About the Book

DevOps: A Workflow seeks to provide a flexible, comprehensive, prototypal software delivery system inspired by the ideals and methodologies presented in DevOps: A Manifesto. In taking a holistic approach, DevOps: A Workflow tightly integrates Development and Operations roles to form a single team whose sole purpose is the timely delivery of working, reliable services and infrastructure.

All of the policies, procedures, and toolset integrations featured in DevOps: A Workflow are focused on the singular goal of delivering working, reliable services and infrastructure. Yet, the workflow described is redressable and provides for questioning of purpose. Each suggested procedure, integration, and policy defends itself with reference to its reason for existence, allowing for reflective and informed customisation. Additionally, an exclusive focus on Open Source solutions (with mention of services such as PagerDuty, Datadog, and Amazon Web Services) takes the notion of customisation for your needs even further, allowing true evaluation and mutation of functionality.

DevOps: A Workflow shows you how.
