Beginners Guide to a Career in DevOps
Audio : Listen to This Blog.
The software development lifecycles moved from waterfall to agile models. These improvements are moving toward IT operations with evolution of Devops.DevOps primarily focuses on collaboration, communication, integration between developers and operations.
AGILE EVOLUTION TO DEVOPS
Waterfall model was based on a sequence starting with requirements stage, while development stage was under progress. This approach is inflexible and monolithic. In the agile process, both verification and validation execute at the same time. As developers become productive, business become more agile and respond to their customer requests more quickly and efficient.
WHAT IS DEVOPS
It is a software development strategy which bridges the gap between the developers and IT Staff. It includes continuous development, continuous testing, continuous integration, continuous deployment, continuous monitoring throughout the development lifecycle.
WHY DEVOPS IS IMPORTANT
1.Short development cycle, faster innovation
2.Reduced deployment failures, rollback and time to recover
WHAT ARE THE TECHNOLOGIES BEHIND DEVOPS?
Collabration, Code Planning, Code Repository, Configuration Management, Continuous integration, Test Automation, Issue Tracking, Security, Monitoring
HOW DOES DEVOPS WORKS
DevOps uses a CAMS approach
C=Culture, A=Automation, M=Measurement, S=Sharing
