DevOps hype? Sometimes a pizza really is just a pizza

Re: So... really... you want it plain and simple.

Four friends sitting round a table, one pips up and says "I want to work in DevOps"... The other three are seasoned IT professionals reply:

  • So you want to be a UI developer?
  • So you want to be a back-end developer?
  • So you want to be a infrastructure administrator?
  • So you want to be a network engineer?
  • So you want to to be a security engineer?
  • So you want to to be a database administrator?
  • So you want to to be a support administrator?

Suddenly a consultant barges through the door and says: No, that's old-school and obsolete. Methods of continuous delivery means in-depth expertise in specific fields is no longer required, convergence is order of the day. He wants a role that synergies and leverages these, to deliver a paradigm shift. (Then proceeds to submit an invoice, followed by a quick exit stage left)!
