In today’s world, the roles of DevOps and engineer have been highly intertwined. We believe all engineers need to be trained and proficient in DevOps just as all DevOps need to be trained as software engineers. In that way, the interplay between the two roles becomes more of team sport with comradery rather than a source of tension. We believe in automation and tools to do the boring mundane work, while we put our minds to more useful, fun and challenging tasks.
