DevOps Practice and Process

DevOps Practice and Process (11)

These days in software industry one word is high in trend and that is "DevOps". Industry experts define DevOps either as a "culture" or "methodology". But when organizations and companies looking for DevOps expert for their projects or organizations they post job ad like this “Hiring or Looking” for "DevOps Engineer" or "DevOps Architect". So we can say DevOps is a culture and methodology but it's a "Role" too.

 

Today DevOps is reforming the software industry. DevOps integrates developers and operation teams in order to improve collaboration and productivity by automation infrastructure, automating workflows and continuously application performance. These days almost all IT organizations are executing DevOps in their software development process from initial product planning stage to security assurance to quality to user’s feedback. They implementing it because it gives them technical and business benefits. It gives them to deploy code more frequently with less failure rates. By implementing DevOps organizations can provide continuous delivery of software’s with less complex problems to fix and faster solutions of the problems which ultimately means faster delivery of the features, more stable operating environments and they can have more time to add value rather than spending time on fixing and maintaining. This is the reason organizations wants to hire DevOps engineers without wasting any time.

 

So, let’s see who can become a DevOps engineer.

 

·         Anyone who is in software development or system operations can become a DevOps engineer.

 

Yes, you read it write, to become a DevOps engineer you does not need educational and formal career track. Either developers who are interested in network operations and deployments or system Admins who have an enthusiasm for scripting and coding, and move into the development side where they can enhance the planning of test and organizations they all can become a DevOps engineers.

Now, let’s check the skills a DevOps engineer should have:-

·         Knowledge of coding and scripting.

·         Experienced with systems and IT operations

·         Should be comfortable with frequent, incremental code testing and deployment and should be able to adapt ever changing environment.

·         Strong grasp of automation tools

·         They should have skills of Data management.

·         A strong emphasis on business results.

·         Ability to work in team and make them all work together.

·         Should be comfortable with collaboration, communication and reaching ability beyond functional areas.

·         Linux or Windows or Hybrid command line knowledge

·         Must be able to understand and utilize a wide variety of open source technologies and tools.

Now let’s look on the process to become a DevOps engineer.

One who accomplishes the thorough necessities to end up distinctly a DevOps engineer can hope to be enormously rewarded. It's never been a superior or more gainful time to consider DevOps as a profession way or a career change.

 

One thing is for sure that DevOps is come here to stay and if you wants to become a DevOps engineer than you must need to enhance above mentioned skills. Remember that DevOps is less about doing things in a specific way, and more about advancing the business and giving it a more grounded innovative favorable position.

Off course Slack is market leader in terms team collaboration and Chat but here are the list of 4 open source alternatives to Slack for team collaboration and Chat.

Slack 
Slack offers a lot of IRC-like features: persistent chat rooms (channels) organized by topic, as well as private groups and direct messaging (again, historically based on IRC).[14] All content inside Slack is searchable, including files, conversations, and people. Slack integrates with a large number of third-party services and supports community-built integrations. Major integrations include services such as Google Drive, Trello, Dropbox, Box, Heroku, Crashlytics, GitHub, Runscope and Zendesk. In December 2015, Slack announced their app directory, consisting of over 150 integrations that users can install.[21] Users can add emoji buttons to their messages, which other users can then click on to express their reactions to messages.

IRC
Internet Relay Chat, or IRC, is a protocol which dates back to the late 1980s. Since it's been around so long, there are numerous open source implementations on both the client and the server side.
 
Coming with its age, however, are numerous drawbacks. It lacks many features one might expect in a modern chat client, from security to identity management to even just being able to easily transmit non-text components, like images, files, or emoticons (the latter might be seen as a plus to some, however). Some features have been implemented after-the-fact through bot services, including nickname management, logging, and other features, but these vary from server to server.
 
IRC does still have some things going for it, though. It's nearly universal, and clients are available for basically every platform out there. Though the command-driven interface isn't necessarily intuitive for beginners, many clients re-implement commands through a GUI. And if you're doing upstream open source development, there's a good chance you're already hanging out in IRC anyway, so adding a team server might be a path of least resistance.

OpenStack

OpenStack is a free and open-source cloud-computing software platform.[2] Users primarily deploy it as an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). The technology consists of a group of interrelated projects that control pools of processing, storage, and networking resources throughout a data center—which users manage through a web-based dashboard, through command-line tools, or through a RESTful API. OpenStack.org released it under the terms of the Apache License.

CloudStack

CloudStack is an open source cloud computing software for creating, managing, and deploying infrastructure cloud services. It uses existing hypervisors such as KVM, VMware vSphere, and XenServer/XCP for virtualization. In addition to its own API, CloudStack also supports the Amazon Web Services (AWS) API and the Open Cloud Computing Interface from the Open Grid Forum.
