DevOps for (or versus?!) developers

DevOps is the sysadmins' crafty plan to make developers do other people's work, but we're too smart to fall for this simple rebranding trick!

Just think about it: we've written code. It passes the tests. It obviously works, so we can now go and drink/stroll around/play with our kids (underline as appropriate). And then these "visionaries" come (all from the "operations", mind you!) and tell us that it isn't going to work, that we now have to learn Kubernetes and Terraform because suddenly it is our concern?!

In this talk, we'll discuss why developers need (or need not) DevOps. We'll consider arguments made by DevOps visionaries and see whether they are valid. Hopefully, by the end of the talk we'll understand can it really help us developers to deploy better code to production more often, or is it just another scam made up by marketing specialists and evangelists.
