DevOps is the need today.
Doing DevOps the right way starts with the right thinking approach. Figuring out the critical processes that you can automate easily.

Even though DevOps may start with the culture but ultimately you need tools to make things work.

I agree with you, bash is the best tool, but IMO it requires too much time to build it and maintain it so I prefer k8s/terraform so I can build a great infrastructure by writing (maybe not that simple) config files.

 

You added AWS as a devops tool, so I'd like to add Google Cloud. I've been using AWS for the past years, but looking at Google Cloud and its k8s product, it looks simpler and more effective. Have you tried it already? I'm considering doing a side project just to test it.

 

kubeadm and kops are good tools to set up a k8 cluster easily.
Self plug for github.com/pushthat/mssh that I use every days to connect to my servers.
Thanks for monit :)

we deploy Java web services and all of our dependencies are either manually pushed from build server or deployed by outside teams when they need to.

 

Is Slack a dev ops tool? I would add Circle CI to the list.

 

yes, because you can integrate slack with other tools and then trigger stuff using slack, get status and reports using slack, etc. People call that ChatOps.

 
 

Yes, I consider Slack as a DevOps tool. Ya, you can say Circle CI too:)

 

How come AWS become DevOps tool?

 

I have problems when I come into this topic in interviews. My applications are all built and deployed via Bash, but then hiring people seem to look down on you for not having fancy tools.

 

StatusGator - Get notified when a third-party service or API is down.
DeployPlace - Deploy your applications from git or CI in minutes.

 

I use the CTO.ai platform to bring my startup's DevOps workflows into Slack to improve observability and reduce context switching. I'm in Slack all day, so this made my life so much easier.
