Thanks for the insights. We actually don’t have anyone dedicated to help on automation. Each team does it on its own and no one has the time to really generalize it. But I think we should really start doing it!
Be careful when you do so. Genericizing is great, one-size-fits all is dangerous. Id rather see teams write ops code that needs to exist rather than build be forced to design their application around a broken ops model.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
