First, it was cloud computing, then it was platform as a service — and now, the latest threat to the IT ops specialization, some say, is the rise of serverless computing. The idea of NoOps — the concept that automation, abstraction and outsourcing to cloud service providers eliminates the need for IT operations entirely — has been around for years, but the IT ops species has yet to go extinct. Is it just a matter of time?

The 21st century has ushered in the age of software. Not only being leveraged to develop applications, software now defines how we interact with hardware resources within the private cloud and our own datacenters, networks and infrastructures. The potential speed at which systems and applications can be deployed is inhibited only by our own organizational cultures.

57 Habits of Highly Effective Developers

http://www.cio.com/article/3077833/developer/7-habits-of-highly-effective-developers.html

Larry Wall, the original author of the Perl programming language, once said that great programmers have three virtues: laziness, impatience and hubris. Laziness because it drives them to write labor-saving programs and document them well so they won’t have to answer questions about them. Impatience because it motivates them to write programs that anticipate your needs. And hubris because it makes them want to write tight code that other people won’t criticize.

8The Road to DevOps: How Enterprises Can Meet the Challenge

Few initiatives spark more turmoil within IT organisations than the shift from traditional software development and delivery to a more modern, DevOps-based approach. That’s a shame, because DevOps is a superior approach when compared to yesterday’s waterfall-style methods.

9The Symbiotic Relationship of DevOps and Open Source

DevOps is a relatively recent phenomenon—especially compared to the world of open source. While DevOps and open source are two entirely separate things, though, the reality is that it’s difficult to separate the two at this point. Many open source projects rely on DevOps tools and principles, and DevOps depends heavily on open source applications as both the glue that binds it all together and the engine that keeps everything moving. A new report from DevOps.com, “DevOps and Open Source,” digs in to understand the symbiotic relationship driving the next generation of IT.

10The First Step Towards Becoming Agile

The way we do business today has changed; with new and disruptive business models entering the industry on a regular basis, the rules of the game are being constantly re-written. Among the many changes that are occurring, the most significant one is that business no longer has a physical address. The traditional idea of where one transacts has been entirely overhauled. As a result, how we approach new customers and service existing ones has assumed a mobile and collaborative flavour.

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.
