Teaching an old developer new DevOps tricks


I confess -- I was a enterprise software. We released software only occasionally. We threw release candidates over the wall to QA. Deployment and operations was the customers’ problem. From such a background, joining a DevOps team is an eye-opening experience. But I am proof that you can teach an old enterprise software developer new DevOps tricks.

Across the industry, the number of DevOps teams is growing. The number of experienced DevOps engineers is increasing, but at a much slower rate. To fill DevOps roles, it will be increasingly necessary to transition experienced engineers to the new way of thinking.

I will give advice for developers looking to make the smooth transition to the world of devops. This advice will also help devops teams integrate people from traditional development backgrounds.
