Title: Intro to DevOps: DevOps on a Smaller Scale
Author: Katy Farmer
Abstract: This article, written by Developer Advocate at InfluxData Katy Farmer, introduces the reader to DevOps, noting that “the things that make it interesting are also the things that make it hard to understand.” She discusses why it’s difficult to nail down a definition of DevOps and the different approaches of large and small companies to adopting DevOps given their different needs and resources. She proceeds to cover ways to extract insight from technology and meet the DevOps communication goal. Farmer concludes by stressing the need to adapt strategies to the concerned organization and to pursue the ultimate goal of culture-building.
