This is a manifesto and not a handbook. Over 90% of the content is spent on explaining the problems that devops solves without actually defining what devops is. Frustratingly it contains case studies stating the efficiencies gained by using devops but without actually explaining how. I think any content which could be considered a "handbook" could be condensed into a short chapter.
Perfect companion to the Phoenix Project (as it shares one of the same authors and is more of an entertaining 'horror story with a happy ending' about how badly managed IT projects can fail!) which I also bought at the same time. Agile infrastructure and lean IT, in the future people will look back on the history of IT management and DevOps and wonder how and why we ever delivered infrastructure and software projects using individual team silos, just throwing barrels of code down the waterfall without talking back to whoever started throwing them! If you really want to get ahead, start with the third section for practical implementation advice.
I read this book after it was recommended during a LinkedIn hosted training course (DevOps Fundamentals). Unsurprisingly, it's tightly aligned with the advice in that course, but the book is exceptional in being easy going and a "light" read despite the serious topic. It uses cases studies with an usual degree of honest insight (many of the case studies being major companies including FaceBook, LinkedIn, Etsy, NetFlix.
A great read for anyone wanting to "catch up" on modern DevOps (even from scratch). I'm off to buy it's accompanying novel, The Phoenix Project...
This is Jezzas follow up from the Phoenix Project and for me it was fairly dry in terms of story but thats because its a handbook rather than a novel so it was half expected. The book is great to get a understanding of moderm DevOps practices.
I work in a value-stream today and we discuss and have a lot of thoughts on dev-ops. The authors show a lot of insight into the different matters and are good at getting the message across to the reader.
If you’re looking for a clear, concise explanation of devops with some excellent examples, look no further. This book has influenced a huge change in behaviours in my workplace, we currently have two copies doing the rounds!
