DevOps.com Launches as First News Site Dedicated to DevOps Industry

DevOps.com, where the world meets DevOps, today launched as the first news website (http://www.devops.com) dedicated entirely to becoming the premier site for organizations looking to adopt a DevOps methodology. The DevOps.com site will feature breaking news and over one hundred (100) new original content pieces each month provided by some of the most prolific thought leaders who are driving the DevOps movement, including Gene Kim, the renowned author of the Phoenix Project.

The DevOps movement has risen to prominence since 2009 based on the need for IT organizations to respond to increased pressure to automate more, iterate faster and to break down barriers between previously segregated disciplines within IT. DevOps has grown beyond technology tools to encompass a culture and philosophy of empowering IT organizations to better meet the broader business goals of enterprises. Spurred by the cloud, virtualization, and mobile solutions, DevOps and the DevOps community is growing rapidly and significantly impacting the way businesses operate and succeed.

DevOps.com contributors will provide content that highlights some of the most pressing issues and trends within the DevOps industry, from firsthand accounts of successful implementation of DevOps processes, to pain points experienced around the integration of developer and operations teams, to tips and tricks for developers and engineers looking to release software on a much more aggressive timeline. The news site will also feature Q&A columns, global event calendars, and an event planning section that will help facilitate speakers and sponsors with local DevOps meetups and user groups around the world.

“After evangelizing about DevOps for all of these years, I am truly amazed when I see the progress we have made. DevOps.com represents a new milestone in bringing credibility and recognition to DevOps,” says Gene Kim, renowned author and DevOps thought leader. “I am looking forward to helping the DevOps.com team ensure that they give the entire DevOps community a place to learn, grow, and exchange ideas and information.”

“As an investor, I am hesitant to invest in any company with a web presence and 24/7 operation that does not already embrace the DevOps methodology,” says Brad Feld, Managing Director of Foundry Group. “At Foundry, we have been supportive and encouraged the development of DevOps.com from the onset and my partners and I are looking forward to its continued growth.”

“As software is eating the world, DevOps is leading the charge,” said Alan Shimel, co-founder and Editor-in-Chief for DevOps.com. “We think DevOps.com is perfectly situated to be the central hub of the DevOps movement in terms of thought leadership and facilitating the grass roots growth of DevOps. We are looking forward to expanding beyond our web site to holding great conferences and raise the level of awareness of DevOps to facilitate its growth.”

The DevOps.com website is available today and features stories by leading tech writers and DevOps thought leaders around the globe. It now offers a wide range of topics all touching on DevOps.

Additional writers and sponsors are encouraged to contact [email protected] for more information.

The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
