Ops is maintenance. You can't dev while doing ops.

So, one is paying dev to do ops, wasting money where development takes a backseat to maintenance. I spent years as a dev cleaning up mistakes of rockstar programmer (Hi Ralph!), got fired for the effort and had to sign a contract that the rockstar wasn't to blame. Haven't touched ops since that day. If the software complete, then maintenance shouldn't require a dev in the first place. If it does, you're wasting money.

If you can't afford ops, you can't afford dev. Go buy a lottery ticket. If you want dev, you pay for it, without them doing ops (or support, we had that discussion already)

How about DevOpSales? If you want to combine jobs you do not understand, why stop at two? DevOpsManagement will never be a thing, but what about DevOpsCleanToilets? Smile | :)

How about just blaming us for all that happens and taking all the credits for the good stuff? Aw, wait.. Hi Ralph! Big Grin | :-D
