Beginning DevOps

This is the opening story that had been percolating from years of experience, and it talks about how an organization was brought together and empowered to rapidly deliver and run new services independently and safely.

It had been embarrassing to talk about the approaches we were using, since it all seemed like common sense at the time, and something that probably everyone was already doing.
