The world is changing fast around us and so is the technology. In our case we are heading into a large project that might take more than a year for an Internet facing Solution. Taking a mixed team (strong engineering focus, small amount of experienced Developers, some external Developers and Testers) on the route to DevOps is a multi-step process.
