time.

    Something has to be said about managed infra and infrastructure as code. CUK dinosaurs need not apply.

    As someone implementing a DevOps support model at the moment, you know nuffink about me.

    I’ve fought hard for Enterprise Terraform and Docker for my teams. Much harder than I should have done.
