DevOps culture at octree
Experts at your business's service.
Since it’s beginnings, Octree created and nurtured DevOps culture. This led our company to become one of the culture’s stakeholders in Geneva and its surroundings. Today, tools and processes which are part of DevOps culture enable us to manage all our project’s steps with agility, from conception to delivery into the the final user’s hands.
Simply put, DevOps is the philosophy aiming to break down silos separating the worlds of code development and operational infrastructure. This aims to have all the stakeholders engaged around the same table in order to enable shared learning curves and responsibilities. All of this is made possible with the help of strong agile processes alongside the use of modern tools in Cloud computing.
Let humans be human and automate everything else.
DevOps sponsors a multitude of benefits, but among those one stands out: recurrent tasks automation. Tests, deployments, alerts, server watch, all enable developers to focus on their purpose: to write efficient, smart, beautiful code.
Agreeably, machines are great at taking care of dull tasks. By using them to automate a maximum of repetitive work, humans can be supported equally in return: creation, research, associative thinking, communication and sharing experiences are human strengths which aren’t likely to be stolen from us by machines any time soon.
Our DevOps culture aims to streamline and dispatch tasks between human and machine in order to support both in what they do best. The result is enabling us to become a stronger team, better coders, take time to share with our clients, and above all be more human at work.
