from Ops import Dev

Slides for a talk given at MadPUG as a 101 on Operational thinking for developers. Slides are likely of questionable use without talk content.

  1. That’s right, I’m telling you that most sysadmins are doing

    more than just typing commands into a terminal and writing shell scripts.
  2. “But, Josh, do we need to do Ops if we

    run our application on a PaaS like Heroku?”
  3. NoOps is kind of a misnomer. It’s less that nobody

    does Ops, and more that everybody is responsible for aspects of that work.
  4. At the end of the day, if everyone your service

    touches is happy with how things are working, you’re doing alright.
  5. In lieu of trying to cover an entire field in

    a short span, how about you ask me questions about what you want to know and I’ll answer them as best I can.
