(1) Net operating income and netback are non-IFRS measures. Net operating   
income and netback is defined as revenue less operating costs.              
(2) Since ETAP pays all taxes and royalties from its share of production,   
net operating income is effectively after tax to the Company.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
