How would you describe the role and responsibilities of a DevOps engineer in just a few sentences? I appreciate there are many ways to see the role, so I guess I'm most interested in how you see the role and what you like to do!

DevOps Engineer is a kind of role, can act as a enabler and integrator between Dev, QA and Management with the introduction of Agile and Continuous Integration and Delivery.  DevOps engineer cannot alone implement the DevOps practice in a project. He has to be skilled full person with the information about process involved in software development from start to end. He also needs to have understanding about all the stakeholders and their responsibilities in their project thus integration of the process and team can be done at greater speed. The Role of the DevOps engineer is very much a INTEGRATOR for various tools, process and team which should bring a value as follows;

·         Reduce risks

·         Reduce repetitive manual processes

·         Generate deployable software at any time and at any place

·         Enable better project visibility

·         Establish greater confidence in the software product from the development team

·         CI as a Centerpiece for Quality

DevOps engineer has to enable a platform and build eco system in which any team can accommodate with the new process without any fear of impacting the deliverables quality and integrity of the team.

Not all projects require a Continuous Delivery or Deployment process thus reaching to a DevOps level is conditional. My Approach would be based on the understanding about the delivery expectation of the software product first and then work on a model which can deliver the product as expected.


2 - A bit more speculative - if there are no restrictions from the business, the choice of technology or cost, what does your ideal development, testing and deployment process look like from writing code to having it in production? Feel free to share any tools or services you also think can help here.

In short, I would like to have a tool sets and associated process for ideal development, testing and deployment process as below;



Process

 

Note – DevOpsis not about implementing a best tools, it’s all about a process and culture. Process and Culture is not at all dependent on any tools. Yes, few good tools can implement a process faster.

I would start working on following process.

Continuous Integration

·         Continuous Learning

·         Continuous Automated Build

·         Continuous Unit Testing

·         Continuous Inspection

o    API Documentation

o    Software Metrics

o    Duplicate Code

o    Coding Standard Violations

o    Result Aggregation

o    Complete Build Script

·         Continuous Automated Testing

·         Continuous Coverage

Continuous Delivery

Continuous Deployment

Apart from the mentioned above, Following are the essential to successful software development:

1.    Identify and store artifacts in a secure repository.

2.    Control and audit changes to artifacts.

3.    Organize versioned artifacts into versioned components.

4.    Organize versioned components and subsystems into versioned subsystems.

5.    Create baselines at project milestones.

6.    Record and track requests for change.

7.    Organize and integrate consistent sets of versions using activities.

8.    Maintain stable and consistent workspaces.

9.    Support concurrent changes to artifacts and components.

10.Integrate early and often.

11.Ensure reproducibility of software builds


3 - How do you define agile software development? And as a DevOps, how do you believe you can support it?

 

Agile software development is very large topic to be discussed. The purpose of the agile to make the division of tasks into short phases of work and frequent reassessment and adaptation of plans. Let me define Agile DevOps which is nothing but able to move the phases of configuration management mainly the build and testing quickly and easily for immediate feedback of the status of the current development of the software.

Agile methodologies are ultra-focused on quality through their use of concepts like test-driven design (TDD), refactoring, close customer collaboration, pair programming, etc. They are also about effective communication and knowledge sharing in a way that relies more on rapid feedback-cycles of face-to-face dialogue than on static knowledge captured in large formal documents that attempt to complete all the requirements before coding begins.

Question over, how can I support it to enable the Agile Development. My answer would be to reaching the true CI level first. This image can illustrate some of the visualization of my mind.
