In Detail

For a while now, there has been a buzz around the IT industry regarding continuous delivery and DevOps. This book will provide you with some background information into these two new kids on the block and how they can help you to optimize, streamline and improve the way you work and ultimately how you ship quality software.

"Continuous delivery and DevOps: A Quickstart guide" will provide you with a clear and concise insight into what continuous delivery and DevOps are all about, how to go about preparing for and implementing them and what quantifiable business value they bring. Included within are some tricks and trips based upon real world experiences which may help you reduce the time and effort needed if you were to go it alone.

In this book, you will be taken through a journey of discovery starting with real world successes, how you should prepare, plan for and implement CD and DevOps and what the pitfalls are along the way

We will start looking at the evolution of a typical software house from fledgling start-up through the growing pains that comes with global success to a best of both worlds. We’ll delve into the many aspects of what they did to complete this evolution covering topics such as how they realized there was a problem to solve, how they set about preparing for and implementing continuous delivery and DevOps and what tools, techniques and approaches they used along the way – some technical and some not so. If you work within an organization that delivers software, you will be able to plot where you are on the evolutionary scale, understand where you need to do to be more effective, cherry pick the tools, techniques and approaches that work for you and realize the best of both worlds.

"Continuous delivery and DevOps: A Quickstart guide" will provide you with the background and information you need to realize the benefits within your own business


This book is both a practical and theoretical guide detailing how to implement continuous delivery and Devops to consistently ship quality software quickly.

Who this book is for

Whether you are a freelance software developer, a system administrator working within a corporate business, an IT project manager or a CTO in a startup you will have a common problem; regularly shipping quality software is painful. It needn't be. This book is for anyone who wants to understand how to ship quality software regularly without the pain.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pragmatisch und Verständlich 25. Januar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Dieses Buch konzentriert sich auf das "Welches Problem löst Continuous Delivery" und warum ist die "DevOps Idee" Voraussetzung für die erfolgreiche Implementierung von Continuous Delivery. Konkrete Tools und Techniken werden fast nicht erwähnt, zum Glück.
Wer intuitiv weiß, dass CD der richtige Weg ist, dem aber konkrete Argumente fehlen oder im Umsetzungsprozess feststeckt, für den ist dieses Buch Gold wert. Es ist leicht zu lesen, spannend und informativ, mit vielen praxisnahen Beispielen und Lösungen. Die Lösungen sind fast nie technisch, es geht ums Begründen und wie man alle Beteiligten (DevOps) ins Boot holt, und wie man die notwendigen Veränderungen der Organisation angeht.

Wer das klassische "Continuous Delivery" (Jez Humble & David Farley) kennt, sollte dieses Buch auch lesen. Es ist kompakter, mehr auf das Warum und weniger auf das technische Wie fokussiert, und es hilft andere zu überzeugen und den Veränderungsprozess anzustossen. Ich wünschte ich hätte erst dieses Buch und dann den Klassiker gelesen.

2.0 von 5 Sternen still looking for a good DevOps book 12. August 2013
Von Sam Bishop - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I am still looking for a good DevOps book, but I wasted $10 to find out that this isn't one.

This book reduces down to two ideas. The first is that you should be using some form of an Agile process. A generic, lowest-common denominator Agile process is described in the book, in case you have somehow managed to not be familiar with Agile concepts already. The second idea is that you should gather the key players of your organization together and "discuss the elephant in the room". (I wish I were making this up!) There is no discussion about what that elephant might be exactly, but apparently once you have discussed it then you are practicing "DevOps".

2.0 von 5 Sternen Just some common sense applied to DevOps 17. August 2013
Von Vladislav Skvortsov - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This books doesn't deliver much beyond common sense applied to DevOps. Most of the contents is about general dynamics that happen in a team and it's superficial — you can get much of it from any general-purpose "management" or "leadership" books. "Involve people in discussions", "encourage collaboration", "let everyone express their concerns freely", "have an honest conversations about most pressing issues and come up with a plan" — this is what I'm talking about.

The actual DevOps aspects are covered in passing, without much depth and breadth.

Not worth it — read a book on management (or listen to Manager Tools podcasts) and read some books on Continuous Delivery and surrounding topics. You will then be well equipped to implement DevOps on your own and write the same kind of book yourself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A DevOps guide that provides a plan of attack 7. Mai 2013
Von Joe - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
If you are a relative novice that will be rolling out DevOps, this is a great book to read. It start out with a story about a company that starts as a small development shop, is gobbled up by a bigger company, and then need to move to continuous development and DevOps. This story helps guide the discussion for the rest of the book.

The book is quite prescriptive about how to create a DevOps organization (for example, getting the developers closer to operations, including methods to achieve this goal). Some areas that are covered include recommendation about how many environments you should have (production, test, etc.), tool that assist with continuous development and DevOps and what to measure. I especially liked the section on potential issues, and how to address them.

The human side of DevOps is interesting, and is valid for most development and operations models, not just DevOps.

A couple of items that were not covered that I would have like to have seen included:
- Which recommendation should be leveraged in areas that are not moving forward with continuous development.
- Many organizations have some areas that have continuous development and some that do not. This does not discuss how to manage a mixed organization.

As a get started guide, this is a quick read with solid recommendations. 5 stars.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A solid introduction 7. Dezember 2012
Von Matthias Marschall - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This Book is a solid introduction to Devops and Continuous Delivery. As the author puts it, its a "collection of suggestions based upon experience and observations."

You'll learn what Devops is all about and how Continuos Delivery fits into the picture. You'll hear about a lot of trusted approaches to get the move to Devops started and there're a lot of tips on how to plan for and push through upcoming obstacles.

Expect to get a lot of good pointers but be prepared to dig deeper yourself into the more complex topics. The book can get you started but cannot go into every detail.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Solid in the "non-technical" stuff 9. Mai 2013
Von Alexander Tarnowski - Veröffentlicht auf
This book presents a very nice overview of how to introduce continuous delivery (CD) into an organization and what a DevOps team actually does. Its primary strength is its broad picture; it doesn't neglect the fact that an introduction of continuous delivery must be preceded and accompanied by lots and lots of information and marketing. The best use of this book is to put in the hands of a technically savvy executive, who would be affected by the changes brought by CD. You could also read it as a gentle introduction to the topic, but in terms of actually implementing anything, this book would probably not get you very far.

As opposed to The Book on CD, it contains very little about tools and technology in general. Actually, I think I found references to two tools in total (Nagios and Graphite). Technical details are not this book's strength. Instead, it should be read as a guide to communicating and managing the changes that an introduction of CD will bring.

I found this book very inspiring, but I would not call it a "Quickstart guide". It's too high level and swishes past concepts that become quite complicated if treated in more detail. For example, the topic of deployment of independent loosely-coupled components gets three quarters of a page, and pretty much nothing is said about branching. Being written the way it is, this book gets away with this approach.

I read it when struggling with organizational issues myself, and found a couple of good angles to things. I get the feeling that the author "has been around" and wants to share some of his "softer" findings, which happened to help me at the time of reading.

My summary and recommendation of this book are as follows: Read this book if you want a map of the entire area of CD and DevOps. The map won't be detailed, but it will cover the entire area. You could also read it as a companion to the more famous book on CD. This is not a "five star", but I really liked that it took on the non-technical perspective, and I always admire authors who can write about a topic in less than 200 pages.

Read it. It's just one evening of your life.
