It's time for a shout out to DevOps influencers

The power list: Top 20 social influencers in DevOps 2019

JAXenter Editorial Team
Top 20 DevOps influencers 2019

Who are the most influential DevOps people in the Twittersphere? After analyzing thousands of accounts, we created a list of people that every DevOps enthusiast or pro should be following.

All influential people have something in common: they can spread ideas faster and better than anyone else. We are aware that following these people has a handful of perks, including staying on top of the latest news and trends. Therefore, we decided to concoct a list of Twitter accounts all DevOps fans should follow.

The analysis ranks the top accounts in accordance with their social influence, although interestingly enough, not all household names of DevOps evangelists are on the list. Moreover, the list does not in any way rank a person’s character, skill set or talent; it reflects her/his impact on Twitter from an algorithmic perspective.

If you think we have missed you or any DevOps rockstar you know, drop us a line here. Nevertheless, we are very proud of the list that we came up with.

Congratulations to all influencers who made it into our top 20 list!

DevOps royalty

This year, we decided to include the godfathers of DevOps, what we like to call DevOps royalty. These accounts belong to the people who have put DevOps on the map. You’ll find them here!


We first generated a list of twenty thousand DevOps-related Twitter accounts (including all accounts that contain the keyword DevOps in their bio or in any of their tweets.) To score the account and rank them accordingly, we analyzed their social authority and reach using two key metrics: MozRank and Kred.

For more details about this year’s top DevOps influencers, check out the JAX DevOps blog.
