In his CloudCafe 18 Podcast John talks about Puppet to Luke and they coin the idea of Devministration
I really like the terminology, so I`m a devministrator, and probably the bigger part of Inuits are Devministrators.
The first stage in becoming a devministrator is using version control, then bugtracking .. etc.
Coming from an era where I was the sysadmin pushing the developers to use version control this sounds really strange to me..
Yes I had to convince developers to use version control, while Luke thinks he needs to convince sysadmins to use version control.
Weird.. other continent, other habits, but the important part is we all use it.
But the big part is that we don't spend our time managing servers, but rather scripting the automation of the management. Learning machines how they should manage our configs and automate.
Like the old Google saying, you have to automate yourself out of a job every 18 months.
Guess that's also what ad Devministrator is.
