Ops to Dev - What to bring, what to leave

As student Richard Feynman had an unorthodox approach to mathematics. Later he would frequently stun his famous and well established colleagues — simply by using tools from a different box.

We have very different tools — and methods in Dev & Ops. Much of DevOps has been to transfer methods and tools from Dev to Ops. But coming from Ops, I’d like to think that there are things Devs can learn from their Ops colleagues.

In this talk I’d like to talk about what Ops folk can bring to a Dev position, and what habits we best leave behind.
