Developer and operator personas are often viewed as separate, but the truth on the ground is actually far more mixed. Developers often operate their own software, and operators often explore software to find and fix bugs. Brendan Burns covers this overlap, explaining how to build tooling and approaches that enable developers and operators to quickly switch or blend between the personas.
