How DevOps has evolved since 2012

“When Mike Loukides published the long essay What is DevOps? in book form for O’Reilly Media, he gave it a subtitle that would become well-known: Infrastructure as Code. That essay, just 20 pages long, proposed a few key things:

  1. Infrastructure moves into the code. The systems that run the software, which are in the cloud, are created by code.
  2. The operations role would move into the teams.
  3. Monitoring moves into the platform. The virtual machines we create, through code, to serve our software, will include built-in monitoring.

Eight years later, it may just be time to ask if these predictions were accurate, what we have learned, and, perhaps, what’s coming next.” – says Matthew Heusser from TechRepublic.
