“DevOps is the union of people, process, and products to enable continuous delivery of value to our end users.”—Donovan Brown in the book, “DevOps on the Microsoft Stack” (Wouter de Kort, 2016).
Every DevOps journey begins with an idea that you want to turn into a solution based on a culture of learning and continuous delivery of value.
