How exactly does that follow?

I'm a "devops engineer", and fully half of the concern around what I do is "how do we make this maintainable and know when maintenance is necessary?".

The death of devops/sysadmins/infrastructure engineers has been greatly exaggerated within the startup scene.

Agreed, though I think it somewhat depends on your definition. Most sysadmins at my clients have been uneasy at the pervasive sort of automation that we like; a lot of it is much more dev-heavy than a "modern" sysadmin (not your graybearded Perl wizard) seems comfortable with. Everybody else? Business is pretty great.

That sentiment has actually been stated? I honestly thought it was on the uptrend...
