The DevOps practices are a set of practices that aim to shorten the application development life cycle and provide continuous delivery of high quality software, by bringing development (Dev) and operations (Ops) closer together. Key DevOps principles include shared ownership, automation, and short feedback cycles. As such, the DevOps practices are complementary to the principles of Agile software development. Hire an experienced DevOps consultant to help implement or improve the DevOps culture in your organization.
Reduce the cost, time, and risk of introducing changes to your software by ensuring that your software can be safely released to production at any time. I have many years experience implementing continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment pipelines using commonly used tools such as GitHub Actions and GitLab CI, and I can help you implement these practices in your organization.
Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is the practice of managing (cloud) infrastructure resources such as servers, load balancers and databases with configuration files which can be tracked in a version control system such as Git, just like your application source code. This allows you to build and manage your infrastructure in a consistent and repeatable way, keep a history of changes, and review changes before they are applied. Having experience with common IaC tools such as Terraform and Ansible, I can help you introduce them in your team or organization.
Having many years experience working with Docker (both in development and in production) I can help you implement Docker in your development process, choose the right container orchestration tool (such as Kubernetes or Docker Swarm) for your situation, optimize your Docker images, and automate deployments to your production environment.
