DevOps is a software development approach that combines development (Dev) and operations (Ops) teams, aiming to improve collaboration and streamline the software delivery process. It emphasizes automation, continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD), and a culture of shared responsibility. DevOps focuses on breaking down silos between development and operations, enabling faster and more frequent software releases while ensuring stability and reliability. It encourages the use of tools and practices like version control, infrastructure as code, and automated testing to achieve faster feedback loops and reduce manual errors. By integrating development and operations, DevOps enables organizations to deliver high-quality software products more efficiently, adapt to changing requirements, and enhance overall business agility.
