DevOps – (Development and Operations) simplified

In this write-up, I have tried to analyses the silent features of DevOps and Will it leads to revolution in IT industry or will turn up another ‘so called’ process improvement on shelf.

The core feature which is attracting industry to give a thought for DevOps is about its basics which is based on professional principles that helps business unit’s smooth collaboration. This basic feature was developed with collaboration of multidisciplinary skill-set people who are comfortable with software development, infrastructure and configuration such as system admin, tester and coder.

The DevOps movement is still in its infancy, but its gathering pace - there are conferences, mailing lists, irc channels, blogs and people to get to know.

Core concept at glance:-

·         It encourage the development of communication skills, understanding of the domain in which the software is being written, and, crucially, a sensitivity and passion for the underlying business, and for ensuring it succeeds.

·         The DevOps culture puts a focus on creating a fast and stable work flow through development and IT operations.  One main goal of DevOps is to deploy features into production quickly and to detect and correct problems when they occur, without disrupting other services.

·         It helps technical people feel empowered and capable of helping in all area. It infuses better reliability and availability, happier clients, faster time to market, and more time to focus the team's energy on core business rather than wasteful administration and firefighting.


DevOps is more of cultural shift in fast moving technology space where dependency and dark spot barrier can be minimized across the project life cycle since the goal of each individual in project is to deliver successful stable product to production. But at the same time it should not blur the identity of programmer as programmer, tester and deployment expert respectively. Operations people can learn development too, but again, nothing beats experience.

It is also important to keep in mind that you can’t force cultural change. It has to start from the bottom up, and it needs breathing room to grow.

It should not been seen as tool to save cost but more of easy, trustworthy flow of knowledge, helping hand across the teams. Using “DevOps” to save money by reducing staff will blow up in your face.

Habits worth considering!!

Habits are essential part of life! I am not sure of any technic to learn habits but what is certain is that “one's life changes, when his habits change.”

Let’s have a look at tiny habits that have potential to contribute to power of changing lives:-

Cultivate a 15 minutes writing habits:-
I know you be wondering what to write, I can remember well! That’s great but still get in this habit by writing, everything can be a starting point: air, water, food, shelter, body or its parts...May be start writing 5 things you are grateful for on daily basis. May be things you are grateful to your wife? If you can come up with 100, that's fine, but 1 is enough. If you can elaborate why you are grateful for that, that's fine, but focus on writing this one thing first. It should be a new thing every day

Try and do ONE of these two activities as fast and hard as you can for 60 seconds:
Sprint   :    A lung busting sprint I'm talking about for 60 seconds
Pushups  :   As many as you can.
If you do this PROPERLY well done. You should be in immense pain by the 60 seconds end.
Do you realise you've just experienced MORE pain in JUST 60 seconds than 95% of the people in your life you will ever meet?

Additional benefits of above activity are:-
High-intensity-training is the most effective fat burning, immune boosting.
Releases Dopa-mine into the brain - the bodies 'feel good chemical'
You will likely find you want to exercise longer - so you'll get healthier still
It'll increase your tolerance for pain - helps with sports, tattoos, exercise, and all else physical [Oops!! possibly Indian journalist can avoid this one]

Breathe correctly:
 Many people do not understand the impact breathing has on physiological and psychological well-being. Think about how shallow your breath becomes when you are stressed.
Most of us breathe into the upper chest, which is not the best way to breathe because it signals the body that we are under stress even when we are not. In turn, shallow breathing activates the sympathetic nervous system (the fight or flight response).
Instead, practice relaxed diaphragmatic breathing, which is a slow and calm movement of your diaphragm, not your upper chest. Diaphragmatic breathing stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which causes the brain to release endorphins which in turn reduces muscle tension and feelings of anxiety.
Deep breathing also oxygenates our blood which keeps our cells in an aerobic state, which then aids in fat loss and increases our energy.

