Continuous Delivery and DevOps are difficult. In many organisations the creation of an automated deployment pipeline is impeded by significant technology challenges, and encouraging Development and Operations teams to work together can seem impossible.
In order to help teams adopt and sustain Continuous Delivery and DevOps, Steve Smith and I decided to put together a book of experience reports – Build Quality In – with contributions from fellow practitioners in these fields.
We have a growing list of really excellent contributors, and we are using LeanPub and its ‘lean’ publication model to make available the content as soon as each chapter is ready – no ‘big bang’ releases! The book is available to buy now on LeanPub, and updates will be made throughout the summer of 2014, with all chapters expected to be ‘done’ by September 2014.
70% of royalties from the book will be donated to the UK non-profit organisation Code Club, which inspires kids to learn how to use computers to build software systems. We wanted to support an organisation that is active in engaging and shaping future engineers (both female and male), and Code Club is doing a great job.
We’re excited to be working with so many talented people on this book, which we hope will become a useful resource for people working in a Continuous Delivery or DevOps context.
