Is DevOps just the new "cool" term for Extreme Programming?
Recently speaking with a company about doing some coaching work for them. They have decided that to be successful they need to do "DevOps" and want to know what my DevOps experience is. One of the people was even pretty insistent it wasn't "agile".
If you look at the Venn diagram of DevOps, on Wikipedia it's the center of Dev, QA and IT. If you look at the principles of XP, you are doing testing up front and you're doing continuous integration with regular releases to the customer.
Am I missing something? I'm just seeing a new term on concepts that are foundations of XP.
