Our friend Jay Gordon (@jaydestro) joins us this week to answer the “On Ops Question.”

I’m a system administrator, and DevOps seems scary, how do I get started?

 

 

In his words... “You’ve been manually deploying from that bash script for years...  But what can’t that script do, other than install your app?

Scale! It can’t scale.

 

That’s where DevOps comes in.  It will help to promote scale, availability and communications.

 

No need to be scared, it’s just DevOps
