Must-have

This is really a must-listen for anyone interested in DevOps; follow the suggestions in this book and you'll be shocked at the extent and speed of positive transformation; I wish I'd read this book years ago when I was working on "project phoenix." This book will provide you all of the tools you'll need to transform your projects from complete failures to market-leading products.

One of the best books about DevOps

I've read a lot of DevOps books. Over time, this has become my go-to book to recommend to colleagues when they require a business-oriented DevOps authority document to present/fortify in the organization. Various audits have called for the use of more specialized chemicals. In any event, the journey must begin somewhere. Also, this is an excellent place to start - or improve!

What a beautiful book!

What a beautiful book! It covers everything from development security to deployment, management, and communication. It takes the secure devops process all the way from the developer computer to the final result in production. The author is quite knowledgeable, as evidenced by his writing. For each topic presented, there are example codes and open source tools, and the reader is left with immediately actionable information.

Learned a lot

This book is essentially required perusing for present-day associations who either don't comprehend or know what DevOps is or alternately are amidst carrying out it. It's brimming with strong thoughts and it takes committed and skillful individuals at your association to carry out, and don't anticipate hitting the nail on the head the initial time. In any case, it begins with little changes and accelerates into colossal increases as time advances, given a believing supervisory group.

Awesome reference

If you're looking for a book a year after it was published, I'd recommend saving your money and shopping for something more recent. But, for the time being, it is likely the finest assessment of modern DevOps processes until the tools and principles it covers are judged antiquated. Purchase it, listen to it, and improve it.

A terrific follow-up to the Phoenix Project

In my opinion, this was a terrific follow-up to the Phoenix Project. After studying the book, I realized that the approaches utilized by the team in that book could assist my organization. However, I found myself pondering how to replicate the processes that were used in that project. This audiobook has more information on how to build up your DevOps organization, as well as some excellent case studies that demonstrate how successful these methods have been for others.

Timely and really useful

This book is timely and really useful; it gives us with useful references on how to set up a system. It's what we're referring to in order to set up our centralized logging system. The author does a fantastic job of describing a complex topic.

Full of strong ideas

This book is important reading for today's organizations that either don't understand or know what DevOps is or are in the process of implementing it. It's full of strong ideas, and it'll take dedicated and skilled employees in your organization to carry it out and don't expect to hit the nail on the head the first time. In any event, given a trusting supervisory group, it begins with small modifications and quickly escalates to massive increases.

My go-to book

This has become my go-to book to recommend to peers when they require a business-oriented leadership guide on DevOps and how to implement/improve it in their organizations throughout the years. A lot of reviewers have called for further technical information. Whatever the case may be, the trip must begin somewhere. And here is an excellent location to begin - or to improve! The authors are definitely thought leaders in the field, there are several examples and case studies, and the material is very approachable to non-technical business leaders.
