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".

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.
