Educating DevOps: A Business Perspective

Back in March I was approached to contribute to DevOps Perspectives, a quarterly eBook sponsored by +CA Technologies. The resulting article, "Educating DevOps", starts on page 26 of "DevOps Perspectives 3: Straight talking and the latest thinking from the DevOps frontline".

Use this link to download a copy of the eBook, which also includes contributions from +Dan North+nicole forsgren and +Matthew Skelton.

Spotifying SAFe with Guilds, Chapters and Squads

Last month’s Agile Australia conference played host to both Dean Leffingwell, the creator of the Scaled Agile Framework and Anders Ivarsson, Spotify Agile Coach and co-author of the Scaling Agile @ Spotify paper.
