DevOps Handbook with Gene Kim

The intent of the DevOps movement is to get organizations moving faster and more effectively by breaking down siloes, and improving communication. Gene Kim’s book The Phoenix Project illustrated this by telling the fictional story of a company adopting a DevOps mentality. Although that book was fiction, Gene is an experienced engineer, having worked as founder and CTO of Tripwire, a software company that makes security and compliance automation software.

In his new book The DevOps Handbook, Gene presents a practical companion to The Phoenix Project. Together with his co-authors, Gene has written a guide for how to move an organization toward DevOps, and in this episode we explore some of the topics from his book.
