About the Book
I wrote this book because, it seems, "DevOps" is creating a lot of anxiety amongst the IT professionals of the world. It's also causing a bit of a boom for technology marketing people, who in turn are making the whole concept confusing for businesses and professionals alike. I've answered so many questions about DevOps at conferences, in online forums, and in blog comments that I found myself retyping almost the same things over and over… which made me feel that a small book might be in order.
This is an effort to set the record straight for someone who might be feeling a little vague or uncertain about what DevOps is, whether or not they're "doing DevOps," and so on. It's meant to be useful to business leaders, technology leaders, and technologists. I'll keep it concise and straightforward. Because The DevOps Collective is a nonprofit, and because we don't sell anything, I can also keep this completely noncommercial, vendor-neutral, and honest.
