Join us at Stack Overflow as we talk about DevOps.
DevOps means something different to different people. It is one of those words that gets pulled in many directions by everyone trying to sell something - sometimes to such an extreme that it becomes meaningless because it has been stretched to encompass everything.

We can think of DevOps as the evolution of the revolution that started when our own processes became the main obstacle affecting our ability to deliver results and respond quickly to the changes in the market.

We will define and examine some of the key components of DevOps and discuss ways to adapt and implement DevOps in the traditional Linux infrastructure.

We will also discuss career tracks and learning resources for those interested in becoming Infrastructure and DevOps practitioners.
