Accelerating Towards DevOps
Ben had joined our team as a Cloud admin and had spent the last three years of his professional career managing and administering Cloud platform. Most of this work of his involved him operating on the Cloud using the user interface consoles provided by the Cloud vendors. He seemed to be in a confused state of mind when we talked about locking the access to these user interfaces and operating on Cloud purely using CLIs or by means of writing code to leverage the rich APIs available for those platforms. He was even more surprised when he saw the size of the team which was currently in place to manage the huge scale of Cloud services at our organization.
