In the same way that being able to cook dinner doesn't make me a chef, while it's true that a developer can be a sysadmin, QA or DBA, they won't do a very good job.

To suggest otherwise shows a complete lack of understanding of the nuance of those roles.

As for suggesting that "DevOps" is killing the developer - the only thing "DevOps" is doing is polluting our common language with a term that doesn't actually mean anything concrete. It's perfect consultant speak.
