Ready for production? We've got you covered. The book dedicates chapters to development operations and production operations. Learn to quickly, simply, and reliably build, package, configure, deploy, and monitor the applications in production server environments.
About the Author
I fell in love with technology at a young age. Using my family's first computer, it wasn't enough to play games or to see what I could do with some software package. I needed to know how it worked... what made it tick... how the pieces fit together.
As I grew older and started a career as a software engineer, my curiosity only grew. That drive to understand the technologies I used to perform my job made me a better technologist. Sometimes though, the road to deeper understanding was painful. Sometimes the documentation is difficult to find, scattered among blog posts or forums.
In my books, I share what I have learned throughout nearly two decades as a technology professional. Each book is a journey that we take together, learning while we build and building while we learn. After all, building new tech is fun. Learning something along the way is a bonus.
