The Linux keyboard driver
Use loadkeys to change the code produced by the BackSpace key from Delete to BackSpace:
% loadkeys keycode 14 = BackSpace
Assign the string “emacs\n” to the function key F12, and “rm *~\n” to Shift-F12 (the keycode 88 was found using showkey; the F66 is a random unused function key symbol):
% loadkeys keycode 88 = F12 shift keycode 88 = F66 string F12 = "emacs\n" string F66 = "rm *~\n"
Create the compose combination that will compose | and S into $:
% loadkeys compose '|' 'S' to '$' compose 'S' '|' to '$'
Reset to some default state:
% loadkeys -d
After the above handling, the obtained character(s) are put in the raw tty queue. Depending on the mode of the tty, they will be processed and transferred to the cooked tty queue. (Don't confuse raw mode as stty knows it, with the raw scancode mode discussed above.) Finally, the application will get them when it does getchar();.

DevOps represents a profound change from the way most IT departments have traditionally worked: from siloed teams and high-anxiety releases to everyone collaborating on uneventful and more frequent releases of higher-quality code. It doesn't matter how large or small an organization is, or even whether it's historically slow moving or risk averse — there are ways to adopt DevOps sanely, and get measurable results in just weeks.
