It will be expected that all custom developed python scripts, APIs, and other processes be uplifted to python 3. The upgrade procedure will be automated where possible and use a variety of automation tools depending on use case including but not limited to BladeLogic, Ansible, SCCM, and CFT/Bootstrap. Development will follow a DevOps model and strong reliance on CI/CD using Git as a repository.
