Explaining The Developer Cave

August 15, 2017 Home > Blogs > Explaining The Developer Cave Author: Rob Waller Tags: development, code, dev ops, front end, back end, dba

A couple of weeks ago I did a presentation to the agency on a website my team built. As part of this presentation I decided to explain what the basic development roles are and I came up with the ‘development cave’…

Really this is just a little bit of fun, but it aims to show the unseen nature of many development roles. While a front end dev’s work is exposed to the sunlight, dev-ops is lost in the darkness of the cave…

It also highlights how developers often wander from front end to dev-ops over the course of their career.

At some point you turn around, you can’t see the light anymore and you’re stuck doing dev-ops for people… At least that’s what has happened to me…
