DevOps is now the most prevalent software development methodology in use. Since 2009, it has spread beyond development teams into other functional areas. One of the earlier DevOps extensions was into DevTestOps, which emphasized continuous testing throughout the software development lifecycle. This was followed several years later by the emergence of QAOps, which built on that model with a focus on improved quality assurance (QA). At first glance, these terms refer to the same methodology. But when you dig deeper, QAOps represents a significant departure from the purpose and process of DevOps. Let's explore.

When the expenditure of resources goes beyond a certain level, the activities are jettisoned or otherwise given the short shrift. Actually, getting code in place is viewed as the only evidence of true progress.

Most times, if asked, I will rattle off, without hesitation, a list of ways AI is being applied along with all the ways it can go wrong. You may also get bit of a diatribe about why speaking of AI in the royal sense (i.e., "the AI") is always a bad idea. It's practically a (bad) party trick. Yet recently, when asked to characterize the primary ethical issues in AI, I had a perfect moment of mental blankness. It was an uncomfortable and instructive moment on many fronts.
