"Devops", "devops", or "DevOps"?
We have had many discussions over the capitalization(or lack thereof) of the term "devops", A simple online poll showed overwhelming support for "DevOps". We also found a focus on the "Dev" and "Ops" within organizations, This has lead to the creation of "DevSecOps" and "DevQAOps", as "DevOps" implies an exclusivity of just "Dev" and "Ops".
Ultimately, this is why we've chosen "devops" - it reflects the original hashtag on Twitter used to connect people who want to help change conversations from *us versus them* to *enabling the business* with sustainable work practices that focus on people.
Successful projects require input, effort, insight, and collaboration from people across the organization; the problems inherent in your organization may not be limited to just developers and operations team. We have deliberately chosen to use lowercase "devops" throughout the text of this book to reflect our view that this is an inclusive movement, not an exclusive one.
