Minecraft And DevOps

Richie Lee has an essay comparing Minecraft to DevOps:

Let me be clear about something: If you don’t have your databases in source control, there’s no point in thinking about anything else. Everything else follows on from this point. Getting your code in source control is the absolute starting point of all deployment pipelines. Some people have very strong views about whether to use git or TFS, but frankly I’m less concerned about the SVN of choice and more concerned about whether all code that is deployed is in source control. But the point is there’s no point in fretting about how to use Octopus Deploy if you haven’t got your code in source control.

The morals of this story are to crawl before you walk, and when you do learn to walk, don’t walk on lava.  I like the extended Minecraft metaphor, which sets this post off from many others of its ilk.
