What does a DevOps engineer do?
A DevOps engineer works with software developers, admins and system operators, IT operations staff, and others to supervise and facilitate code releases/deployments on a CI/CD basis.
What is DevOps?
DevOps (Development and Operation’s Collaboration) refers to several practices that encourage software development and IT operations professionals to work together to efficiently design and develop systems software. It strives to develop an efficient relationship between the two departments, resulting in quicker development and releasing of regular product updates. DevOps is a step before deployment, making sure everything is ready for a smooth, error-free release.
