1) What’s your preferred definition of DevOps?

Participating together in the entire service lifecycle, from design through the development process to production support. 

2) When people ‘do’ DevOps, what’s the most common mistake you see them make?

People (or companies) believe that DevOps is the silver bullet to reduce their technical debt. 
Obviously DevOps can figure it out.

3) How do you recommend an organisation new to DevOps start?

Organisations should reduce their technical debt (refactoring their code, increasing the coverage of unit test, make release very often and working with TDD) before starting DevOps 

4) What’s your prediction for what DevOps will look like in 2020?

In 2020 DevOps will be part of the standard of good development in the majority of Agile companies. 

5) Where do you like to go to get a DevOps hit?

I talk to colleagues
