Information technology experts Gene Kim, Kevin Behr and George Stafford offer the basics of DevOps, an innovative IT management system that promotes collaboration and coordination among IT operations, software developers, and other business units as well as product owners. DevOps, a pragmatic approach to IT, is also an exciting philosophical movement that may change IT operations as much as the Toyota Production System revolutionized production lines in the 1980s. The authors structure their book as a business fable – indeed, a business parable – about how DevOps saves the fictitious auto parts company Parts Unlimited. getAbstract recommends this best-selling guide and its essential appendix, “The Phoenix Project Resource Guide,” which provides a detailed overview of DevOps and what it entails. If you work in IT or a related field, you’ll relish this entertaining, informative guidebook and compelling read.

Comment on this recommendation
3 months agoA solid DevOps foundation book. Consider reading Accelerate and the DevOps Handbook for more recent reads and this as background.
1 year agoI have read the book, which I would highly encourage for a great read! I come back to the summary once and a while to refresh myself on the concepts.
