What is DevOps?
DevOps has become a word used all over the technology and software development sector that means a lot of things. In short, DevOps is a set of practices that enable software developers and ops teams to automate and integrate processes in order to build, test, and release software faster and more reliably. The term was formed by combining the words “development” and “operations” which ultimately signifies a cultural shift that bridges the gap between development and operations teams.
