Issue #395 - 2019-02-18 - What is DevOps for you?

Don't miss the next issue!


What is DevOps for you? Is it a new job-title for system administrators who can also configure systems running 'in the cloud'?

Is it a team of people who provide tools to allow all the others to self-service when they need to build/release/deploy a new version of the software?

Is it a philosophy or development mode in which everyone in the organization, or at least in engineering, is responsible for the health of the technical environments? All of them. Including the development, testing, staging, and deployment environments.

Asking for a friend :)

ps.: It would be awesome if you shared your thoughts and experiences as a blog post and sent me the link. I could then link to them in the next edition.

Enjoy your week!

Should Dave stop giving his class just because he also volunteers for TPF now? I don't think so, but what do you think?


A bunch of Perl one-liners to edit HTML files

by Gabor Szabo (SZABGAB)

I know some people will react to this with an automatic response 'never parse HTML with regex'. I wonder though, why talk in absolutes? Isn't it possible that someone might have special cases where the rule can and maybe even should be bended? Asking for a friend.
