What is DevOps?

DevOps is one of the most mis-used terms I hear today. It is used in the wrong context so many times that I suspect that by next year it’s definition will cement in a common understanding that is yet to form (and different to how we now perceive it). To prepare for this; I will lay out what I think it should be.

Wikipedia’s definition says it best (simplified by me):

DevOps is a methodology that stresses communication, collaboration and integration between software developers and operational IT professionals.
