Does leading or engaging in DevOps a career booster? Gene Kim, author of The Phoenix Project and leading DevOps proponent, seems to think so. In a recent interview with TechBeacon's Mike Perrow, Kim notes that of "the nearly 100 speakers at DevOps Enterprise Summits over the last two years, about one in three have been promoted." Kim suggests that the reason these individuals have been promoted is because they "have created something of incredible value" to their organizations, and this has been noticed. There's an acknowledgement that this value extends well beyond the confines of IT departments.

Katherine is co-author, along with Jennifer Davis, of O'Reilly Media's Effective DevOps, and is presenting on the topic of "Building bridges with DevOps" at Velocity New York in September. We recently sat down to discuss what it's like when an organization adopts DevOps, and how that transition can be improved. Here are some highlights from our conversation. One of the big issues I've seen is organizations that look to "DevOps" as a solution without a clear understanding of what problems they are trying to solve. DevOps is not a magical one-size-fits-all panacea that can be applied the same way to every organization--what works for Etsy is not what will work for Netflix is not what will solve problems at Chef and so on and so forth.
