What Is DevOps?

DevOps is a fusion of two concepts: Development and Operations.
  • Development involves the department responsible for creating the product, typically based on marketing requirements, as well as bug fixing.
  • Operations involves the department responsible for the product's production process, system installation, version management, quality testing, its release to the customer and its integration into the customer's environment.
Up until the mid-2000s, companies were primarily developing software for desktops – programs that ran on customers' personal computers, typically written in languages like C++, Java, or .NET, without a browser. With every software update, customers had to download the software from the manufacturer's website, install it on their computers, and run it.In the last two decades, software development has shifted to the cloud. Most software now runs on the companies' servers (which are often cloud-based). This shift is enabled by browsers, using technologies like JavaScript and frameworks like Angular or React on the client side, and server-side environments (e.g., Node.js), allowing the software to be run on the server and accessed by users.As a result, software development methodologies have also evolved. The principles guiding DevOps include speed, availability, reliability, security, and the software development life cycle.DevOps started as a cultural and organizational development methodology focused on collaboration between two departments: the development department (software development) and the operations department (responsible for delivering code versions). By enhancing and optimizing communication between these departments, DevOps improved organizational productivity through the integration of well-defined processes, involving continuous and iterative development, continuous integration testing, and ongoing monitoring of software applications throughout the development lifecycle.

A DevOps team consists of developers and IT operations professionals who collaborate throughout the entire product lifecycle to enhance the speed and quality of software deployment. This represents a new way of working, a cultural shift that has significant implications for the teams and organizations they work in.

Under the DevOps model, development and operations teams are no longer 'silos'. Sometimes, these two teams merge into one where engineers work across all phases of the application's lifecycle—from development and testing to deployment and operation—possessing a range of cross-functional skills.

DevOps teams utilize automation and process acceleration tools to increase reliability. The DevOps toolchain assists teams in tackling important DevOps principles, including continuous integration, continuous delivery, automation, and collaboration.

DevOps values are occasionally implemented on teams beyond development. When security teams adopt a DevOps approach, security becomes an active and integrated part of the development process. This is referred to as DevSecOps.

  • Continuous Integration — Continuous Integration is the practice of automating the integration of code changes in a software project. It allows developers to frequently merge code changes into a central repository where builds and tests are executed. This helps DevOps teams to address bugs more swiftly, improve software quality, and reduce the time taken to verify and release new software updates.
  • Continuous Delivery — Continuous Delivery extends Continuous Integration by automatically deploying code changes to a testing/production environment. It follows a continuous delivery pipeline, where automated build, testing, and deployments are scheduled as a single workflow iteration.
  • Status Awareness — Critical to every member within an organization is having access to the data they need to perform their tasks as efficiently and swiftly as possible. Team members need to be alerted to deployment pipeline failures, whether system-wide or due to failed tests, and receive timely updates on the health and performance of applications running in production. Metrics, logs, tracing, monitoring, and alerts are all vital sources that feedback teams need to be informed.
  • Automation — Automation is one of the most crucial DevOps practices, enabling teams to move much faster through the software development and deployment process with high quality. With automation, simple actions like pushing code changes to a source code repository can trigger a build, test, and deployment process that significantly reduces the time taken for these steps.
  • Infrastructure as Code (IaC) — Whether your organization has on-premises data centers or is fully cloud-based, the ability to rapidly and consistently provide, configure, and manage infrastructure is key to a successful DevOps adoption. Infrastructure as Code (IaC) goes beyond scripting infrastructure configuration and treats your infrastructure definitions as real code: using version control, code reviews, testing, and so forth.
  • Microservices — Microservices is an architectural technique where an application is built as a collection of smaller, independent services that can be deployed and operated autonomously from one another. Each service has its own processes and communicates with other services through an interface. This separation of concerns and self-contained functionality enables DevOps practices like continuous delivery and continuous integration.
  • Monitoring — DevOps teams monitor every stage of the development lifecycle, from planning, development, integration and testing, to deployment and operations. This enables teams to react to customer experience degradation swiftly and automatically. Importantly, it allows teams to 'shift left' to earlier stages in development and minimize broken production changes.

  • Speed — DevOps practicing teams release products more frequently, with higher quality and stability. In fact, the 2019 DORA State of DevOps Report found that elite teams deploy 208 times faster and recover 106 times faster than low-performing teams. Continuous delivery allows teams to build, test, and deliver software with automated tools.
  • Improved Collaboration — The foundation of DevOps is a culture of collaboration between developers and operations teams, sharing responsibilities and integrating work. This makes teams more efficient, saving time previously spent on handoffs and creating code tailored to the environment it operates in.
  • Rapid Deployment — By increasing the frequency and speed of deployments, DevOps teams enhance products rapidly. Gaining competitive advantage is possible through swift release of new features and bug fixes.
  • Quality and Reliability — Work methods like continuous integration and continuous delivery ensure changes are functional and secure, thus improving the quality of software products. Monitoring helps teams stay updated on performance in real-time.
  • Security — Through the incorporation of security into continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment, DevSecOps becomes an active and integrated part of the development process. Security is built into the product through active security review and security testing in agile development and DevOps workflows.

Currently, DevOps classes are held online.
