DevOps: An Introduction (05:39)

Puppet Labs and Thought Works conducted a survey that determined that companies that implemented DevOps have better IT. Aiello describes how practitioners get to touch all aspects of the system and the culture's history. DevOps can mean a group deploying their own code, a team that functions within the operations group who automate the deployment pipeline, or an organization with large development resources.

DevOps: Challenges (02:50)

DevOps needs teams to realize they need to work together cross-functionally for a common goal; operations and development do not need to be merged. Aiello discusses how he obtained a computer science and industrial psychology degree.

DevOps: Benefits (05:03) decided to incorporate DevOps to reduce the backload of development projects, boost morale, and improve efficiency. Benefits include fixing errors quickly, using cryptography effectively, being more deterministic in building systems, and providing rapid detection of unauthorized changes.

Speak to testers, developers, and managers to determine what needs to be improved. Create a thorough process that continues throughout development and operation.

Best Practices include shift left, ensure the deployment method is the same across all environments, right shift, reliability, and continuous testing.
