DevWithAzure - A DevOps Journey

Written by Tiyani on Thu, 30 Dec 2021 09:03AM



The tech space is a most dynamic and exciting space to be in given its rate of evolution, and challenges software developers to always look ahead and keep up with the shifts. DevOps is one of those practices that are becoming a standard at organisations and a demand for DevOps Engineers has become quite essential in the global skills spectrum.

According to a Microsoft's documentation, DevOps can be explained:

A compound of development (Dev) and operations (Ops), DevOps is the union of people, process, and technology to continually provide value to customers.

What does DevOps mean for teams? DevOps enables formerly siloed roles—development, IT operations, quality engineering, and security—to coordinate and collaborate to produce better, more reliable products. By adopting a DevOps culture along with DevOps practices and tools, teams gain the ability to better respond to customer needs, increase confidence in the applications they build, and achieve business goals faster.

The development phase of DevOps is where all the core software development work happens. It takes in plans for the current iteration, usually in the form of task assignments, and produces software artifacts that express the updated functionality. This requires not only the tools used to write code, such as Visual Studio, but also supporting services like version control, issue management, and automated testing.
