What is DevOps
DevOps (development and operations) is a combination of practices that brings together software development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops).
The goal is to shorten the development life cycle and ensure continuous delivery with high software quality. DevOps was founded in Belgium in 2009. DevOps is based on the idea of creating a culture with better collaboration between the teams. It involves many different processes and sets of tools (“toolchains”), such as coding, building, testing, packaging, releasing, configuring, and monitoring.
DevOps teams implement certain agile practices, and are thought by some to contribute to more engaged teams.
