The idea behind DevOps has not changed over time. If you write a code, you are responsible for it. You just don’t throw it across the wall for someone else to take care of it. “You are implicitly responsible for running that code, for operationalizing it for production and for handling things like security,” says Austin Parker, Head of Developer Relations at Lightstep. “DevOps is about how we bring these development teams, developers, into a place where they can move faster.”
