How to discover your DevOps catalyst

Here are a few words of wisdom that might be enough to spur your breakthrough in the DevOps journey.

Here’s another fun proof for all math geeks.

In my last blog post, I described how a false math proof “1+1=3” embodies the motivation for realizing DevOps by desiring more for less.

In this journey, the start can feel exhilarating, especially since “knowing is half the battle” but ultimately this “n stage” process will prove disastrous for the unprepared as seen in the diagram below.
