To many people, DevOps is solely about automation. Automation is a huge part of the DevOps process, but there are many other aspects to consider. I’ll be talking about how and why DevOps is important to me, and how automation is a part of each of our DevOps steps. We’ll discuss how automation becomes important to each workday by streamlining tasks and leaving time for the more important (and fun) work. We’ll go over why we automate, what we automate, and how we automate. We will have examples of some of the many tools and processes to simplify automation while noting how important choice is in the process. We’ll also talk about some situations in which automation may not be the correct decision, as well as how to deal with folks who may have misgivings. In the end, we’ll realize that the correct combination of tools, code, and our own human creativity will make your work (and maybe personal) life run more smoothly.
