The book's knowledge provides insightful and practical advice aimed at increasing DevOps success for every staffer, manager, executive, and team. -- Stephen Elliot, Program Vice President, I&O, DevOps, and Cloud Operations at IDC it's tone is as inviting as the case it makes is compelling. Business leaders looking for guidance about DevOps practices, or to get started on an implementation plan, will find much to work with here. * Publishers Weekly * Five years on, The DevOps Handbook is still an anchor in a sea of ever changing technical currents and topical winds. As relevant now as it was in the beginning. -- Shane Carlson, Principal Executive Architect at ServiceNow There are a lot of DevOps books, but very few that offer concrete, practical, and implementable advice and a roadmap for not just adopting DevOps practices and principles, but for also measuring their success. The DevOps Handbook is the definitive long-form guide for achieving success with DevOps methodologies. -- Nigel Kersten, Field CTO, Puppet DevOps can be somewhat mysterious. What does it really mean to 'break down silos?' The DevOps Handbook is just what's needed: a practical guide that shows you how to get started making real progress. -- Jeff Sussna, CEO, Sussna Associates
