Hello and welcome back to the weekly roundup of news and posts from across the DevOps on Azure community.

Every day I see people on places like Twitter try to define exactly what DevOps is. Is it tools? Is it process? I honestly believe DevOps is about people. Putting people in a position to succeed is ultimately putting your business in a stronger position to deliver to customers. By collaborating, educating, and communicating with each other you can come together to achieve these goals. Creating a culture of collaboration will prove beneficial to all and help your technology teams achieve more.

    Thanks,
    but why are you listening Spanish articles. English ones are understandable for almost everyone here, Spanish is reduces such an interesting article to a pretty small amount of readers. I think there are plenty articles about DevSecOps in English available.

      Running it through a translation engine was a low effort. I for myself found it worth.

    But on the other hand, why should I hear you reading Spanish articles. The article is accessible for nearly everyone in here, so Spanish procedure is an intellectual reduction that the article is not as effective as it could be. I think countless articles about DevSecOps in English are at hand. – Sd
