DevOps Paradox

By: Viktor Farcic

Overview of this book

DevOps promises to break down silos, uniting organizations to deliver high quality output in a cross-functional way. In reality it often results in confusion and new silos: pockets of DevOps practitioners fight the status quo, senior decision-makers demand DevOps paint jobs without committing to true change. Even a clear definition of what DevOps is remains elusive. In DevOps Paradox, top DevOps consultants, industry leaders, and founders reveal their own approaches to all aspects of DevOps implementation and operation. Surround yourself with expert DevOps advisors. Viktor Farcic draws on experts from across the industry to discuss how to introduce DevOps to chaotic organizations, align incentives between teams, and make use of the latest tools and techniques. With each expert offering their own opinions on what DevOps is and how to make it work, you will be able to form your own informed view of the importance and value of DevOps as we enter a new decade. If you want to see how real DevOps experts address the challenges and resolve the paradoxes, this book is for you.

People will be able to ask questions like: "Well, this looks like an opportunity for a SQL injection. Have you thought about that?"

A pet peeve of mine is that SQL injection still exists because that question isn't asked in development. Developers are not incentivized to worry about security, and they're too far underwater to think about that in addition to just getting the feature out the door. That has to change, and that will radically alter security. DevSecOps is a good maturing DevOps, where you're shifting left. I think that term is going to be subsumed...
