Great work JK. I wonder if such an effort can be packaged and given/sold to engineers with a rule that says, First Operate, Then Develop (FOTD or OpsDev ;) ).

It would be nice if you could shed light on how many humans/hour have been involved in the transformation. A rough estimation works, too.

That's a great point Mohammed. The team started with 8 developers. And after some transfers and people moving on to other workplaces, we finished up with four developers in the team plus an Engineering Manager, Product Manager and part time scrum master. The transformation itself took place as part of the daily work integrating the techniques discussed as part of the day to day.
