You’ve heard of the term “DevOps.” You might even be a little annoyed with its ever-increasing appearance in conversations on the web. 

Especially when the conversations are led by a “Ninja” or “Rock star.”  But when broken into its three components--culture, process, and tooling—it becomes obvious that the processes of DevOps serve to benefit all IT and development organizations.

Let’s face it: The process of deploying new SharePoint applications is riddled with issues.  It’s slow, and sometimes simply avoided for that reason alone. Thus end-users are missing out, and IT is being blamed for unsuccessful SharePoint.

I’d like to show you some ways to introduce DevOps-like processes for SharePoint application development without having to become a “Ninja” or a “Rock star.”
