Top Lessons Learned While Researching and Writing The DevOps Handbook **

› Please also RSVP via Meetup

After over five years of work, The DevOps Handbook is finally out! The original plan was for this book to come out before The Phoenix Project in 2013, but we delayed the Handbook because there was so much about DevOps that needed to go into the book, but I personally didn’t understand well enough.

In this talk, I will share my top learnings while co-authoring this book with Jez Humble, Patrick Debois, and John Willis. This will include specific DevOps transformation case studies around value stream mapping, continuous integration and delivery, how organizational design, Conway’s Law and architecture are all needed for the achievement of DevOps outcomes, as well concrete techniques to build a culture of continuous experimentation learning. I will describe some of my favorite case studies, including those from Google, Etsy, LinkedIn, Target, Nordstrom, Capital One, Nationwide Insurance and more.

The DevOps Handbook has 48 case studies, and for people who want to research more, there are 503 endnotes and 192 footnotes.

Gene Kim is a multiple award-winning CTO, researcher and author. He was founder and CTO of Tripwire for 13 years. He has written three books, including “The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win” and the newly-released “The DevOps Handbook.” Since 2014, he has been the organizer of the DevOps Enterprise Summit.
