Storage, network and computational resources are becoming API driven. Configuration management tools provide another level of automation and semantics to the systems. As these tools evolve the exercise of building systems looks more and more like software development. Further, when developing web applications, the application is the infrastructure. If the servers are down, there is no application. The value of the application is tied to the systems. Treating the systems and application holistically, encouraging communication and collaboration between dev and ops is the path to true artisanal retro-futurism ⊗ team-scale anarcho-syndicalism.
