The current DevOps movement provides several key methodologies and tenants to keep IT operations running in a sustainable fashion. Depending on your perspective, DevOps may be the latest IT fad or a revolution. In looking at DevOps, what does its key tenets offer for IT operations and how do those tenants relate to those of the Bible. Can you take the same approach, working left to right, in small batches to your spiritual life? How about stopping the production line when tests fail? Shared goals and shared pain between ops and development? Continual experimentation? Can repetition and practice lead to mastery? Hopefully this talk will provide an new perspective on how to optimize your IT and spiritual lives.
