Agile and DevOps

Agile and DevOps, we can understand it by simple example.

Imagine you're planning a dinner party with friends. Instead of deciding everything at once, you might plan it step by step, being open to changes along the way.

You decide on the basics first - date, guest list, and location. This is like Agile's "sprints" where you focus on small parts of a bigger project.

As you plan, you're open to adjustments. Just like Agile encourages adapting plans as you go, maybe a friend can't make it or you find a better location.

During the party, you might notice some things could be better, like the music or food choice. Agile works similarly; after each sprint (or phase), you get feedback and improve for the next one.

Agile is like planning a gathering step by step, staying flexible, and adapting as needed. DevOps is more like a well-coordinated kitchen where teams collaborate, use efficient tools, and continuously improve their process.

Test Automation and Shift-Left

Test Automation and Shift-Left both are one of the strong piller of Agile and Devops methodology.

We can imagine a test automation as a robot assistant that helps to do our job faster than you could and save our lots of time and effort and Shift-left is planning ahead and gathering supplies and reduce the risks.

Both actually aim to streamline processes, improve quality, and reduce risks in their respective domains.

Serverless

Serverless is just like laundry service πŸ˜€
Where you drop your clothes without worrying about the washing machine, detergent, or timing. 😎

Laundry service ( or cloud provider in devops prospect) will manage the infrastructure and they can scale it accordingly.
If your laundry load increases, the service handles it without you worrying about machine capacity.

Serverless automatically scales based on demand, handling varying workloads seamlessly.

It simplify tasks and allow users to focus more on their core activities without worrying about underlying processes.
