Re: DevOps isn't just about the new: It's about cleaning up the old, too
Yes, very sure. The DevOps movement was started quite a few years ago by IT practitioners. It was largely driven as a community thing (with strong links into the open source world) until quite recently (last couple of years) when the marketing guys jumped in. Having said this, I personally think there is a bit too much elitism and religion in the whole DevOps space, which together with the escalating marketing hype from the commercial side, makes it all sound a little idealistic. If applied well, though, DevOps principles (and the continuous delivery approach) can deliver some pretty solid benefits.
