November 2016 - Top Lessons Learned While Researching And Writing The DevOps Handbook with Gene Kim, Author and Researcher

Gene Kim - Author and Researcher

In November 2016, Gene Kim shared his expertise, challenges, and lessons learned from his latest book. He provides specific examples around DevOps transformation case studies across multiple industries.

Gene Kim is a multi-award winning CTO, researcher and author. He is the founder of Tripwire and served as CTO for 13 years. He has written three books: “The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win,” “The Visible Ops Handbook” and the newly-released “DevOps Handbook.”

Gene is a huge fan of IT operations, and how it can enable developers to maximize throughput of features from “code complete” to “in production” without causing chaos and disruption to the IT environment. He has worked with some of the top Internet companies on improving deployment flow and increasing the rigor around IT operational processes. In 2007, “ComputerWorld” added Gene to the “40 Innovative IT People to Watch, Under the Age of 40” list, and he was named a Computer Science Outstanding Alumnus by Purdue University for achievement and leadership in the profession.

Brief Overview of This Modern Security Episode

After over five years of work, The DevOps Handbook has finally been released! The original plan was for this book to come out before The Phoenix Project in 2013, but we delayed the Handbook because there was so much about DevOps that I felt should go into the book, but didn’t understand well enough at the time.

In this talk, I will share my top learnings while coauthoring this book with Jez Humble, Patrick Debois, and John Willis. This will include specific DevOps transformation case studies around continuous integration and delivery, Jez Humble’s latest definitions of continuous delivery vs. deployment, how Conway’s Law and architecture can hinder and help the achievement of goals, concrete techniques to build a culture of continuous experimentation learning, including those from Google, Etsy, Nordstrom, and Capital One.

I’ll be sharing some of top lessons from The DevOps Handbook, which was released in early October 2016. The book has 480 pages, 23 chapters, over 40 case studies and numerous appendices.

Fill out the form and we’ll send you a copy of Gene’s talk from November 30th, 2016.
