Weekly Top 10: DevOps Meme Party

Written by: Electric Bee

Are you a business leader looking to drive an IT transformation within your own company? Are you a software engineer working on the next greatest app? No matter your role - development or operations - the highs and lows associated with software delivery can be exhausting invigorating motivating devastating … emotional .
At the first sign of a software delivery problem, teams traditionally would name the other as a scapegoat. These days, they must not only learn to work together but also understand, appreciate and be mindful of “the other side’s” needs and challenges. To cope with (or process ) these emotions, modern software development has inspired a treasure trove of hilarious content to inspire us on our DevOps journey.
That’s why @DOESsummit posed a recent request in the weekly #DOES15 Twitter contest to ask participants to share theirfavorite DevOps meme or gif.
All respondents using #DOES15 are now eligible to win a signed edition of Gene Kim’s (@RealGeneKim ) The Phoenix Project and be entered for a chance to win a free pass to the second annual DevOps Enterprise Summit (DOES15) , co-hosted by CloudBees and IT Revolution.
This week’s competition was fierce -ly hilarious. Check out our top picks from the contest below.

Make us laugh! Share your favorite #DevOps meme/gif today with #DOES15 to be entered to win! http://t.co/XTbp8vXnJQ pic.twitter.com/ahZBIDRkCd
