Every organization wants to adopt DevOps and as an IT professional, it is important to understand the fundamentals of DevOps and how it can contribute to the success of your organization. This book provides complete coverage of the steps needed to implement the culture, people, and process aspects of DevOps.

Often people start on the wrong end, which is tools, and end up failing. This book highlights the importance of having a culture that embraces change, also highlights the importance of having all stakeholders onboarded and agreeing to go down this journey. Being a DevOps leader myself, I can certainly say that I have learnt a few new things from Martyn’s book.” – Nadeem Augustine

DevOps is a set of best practices enabling operations and development teams to work together, producing higher quality work and among other things, quicker releases. This book enables you to understand the fundamentals needed to get started with DevOps before you head into deploying technical tools.

The book will help you understand how aspects of culture, people and process are all connected, and that without one of these elements DevOps is unlikely to be successful.

Finally, you will explore the latest trends in DevOps and look at how the tooling changes when working within these specialties. By the end of this book, you will be confident in discussing the connection between culture, people and processes within DevOps and why all three are critically important.
