Ch 8. On DevOps

In this chapter, we will cover :

0. Introduction

As the industry matures, developers' concerns are poised to move towards dealing with operations of server infrastructure rather than development itself. The reason is simple and clear, it's simply more painful to deal with server operation. I am not saying AI programmer will take away your job, but there are lots of resources out there to help you build a software with such as frameworks, libraries, templates, best practices of all sorts and so on. Not to mention, IDEs on steroid are getting better all the time that guide you for the degree to which is foolproof. It just takes a single fool to build a great software these days. (Forgive me!)

However, something people underestimated at first sight turned out to be the most stressful experiences; Set the servers up and running. (and maintain it!) Something you thought the last simple step for your development project turned out to be the separate portion of substantial workloads that needs to be taken care of from the beginning of the project. Now, that's where DevOps comes in.
