“DevOps” is NOT a job title

... and DevOps is NOT even a methodology. It’s a philosophy, it’s a state of mind. When you are looking for “DevOps”, what exactly you want want to find? What do you want to achieve? A lot of processes are manual and it is necessary to automate? Or do you need some cultural change in general?

... and DevOps is NOT even a methodology. It is a philosophy, a state of mind.
The main problem is that there is nothing like common DevOps guy job description and every company offers different DevOps job.

So what is DevOps?

Developer scripting automation for admins?

Scripting infrastructure admin who can code applications?

Developer with deep knowledge of infrustructer?

Just a guy scripting automation 'cause nobody else can or want to?

None of these. But you can have all of them and even more similar roles in your team, department or company.

DevOps is not a specific job. It's a group of jobs that all work together transparently.

Do NOT name a team “DevOps team”

Calling your team as “DevOps team” will lead people to associate the DevOps philosophy with a specific role. Do you want to start doing automation? Do you want to start making changes in general?

DevOps is NOT just about automation

By Tomas Filip on September 27, 2020 in the DevOps

Do you think you are DevOps when you have some automation? DevOps is NOT just about automation, scripts or pipelines... it's not something you can start overnight or by hiring one DevOps person.
