Summary

Are we doing DevOps or SRE? There are many blogs, videos, and Quora posts discussing the similarities and differences in both the practices. SRE was developed by Google for internal consumption and overlaps with the DevOps culture and philosophy.

Now let’s see a definition of DevOps and SRE!

  • DevOps is more of an organizational culture that fills the gap between coder and the operation person and aligns them to the overall organizational goal.
  • SRE is what happens when a software engineer is entrusted with operations!

This audiobook explains both of them in length and also covers relevant case studies and success stories and implementation strategies.

This audiobook can be used by a beginner, technology consultant, business consultant, project manager, or any member of the project team trying to figure out SRE and DevOps. The structure of the audiobook is such that it answers the most asked questions about DevOps and SRE. It also covers the best and the latest case studies with benefits. Therefore, it is expected that after going through this audiobook, you can discuss the topic with any stakeholder and take your agenda ahead as per your role.

Here is your chance to dive into the DevOps and SRE role and know what it takes to implement best practices.

The DevOps, continuous delivery, and SRE movements are here to stay and grow; it's time you to ride the wave! So, don’t wait; take action!

Inch deep YouTube like good for beginners

DevOps part is inch deep, YouTube like with no added value to me, while SRE is a bit better due to some short case studies. Overall not recommended unless you want to learn a few conversational buzz words.

DevOps transformations in heavily siloed companies

Really excellent coverage of practical DevOps.

Really excellent coverage of practical Dev Ops. We run both in-house and SaaS development operations groups, and the experiences in this book should be required listening.

Save Your Money

Many disconnected, unsupported statements. I am not sure if the language issue are odd choices by the author or mistakes by the narrator. I have over 30 years in the industry. I hoped to get some kind of insight through this book but there was nothing of substance.

Horrible Narration & Basic Content

I wanted to turn this off - the narration is the worst. The narrator couldnt pronounce words correctly and also misplaced syllable emphasis - it was very distracting and made this a rough listen. Also, the content is very, very basic - especially from the DevOps/Agile side. Basically, if you have never heard of these terms, you could benefit; otherwise, pass.

Monotone and of order and oversimplified

The first thing I became frustrated with was that it seemed the intro and first few chapters were actually the narrator literally reading the table of contents. It seems Chapter 5 is actually Chapter 1. The narrated is reading without much emotion; it sounds like a late 90s corporate training tape but with modern audio recording; the audio is also a bit tinny too. I regret using a credit for this one.
