In today’s fast pacing development phase, DevOps is the glue that stabilises and eventually accelerates the work done to the user. Traditional engineering practices involved different teams’ duties throughout the software development and release cycle. Most of the process in this release pipeline was done manually, creating friction between the processes and teams. The DevOps movement has brought teams together and automated many processes. This has helped reduce the waiting time for release.
Additionally, continuous DevOps feedback helps organisations quickly innovate, fix bugs, and change functionality. The less we have manually touched the process, the better we get for automation. This demands the team’s understanding of communication, documenting, and standardising the process. In an ideal world, the code must pass all the tests to be automatically moved to production without manual intervention to achieve continuous deployment. So if a developer commit has no issues, it directly goes to production. With all the continuity promises, the goal is not to become faster but better. Better in understanding the user’s needs and, therefore, as a result, better in acceptance and quality.
