Let's set aside the buzzwords for a moment and have an honest discussion about DevOps. There is the idea of putting more Dev into Ops, but just as crucial (if not more crucial) is getting your Devs to think more like Ops. Most developers have little to no experience dealing with production environments, and helping them add value to DevOps efforts can be difficult. This talk will cover practical ways of mentoring Devs into more DevOps skills and responsibilities. Ultimately, the goal is to help your Devs gain the skills leading to better production health, application performance and uptime. Of course, we'll also consider how SaltStack can help.
