I was asked a few questions for my upcoming talk about DevOps Middle Managers. I would like to share them and my responses below. I would love to hear your answers!
• In one sentence, how do you define DevOps?
A culture of bringing teams and people closer together by encouraging the core behaviors that make us more human.
• What challenges remain as part of implementing DevOps in your organization? How are you addressing them?
Bringing the periphery to the center of the change and making it about everyone.
• If DevOps was an Olympic event, which event would it be and why?
Relay racing. Everyone must do their own part (accountability), however there must be a high degree of trust and faith in each other. The handoffs must be aligned, smooth and muscle memory.
