DEV Community


Discussion on: Are you an Ops Eng or SRE? Do you feel excluded by the term 'developers'?

Doesn't this suggest the rather condescending idea that ops is a silver medal for would-be developers who didn't make the cut?

Yeah that’s definitely my concern, implying that people who have forgotten more than I’ll ever know about Linux are somehow second place to people who write code.

It’s patently untrue! I’m curious if an ops person feels like “developers” excludes them.
