This issue of Dr. Dobb's Tech Digest contains two articles that explore DevOps. The first highlights an emerging trend of using lightweight containers to standardize dev environments and deployment stacks. The containers, which are smaller than virtual machines, are redefining test and production pipelines and providing an easy way for developers to work easily with ops. They will surely become a standard piece of dev and ops infrastructure going forward.
The second article, a reprint of a piece written by Scott Ambler, gives pointers on what techniques have worked well at companies that have begun rolling out DevOps.
