Summary

Increase profitability, elevate work culture, and exceed productivity goals through DevOps practices.

More than ever, the effective management of technology is critical for business competitiveness. For decades, technology leaders have struggled to balance agility, reliability, and security. The consequences of failure have never been greater - whether it's the healthcare.gov debacle, cardholder data breaches, or missing the boat with Big Data in the cloud.

And yet, high performers using DevOps principles, such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, Etsy, and Netflix, are routinely and reliably deploying code into production hundreds, or even thousands, of times per day.

Following in the footsteps of The Phoenix Project, The DevOps Handbook shows leaders how to replicate these incredible outcomes by showing how to integrate product management, development, QA, IT operations, and information security to elevate your company and win in the marketplace.

narrator drones a lot and found it hard to finish but definitely worth it! good book

Practically put

Referencing many of the books I have enjoyed recently, including The Goal and The Phoenix Project, the DevOps Handbook starts putting meat on the bone, of how not just what.

A fascinating read with enterprise and SMB references throughout, highlighting the benefits and pitfalls, together with example implementations.

If you enjoyed The Phoenix Project then read this, 'How to' manual.

Difficult to listen to, poor choice of narrator

So many pauses between words it makes listening to this book annoying as you know what is going to be said next but theres these unnatural, pauses!
Had to play on 2x to make it bearable.

Difficult to do as an Audio

This is an excellent book, but more of a working handbook. It's very tough to gain the knowledge and usefulness from this as an audiobook. I ended up buying the hard copy too.

excelente continuation to project phoenix

If you didn't read their previous book, don't worry, you should be able to read this book without any issues but I would suggest go and read it first, and then this.

It continues where the project Phoenix left filling more in the techniques and tools needed but without going deep in the use of any them (you'll need to read about those if what you look is to implement it, I would suggest go and read DevOps 2.0 as is more hands on) however Kim Gene and his troop give you the processes and higher level requirements you'll need to comprehend all about DevOps and overall the transformation that is needed inside the organization.

Great story and good narration. Highly recommended for any in the IT area or any medium to big organization.

A must-read for anybody involved in sowftware

This is the best book I have come across on overall best practices for delivering successful software. Lots of real world examples, not just theory.

Good follow-on book after Project Phoenix

I fell in love with book reading via audible. Overall book was good except that it was bit length and lost some of the reader attention..
