I work at a large enterprise company and for a while I was part of the DevOps team as a software engineer.

Some of our goals included:

   - Building the continuous integration/delivery pipeline
   - Moving codebases from one source control system to another
   - Creating programs/systems to automate tagging of builds
   - Automating the deployment processes of multiple applications onto non-production servers
   - Implementing and maintaining the functional testing frameworks and server grids

The more I look at these goals, the more I realize that the developers who work on feature delivery should not worry about these anyway. So I disagree that DevOps is killing the developer. In fact, DevOps is helping the developers focus on what's important.
