DevOps glossary

[Dev·ops glos·sa·ry]

noun, plural
  1. DevOps encompasses a lot of technologies, tools, terms, abbreviations, and abstractions. To make this easier to learn, I’m including this glossary, which will be a constant work in progress and may include terms not explicitly discussed in this workshop. If something is missing, please open a GitHub issue and I’ll add it!

    In some cases, a term may have multiple meanings. I’ll do my best to encompass the breadth of a term’s meaning within the context of DevOps, but when in doubt, assume that it has a particular meaning specific to this workshop.
