Know your user

When we create a (web) application the GUI must be responsive on every platform. All kinds of frameworks and scripts help us to achieve the best experience on every device. But what about operations? Do they get the best experience?

Management of the application is programmed on forms with import buttons and security checks. No automation, no reuse of modules, no real bulk operations and a Change Request when the import format changes. We end up with a tool that costs to much and no user satisfaction.

powershellThe main tool in operations is powershell. We should embrace this in our DEVOPS thinking. You can offer more functionality in the module, move the import/file format out-of-scope and use the automation yourself for continuous deployment.

Create a powershell module for the management of your application and show you know your user.

Working in a DevOps team is the best thing that happened to me. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
