DevOps emphasizes a high degree of automation at all phases of the software development lifecyle. Meanwhile, Genetic Improvement (GI) focuses on the automatic improvement of software artifacts. In this paper, we discuss why we believe that DevOps offers an excellent technical context for easing the adoption of GI techniques by software developers. We also discuss A/B testing as a prominent and clear example of GI taking place in the wild today, albeit one with human-supervised fitness and mutation operators.
