The first time I heard the “DevOps” term was during a conversation with my boss who told me that “DevOps” was the new name for what our Configuration Management team used to do at Corbis.  Initially, I took this literally - that DevOps was about source code control systems, building & deploying code.  But our team did more than that.  We built out and maintained Dev and Test environments.  We did Production DB restores.  We managed third party dependencies, tools and security access. Searching to learn more about DevOps, I discovered a whole community of IT practitioners engaged in the DevOps movement loosely defined as “bringing Development and Operations together”.
