Reconstructing DevOps Principles By Ron Gidron What is DevOps? What are the universal principles of DevOps? How to you build a DevOps team? These are the kind of questions you often get asked when you're a self-professed DevOps enthusiast/evangelist/champion.

Why DevOps is Easier to Fail at than Succeed By Larry Salomon Since the term "DevOps" was coined in Belgium back in 2009, it has been impossible to avoid the debate raging around it. While we have watched it gain hype and momentum, many articles have been written to describe what elements of a DevOps strategy are required for it to be successful. In spite of this, not many organizations feel there is a need for DevOps. In a Gartner report entitled DevOps Adoption Survey Results (published in September 2015), 40% of respondents said they had no plans to implement DevOps and 31% of... (more)
