So you've probably heard the buzz around two terms in DevOps: Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD). You probably also have heard about things like Ansible and Docker and Kubernetes and how they relate to CI/CD and DevOps and are completely confused about how they apply to the real work that you are doing on your IBM i today._x000D_ _x000D_ The answer is that CI/CD concepts are completely relevant to what you do, but some of the tooling that you've probably heard about (Docker/Kubernetes) really don't apply; however, since IBM acquired RedHat a little more than a year ago, some of that has changed (specifically in relation to Ansible)._x000D_ _x000D_ Learn about DevOps tooling in general (with a special nod to Ansible) but most importantly, this presentation should help to convince you that DevOps is not a passing fad that is going to take resources away from your "real" projects; rather, it is a fundamental shift that will make development faster, more efficient, more responsive, and (most importantly, to many) less costly with minimal investment.
