DevOps Mindset Evangelist

DevOps is a mindset and a culture.
Are you ready for the DevOps mindset?

During my time as Developer, Consultant, Build- & Release Engineer, Release Manager organizing and defining release processes and lately as DevOps Mindset Evangelist, I have learnt, that DevOps is a mindset and a culture and not a job or a job description.

To establish this mindset and this kind of culture you have to know, how the organisation works. How people communicate and interact with each other. Understand how software flows from A to Z. Where are the bottlenecks and where improvements can help ease and spead up the flow.

Of course you can introduce some improvements into the process, with automation, but getting all people on board is essential. A commitment from all stakeholders, from Developers, QA personnel, to the Ops personnel, form Product Owner to Sales and Marketing responsibles is needed, to make DevOps work.

So are you ready for the DevOps mindset and the culture change? Let me help you introduce the DevOps mindset and culture into your organisation. LOOK at my experience and expertise in the DevOps field to help you make it happen.

As a team we can do it!
