One of the things that I think about DevOps is that it’s really hard to focus on the hard things that create friction in your process. Most of us want to move faster, and tackle the easy things to automate, the easy things to fix. We want to trust developers to move quickly and pick those items that get in their way.
They do, but they often stop before the database. Or they start to try and find ways to use a different database (ugh). Or they just start putting strange data into existing columns to get things done.
The database matters, and I’ll be talking about why.
I’m doing a webinar on Feb 6 for 30 minutes to talk about the database in DevOps. You can register here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3005019550714731265?source=KB
