Kick start on Dev Ops.

Good introduction to the topic by a very engaging and motivated teacher. Even as someone who already knew the basics of DevOps this course helped me grasp the finer details as well as get a better understanding of the big thoughts. This course is definately more about the theory of DevOps and not so much about concrete tools (although there are examples) but that's what I love about it. There is plenty of material about how to use all these tools, this course teaches your what to do with them and why you should care

Dev Ops Simplified

Great short but powerful read on DevOps implementation strategies Insightful read for organizations looking to implement devops and change their culture.

The DevOps approach greatly differs from traditional approach since it seeks ways to meld deployment and application development into a process, which would be more streamlined. This process would also align quality assurance, development, and operations team overall efforts. This approach also is able to shift some operational team’s efforts and responsibilities back to the team for development. This comes very usefully since it helps to facilitate continuous integration, continuous development, continuous monitoring processes and continuous delivery. There is a great necessity for tearing down great silos between operations and development. There is a great need to release codes faster as well as more often to help companies and organizations respond in a manner that is agiler to continuous and constantly changing business requirements. Drivers used for breaking these silos include greater usage various advances in software infrastructure containers, automation, cloud computing, micro services and other.

I highly recommend this book for any one looking to improve their teams' ability to coherently problem solve.

Devops is about operations

I got this book at DevOpsTalks conference in Melbourne. An excellent book about DevOps, it touches multiple areas of Modern DevOps worl. You should choose a reliable automation tool which can be easily implemented with already existing platforms like Microsoft, GitHub, AWS, Puppet, Selenium, New Relic, Jenkins, Chef, Sense and other. Organizations, which have adopted DevOps automation, in fact, have strong as well as a great positive impact on the industry. Adopting right DevOps practices helps organizations and companies to move towards better productivity and greater efficiency. Continuous delivery practices and lean management, in fact, have greatly contributed to stability and throughput. If you use right automation tools you can benefit from reduced cycles, higher quality of output, faster feedback loops and lower your overall costs of development. DevOps automation, in fact, leads to better quality of code, more frequent deploys and better testing. It also creates a certain culture of continuous improvement. IT organizations which have already adopted DevOps practices have thirty times more frequently deploys with two hundred times shorter lead times. These organizations also have sixty times fewer failures and they recover hundred sixty-eight times faster.

Embarking on the devOps path

This was a great place to start if you are embarking on the devOps path. Starts at the basics and concepts then applies real world practical scenarios. I particularly enjoyed following the one lightweight sample app from beginning to end instead of having separate unrelated examples. This really helps me connect the dots. Some parts were a little rough when it came to the fine details I feel like some assumptions were made that I'm already familiar with certain parts (with making your own custom/internal repositories for example) and we just went through the steps. I feel like an initial breakdown prior to running through the steps would be very helpful.

The definitive guide to DevOps

The topic has brought many companies and organizations together, and major software development companies look forward to incorporating DevOps techniques into their businesses. Strictly speaking, people are not surprised since separated teams within a company or organization, in fact, form broken lines of communication as well as no proper collaboration. Collaboration and communication are greatly required or even mandatory especially in the IT industry. It's more than tooling! It's people, process, culture, and a mindset that makes for a successful DevOps team and/or organization. The automation of DevOps is crucial for organizations to move in a direction towards success. More and more companies and organization have decided to move towards the path of DevOps adoption. This is not surprising if you look at various DevOps benefits. The way of doing various business is changing. Therefore, the way of managing IT operations and IT development have to change as well, and adopting DevOps is the right way to go and start making fundamental changes. This book is filled with more concepts and stories to challenge thinking and should inspire many about ways to evolve their organizations. This book is step by step guide into the world of DevOps. Before we get into the subject much deeper, we will briefly discuss what DevOps is and how we can use it in a great variety of practices. DevOps is a certain combination that includes tools, some cultural philosophies, and practices. These combinations are used in order to increase a company’s as well as organization’s ability to deliver specific services and applications at high velocity. In fact, DevOps makes possible for companies to evolve and improve their products at much faster pace than those organizations and companies which use traditional infrastructure management and traditional software development. This greater speed enables these organizations to better serve and compete more effectively in the overall market. If you follow DeOps approach and its methods, you will be able to cover your bases and you will shortly see great influence of DevOps on your business. You have to remember that DevOps is a great journey, but a journey that never ends. There are always new ways in order to improve what you do and what your team does. However, if you never get started, you definitely will not reach your goals, so there is no better time to start than now.

Set me up for success.

This is doing a very good job of staying current. He does a fine job with relating the lectures to the quality narration skills, and letting you figure out your own choices.
Update: I hadn't expected to be introduced to Scala and Play, but that is great too. Plus Kubernetes, etcd, consul, and more; this has really set me up for success.

Seems that Narrator knows his onions

Very easy to comprehend the english accent, very good quality of examples and references. I have only one complaint and it's about the Length used on each topic, they could be more detail. Sometimes it's seems he is beating around the bush on some topics, but nothing that can cause problems on the overall course.

My third course from Christopher

Great introduction to the world of DevOps. This is my third course from Christopher. I used three of his courses to build a one-click deployment of a data pipeline. Next one is "Continuous Delivery: A Brief Overview"! Keep up the great work Christopher!
