  1. 2.

    Even bacterias have culture, so: I took some blogs you

    know and love, parsed them and fed a Markov chain text generator, generated sentences... (the only thing I did was add dots and commas) All to see if you're devops for real.
  2. 3.

    Rules: 1. I give you a sentence. 2. You try

    to guess if it's human or computer generated. 3. ??? 4. PROFIT

    elit. Proin nibh augue, suscipit a, scelerisque sed, lacinia in, mi. Cras vel lorem.'' –
  4. 9.

    Answer #3: Real! ''Devops Isn’t a Deliverable - When I

    get done with you, you don’t have a devops. It’s possible that the things we’re working on will bring you closer to a lifestyle and culture that is devops.'' – Bratty Readhead

    Question #7 ''A DevOps culture can be the nucleus of

    a good software development lifecycle''
  6. 18.

    Answer #7: True! ''A DevOps culture can be the nucleus

    of a good software development lifecycle.'' Automation, tooling and cheap access to computing resources have greatly empowered individual engineers on the operations and software development sides of the tech industry.'' – Darryl K. Taft devops-engineers.html
