    That may be the case if you try to use the TCS Cloud that they are pushing.

      Understood. So then it reminds me of the job interview where I had to do maths on radio waves hitting a fence. The interviewer silently let me go through the maths - then said I was wrong. I had been assuming a fence was solid - he told me it was composed of posts.

      I suppose I could have asked. But it was clear I was unliked and was never goingto get the job.

      Maybe the interviewer thought OH was too clever and too much of a threat?

        I'm not a programmer so to my limited understandinmg DevOps is simply automation of the common tasks done during thje development cycle that would normally require some non-programmer skills.

        Things like making new systems or VMs, replicating data sets for testing, running automated tests and general other stuff. Stuff that previously needed an infrastructure engineer but now it's automated they're redundant.

          I've seen jobs advertised as DevOps so sounds like the infrastructure engineer has just been replaced.

            DevOps is applying tools to issues such as error log reports, h/w and environmental monitoring outputs and other data sources, looking to highlight things that matter amidst all the dross that modern systems churn out. It also aims to automate stuff like release processes and other repetitive but critical activities, which includes testing, backup processes and a shedload of other stuff.

            Where I part company with what is a worthwhile labour saving process is when people start seeing it (and selling it) as a standalone activity. It is not any such thing, any more than ITIL is a set of fixed processes (that's ISO20000-1, and pretty much pointless outside some CS departments) rather than a working culture with a common vocabulary...
