Demystifying DevOps

People like Patrick Debois, Andrew Shafer and John Allspaw (to name a few) have given us the means to transform this group of concepts into a movement but now it’s time to focus on some of its facets: continuous delivery, business culture, cloud platforms, microservices and container technology. Let’s allow our authors to convince you that these ingredients are equally important to DevOps. Mark Hinkle, VP at The Linux Foundation will tell you what’s next for the effort to improve coordination between software developers and operations personnel while Justin Arbuckle, CTO & Agile, Lean and DevOps Transformation Leader for Sococo, Inc. will explain why measuring DevOps ROI is essential for companies that are embracing the industry’s forward movement.

Björn Rabenstein, Production Engineer at SoundCloud, will reveal why Prometheus itself is a product of a DevOps mindset while Sunil Mavadia, Director of Customer Success for XebiaLabs, will convince you that release orchestration is essential for Continuous Delivery success. We haven’t even got to the discussion about culture, cloud and microservices so perhaps you should open the magazine and see what we have prepared for you.
