I had a “how to define DevOps” revelation last night: It’s the Wonder Twins! Surely everyone remembers the Wonder Twins. You weren’t born before the 1980s? Oh. Well. Anyway… citing the Wikipedia article on Wonder Twins:
If the two are out of reach of each other, they are unable to activate their powers. […] A rarely-seen aspect of their powers is the ability to break mind control. […] The Wonder Twins have a pet Space Monkey called Gleek who had a useful prehensile tail and who could act as a conduit for the twins to activate their powers should they be out of reach.
Dibs on the name Gleek for a DevOps Practices enabling tool. And your manager should have his trait mentioned above.
Can we move on now?
