I couldn't disagree more about his portrayal of DevOps. There are companies misusing any and all paradigms of development. Google "cowboy coding agile" to see what I mean.

When I think of DevOps, I don't think of having everyone know everything. Ops staff have to know enough code to write deployment automation scripts and dev staff need to know enough system administration to step up and help when the monitoring or deployment automation breaks.

It's meant to be a partnership to maintain a system rather than the old practice of throwing code over the wall. It really harms morale to have the developers all enjoying wonderful weekends while ops is on red alert because app changes they don't understand broke everything in production.
