Re: Another junket
For some bizarre reason it has always surprised my Java dev companions that I can run make on any of my current C++ projects, and have a new version of the software running on multiple remote servers within a few seconds. No "snapshots", no maven, no infrastructure other that cvs/svn/git. With master/slave (blue/green, it's all broadly the same thing (except for efficiency of the usage of the target resources), and NOT A FUCKING "dev ops" invention - it has been around a good few decades)
And if, or when, there is a problem, it is the work of moments to track down the build version(s) that caused it. Rollback is just as quick as the rollout. No dramas, not need for anyone to get exicted.
No appdynamics or other crap in the pipeline. Just technical skills.
Ah, and as I wrote that last three word sentence I understood the issue. Let's spunk our money and time on tools rather that skills. Yes, let's do that. And we had better attend all of the dev-no-ops sessions this year lest someone discover that the skills we need were in fact honed back in the '60s and '70s.
