Humans of DevOps

Humans of DevOps is a series that the DevOps Institute initiated to capture a rare glimpse into the minds of DevOps people throughout our unique space.

A strong emphasis on the technical and strategic sides of DevOps has left a void in one of the most important factors that drive transformation: people. Every DevOps practitioner has a story, and it is our intent to tell this story to a wildly diverse DevOps community - to interest, uncover, and expose the backgrounds that make us different, and the commonalities that band us together.

Are you a Human of DevOps with thoughts to share? We would love to tell your story. Reach out to us at humansofdevops@devopsinstitute.com.

Humans of DevOps is a series that we have initiated to capture a rare glimpse into the minds of DevOps people throughout our unique space. Join our Continuous Learning Community for free today.