Read books at least 30 minutes a day:-
Books not online contents please. The more you read, the better you write. Reading, especially in long form, can help you to develop your intellectual and deep understanding in a much better way than scanning a 5 minutes 'X way to do Y' kind of news.

Being strategically selfish sometimes.
By that I mean saying "No" to unreasonable requests, and prioritizing your own self-growth and personal development.
As you take care of yourself, your capacity to be a good person and take care of others as well will increase. I am personally confused where I fit to this point really.

Take 10,000 steps daily
"Sitting more than six hours a day greatly increases your risk of an early death. No matter how much you exercise, eat well, avoid smoking, or add other healthy habits, excessive sitting will cause problems."

Some lazy bone around say horse run and it dies in 17-20 years but tortoise leaves for 300 years, I hope you know now why for tortoise at least?

What you gained and lose – by taking a risk.

Risk scares as well as provide courage!

Do you agree?      Well take your time to access & conclude.

Broadly speaking risk are usually taken by two kind of people, One who has nothing to lose and other who has got enough resources to cover the loss.
So what is the risk taking capacity of third kind of people who has got something to defend but not enough to fully let go?

Risk is like double-edge sword it cuts both way to land you on your target quickly but sometime if taken without proper pit-fall analysis it also end up causing enough damage which takes its own time to heal for fresh start.

It is worth taking a risk at least once in life: If you get it right you lead else you can guide

Taking risk aids your portfolios but remember don’t take risk just to accumulate in your portfolios.
Vital points before you start reading inspirational quotes about risk.
  • ·        Ensure or make effort to reduce your risk impact limited to you, It should not be passed on to your loved ones.
  • ·     Taking risk should not be substitute to your normal duties in life towards your friends and family.
  • ·        It’s only your family who will dare to support you in consequences of risk so do listen to them and re certify your plan with them.

Kailyug : How accurate was it predicted during Dwaperyug !!

Once the four Pandavas (except Yudhishthira who was not present) asked Krishna:

"What is Kaliyug and what will happen during Kaliyug?"

Krishna smiled and said "Let me demonstrate to you, the situation of Kaliyuga." He took a bow and four arrows and shot them in four directions and ordered the four Pandavas to go and bring them back.
Each of the four Pandavas went in the four different directions to search for the arrows.
When Arjun picked an arrow, he heard a very sweet voice. He turned around and saw a cuckoo singing in a spellbinding voice but was also eating flesh of a live rabbit which was in great pain. Arjuna was very surprised to see such a gory act by such a divine bird he left the place immediately.
Bhim picked arrow from a place, where five wells were situated. The four wells were surrounding a single well. The four wells were overflowing with very sweet water as if they were not able to hold water and surprisingly the well in the middle of these four overflowing wells was completely empty. Bhima was also puzzled at this sight.
Nakul was returning to the place after picking up the arrow. He stopped at a place where a cow was about to give birth. After giving birth the cow started licking the calf but continued to lick it even after the calf was clean. With great difficulty people were able to separate them and by that time the calf was injured badly. Nakul was puzzled by the behaviour of such a calm animal.
Sahadeva picked arrow which fell near a mountain and saw a big boulder falling. The boulder was crushing the rocks and big trees on its way down, but the same boulder was stopped by a small plant. Sahadeva was also amazed at this sight.

All the Pandavas asked the meaning of these incidents. Krishna smiled and started explaining...
"In Kaliyug, the priests will have very sweet voice and will also have great knowledge but they will exploit devotees the same way cuckoo was doing with rabbit.

In Kaliyug poor will live among rich, those rich will have enormous amount of wealth which will actually overflow but they will not offer a single penny to the poor same as the four wells didn't have a single drop of water for the empty well.

In Kaliyug parents will love their children so much that their love will actually spoil them and will destroy their lives similar to the love shown by cow to her newborn calf.

In Kaliyug people will fall in terms of character like the boulder from the mountain and they will not be stopped by anyone at the end only the name of God will be able to hold them from doom like the little plant held the boulder from further fall."
