The Business Benefits of a DevOps Mindset By Larry Salomon In everyday life, I find there are several parallels between day-to-day discussion and some of the lessons we can take from DevOps. Such a mindset can often bring a number of benefits to any business and often these eureka moments can grab you at unsuspecting times! Where Were You When...? For example, do you remember where you were when... Hank Aaron hit his 715th home run? Steve Jobs introduced the first iPhone?

Bubblegum, Foil and Continuous Delivery | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #ContinuousDelivery

Bubblegum, Foil and Continuous Delivery: Using the Right Tool for the Job By Larry Salomon My wife and I have a fun dynamic: she approaches situations with surgical precision, while I tend to be more of an imprecise paintbrush. One day, she chastised me for cutting something with a butter knife and insisted that I should be using a paring knife instead. I argued that it wasn't needed. Who was right?
