You’d had to be remotely remote, if you didn’t notice the explosion of DevOps as well as DevSecOps over the years. With it’s increased popularity there has been a lot of questions asked, questions like, “what really is DevOps?”. This event was targeted at introducing DevOps to Babcock Varsity Ingressive Community, highlighting it’s importance, acquainted tools and services plus resources to kick start their DevOps career.
