Samsung recently recalled 2.8 million washers because they were exploding when you put heavy loads in them and ran them at high speed. I had such a washer, and they sent a handyman to my house to fix it. Imagine if they could have fixed that with a software update. There are many barriers to making that happen in reality. With the Internet of Things, with millions of devices at the edge, possibly in remote places with no one around, connected to spotty internet, developing and deploying in these scenarios is complicated. DevOps can help ease the pain. Making the process of creating code that works and getting it out there reliably easier, and then making sure it's working out there and adding value, that's what DevOps focuses on. That's all nice in theory, but how does that work in reality? Well, let me show you.
