About

DEVOPSdigest is an online publication and blog that covers DevOps and related technologies and topics. DEVOPSdigest is one of the most popular websites focused on DevOps, committed to providing the latest DevOps industry news 4 days every week, Mon-Thurs.

DEVOPSdigest is more than just an online magazine. It is a community in the DevOps space where analysts and consultants, users and vendors come together to discuss and debate the industry's hot topics, inform and educate each other, and ultimately strengthen and advance DevOps.

DEVOPSdigest does not hire journalists to write stories about DevOps. All blogs posted on DEVOPSdigest are written by members of the DevOps and development community expressing their own ideas and opinions.

All blogs posted on DEVOPSdigest are intended to be objective, vendor-neutral and non-promotional content to educate and enlighten DEVOPSdigest readers.

All blogs posted on DEVOPSdigest are intended to be objective, vendor-neutral and non-promotional content to educate and enlighten DEVOPSdigest readers. DEVOPSdigest strictly controls blog content to ensure it meets this objective. A blog posted on DEVOPSdigest can never be about a company, its brand, products or services — even if that company is a sponsor of DEVOPSdigest. This is what makes DEVOPSdigest unique in the industry, and what attracts thousands of readers every month, from across the global IT spectrum.

In further support of this goal, DEVOPSdigest does not post "sponsored content." Although DEVOPSdigest receives multiple requests every day to post sponsored blogs, many of them not even relating to the topics covered by the site, all requests are refused. DEVOPSdigest sponsors are allowed to include links and hyperlinks within their blog posts on DEVOPSdigest, but the copy of the blogs must remain objective, vendor-neutral and non-promotional, so this is not the same as sponsored content.

DEVOPSdigest is vigorously opposed to the anonymous nature of social media, and consequently the site is designed so no person can make anonymous comments. That is why there are no comment boxes at the end of blogs and other content on DEVOPSdigest. Anyone who wishes to make a comment or statement on DEVOPSdigest must do it with attribution including the author's name, title and company, typically via a blog.

DEVOPSdigest covers the following topics:

■ DevOps

■ DevSecOps

■ Development Processes

■ Development Technology

PUBLICATION SCHEDULE

DEVOPSdigest posts one item of primary content — blog or feature — 3-4 times per week, Monday to Thursday. Consequently, there is often a queue of content waiting to be posted.

In addition, DEVOPSdigest posts 1-5 news items, Monday to Thursday, in the Industry News section.

Other content such as new webinars and white papers are posted regularly, but on no particular schedule.

DEVOPSdigest does not post content on weekends, or on US holidays and certain days around those holidays, including the week of July 4 and two weeks around Christmas/New Years.

APMdigest e-mails — including DEVOPSdigest content — go out twice per month, and the current mailing includes content posted since the last mailing. During July and December, APMdigest may only send one email for that month.

HOT TOPICS

DEVOPSdigest provides "Hot Topics" lists that include every blog and feature posted on DEVOPSdigest about that particular topic. Industry news, webinars, white papers and free tools are not listed on the Hot Topics pages.

Links to all the Hot Topics can be found on every page, at the bottom of the right column.
