Re: DevOps is still snake oil
Devops is simply making developers own their own work as opposed to them picking up tickets and checking in code. It also gives them a level of ownership over how their applications are deployed and how their infrastructure is built etc.
Thats pretty much it.
The rest of it, the conferences, the books etc, you dont need it. Anyone who says they dont need any devops software is lying to themselves - you think you can get away with no SCM? Or a build server? Or something like a Jira?
