Product description

Review

...it's tone is as inviting as the case it makes is compelling. Business leaders looking for guidance about DevOps practices, or to get started on an implementation plan, will find much to work with here.-- "Publishers Weekly"

DevOps can be somewhat mysterious. What does it really mean to 'break down silos?' The DevOps Handbook is just what's needed: a practical guide that shows you how to get started making real progress.--Jeff Sussna, CEO, Sussna Associates

Five years on, The DevOps Handbook is still an anchor in a sea of ever changing technical currents and topical winds. As relevant now as it was in the beginning.--Shane Carlson, Principal Executive Architect at ServiceNow

The DevOps Handbook has been a critical resource when working with clients to transform their software delivery culture and processes. The book provides easy to understand, practical patterns for improving workflow, communication, and product delivery.--Sam McLeod, DevOps Consultant

The DevOps Handbook is an amazing guide for anyone trying to improve their DevOps Kung-Fu in their companies. It literally covers everything you may need to know, and is filled with interesting case studies and real-life examples of how people have achieved success in their DevOps transformations.--Ross Clanton, Chief Architect, Managing Director, American Airlines

There are a lot of DevOps books, but very few that offer concrete, practical, and implementable advice and a roadmap for not just adopting DevOps practices and principles, but for also measuring their success. The DevOps Handbook is the definitive long-form guide for achieving success with DevOps methodologies.--Nigel Kersten, Field CTO, Puppet

This has become the defacto, must read reference book for organizations pursuing a DevOps strategy. The book's knowledge provides insightful and practical advice aimed at increasing DevOps success for every staffer, manager, executive, and team.--Stephen Elliot, Program Vice President, I&O, DevOps, and Cloud Operations at IDC
--This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the most comprehensive and practical DevOps guide out
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 October 2021
This is the best book I’ve read on DevOps and it follows on nicely from Gene Kim’s other book The Phoenix Project.

It’s quite easy to think that DevOps practices are just something that dev teams deal with and the value is simply just an increase in throughput, but the book provides clarity on the colossal value that adopting a DevOps culture and the principles can have on teams, the business, and customers.

Throughout the book, Gene echoes the importance of having the whole product team (product manager, designer and several engineers)) involved in the transformation, as well as focusing on outcomes, and to achieve outcomes you need to collect data and learn through experimentation which is covered in the book too.

Gene gives good advice that it’s important to avoid funding projects and instead you should fund services and products: “A way to enable high-performing outcomes is to create stable service teams with ongoing funding to execute their own strategy and road map of initiatives”.

This is the most comprehensive and practical DevOps guide out there and the layout makes the content easy to digest. The book covers:

– History leading up to DevOps, and Lean thinking
– Agile, and continuous delivery
– Value streams
– How to design your organisation and architecture
– Integrating security, change management, and compliance

The principles and tech practices of:
1. Flow
2. Feedback
3. Continual Learning and Experimentation

“Our goal is to enable market-oriented outcomes where many small teams can quickly and independently deliver value to the customer”
