We're DuploCloud and we're a proud sponsor of CodeLand 2022✨

Hello CodeLand 2022!

Whether you're an early-career software developer, you're just learning how to code, OR you've been at it for years, we're really excited to meet you. Thanks for stopping by our digital sponsor booth.

DuploCloud offers a DevSecOps (development, security, and operations) software platform for teams that don’t have dedicated DevOps. We also augment teams that do! The DuploCloud platform automates the provisioning of your application to the cloud (AWS, GCP, Azure), integrating cloud ops, SecOps, and security/compliance with 24x7 monitoring and support.

Here's a bit more about us in video-form 👀

"Explain Like I'm Five" Contest

Because we're all about sharing knowledge with one another and because we're DevOps-obsessed, we wanted to run a mini-contest in the comments below... participate, comment below with an explanation of DevOps that's suitable for a five-year-old!

Our team will share the winning answer on our Twitter profile (be sure to leave your Twitter handle if you'd like to be tagged!). Then, after CodeLand concludes, we'll email you a piece of surprise swag!

Have fun with this challenge and thanks for stopping by our digital booth to learn more about DuploCloud ❤️ You can find us on our website here or on Twitter at @DuploCloud.

We'd love to stay in touch with you after CodeLand concludes! If you'd like to get occasional communications from us, you can share your contact info with us using this form.

Devops is the combination of Development and Operations.

DevOps (a portmanteau of “development” and “operations”) is the combination of practices and tools designed to increase an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services faster than traditional software development processes. This speed enables organizations to better serve their customers and compete more effectively in the market.

Imagine you are an ant. You want to get to the food crumb on the other side of the tablecloth. It will take a long time.
If the tablecloth has tight folds, the distance from the top of one fold to another is something you can get over faster than sticking to the face of the cloth the long way.
DevOps is the process and resources needed (the folds) to get the software one builds (the ant) to the customers (the crumb) faster than before, the long way.

Engineers use tools, and DevOps are their tool-makers!

Great prompt. Excited to see what everyone says.

My to a 5 year old:
DevOps is a way to create useful software fast.

Santa's workshop makes all kinds of toys, and the elves are always trying to make the toys even better. They keep an eye on the problems the toys might cause, too, and if a toy is too dangerous or easily broken, they fix it.

But how do they fix all the toys if Santa's already given them out to children? Well, with Santa's magic, they can make all the changes to a certain type of toy at once, no matter where it is.

Santa makes video games now, too, and he uses a thing called DevOps to help him oversee how those games are made. Just like with the toys, the workshop makes the games, tests them, makes sure they're safe to play with, wraps them up, and sends them out over the internet to the children. If the need comes up, the workshop can send out a quick fix to everyone.

Before he knew about DevOps, Santa struggled a lot with making and deploying video games, but he knew that children would enjoy them and learn from them just as they did with his other toys.

So he went on the internet and learned about things that seemed like complete magic to him before: He learned about the cloud, software development, IT operations, and he figured out how to use the internet to do the same thing that his magic does for all of his other toys.

DevOps/security is the backpack that helps you keep your code from falling apart or being hurt/lost.

Code is your collection of cool toys/stuff.

Coding go BrRrrrrr!!!

I may not be 5 but this explanation was pretty helpful! 😂

When an application is being built, the people who write code (known as the Development team) are concerned with releasing code fast. On the other hand, the people who make the code available to users and operate applications (known as the Operations team) always want to ensure that the application doesn't have errors and is stable. Since they are interested in different things, there is a divide between the two teams.
DevOps bridges the gap or divide between Development and Operations and automates process of releasing quality code fast.

Imagine you're Sonic the Hedgehog or Mario. You find a booster that lets you fly or race or somehow get from A to B faster than without that booster. Maybe even with the power of invisibility or invulnerability. DevOps is that booster for developers.

How did things happen before devops?

  • Create Changes
  • Add or modify features
  • Fix Bugs


  • Create Stability
  • Create and enhance service
  • Monitor / Observability

They worked separately. No idea what dev did and ops doing.

Solution was DevOps.

DevOps is the combination of cultural, practices, and tools that increases an organization's ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity.

DevOps like I'm five:

DevOps is making sure programmers and operations are nice to each other, share, and help each other, rather than them being mad at each other all the time. :D

I appreciate this ELI5 contest. I heard the term DevOps a lot, but I hadn't the slightest idea what it was. Now I know! Great job to everyone!

DevOps is like your body ~ You have to eat healthy, exercise and rest to feel your best everyday! The better you treat your body - The better your body will treat you.

DevOps are like tying your shoelaces. You see, your feet can walk without tying up your shoes, but you get so much more when they are. The feet are nicely snug and safe, and because of that you can focus more on walking, jumping, running, playing and so much more. DevOps are the shoelaces for computer software, helping software be snug so that it can be a really good software.
