“DevOps is still a relatively new term and the meaning behind it changes depending on who you talk to and what day of the week it is” – Matt Smith, Net-A-Porter
“DevOps means be good to one another” – Chris Jackson, Pearson
“Code less, think more” – Gregory Becker, Not on the High Street
“I see the lines blurring between traditionally distinct roles into crossfunctional teams, consisting of people with both a deep knowledge in focused areas complemented with a wide breadth of other skills” – Chris O’Dell, Just Eat
“We will see changes in the types and extents of collaboration between Dev and Ops teams as different kinds of technologies mature. In particular, different approaches are suitable for Docker, containers, managed container stacks like Kubernetes, and serverless architectures like AWS Lambda or Azure Functions”. – Matthew Skelton, Skelton Thatcher Consulting
