Last Sunday I finally found and made the time to start on a book that was recommended to me over a year ago: “The Phoenix Project”. It was a nice quite Sunday at home, doors open to the garden, good music on and started in the morning. After a couple of chapters I was unable to put it away. It was such a catching read, ten hours later, book done. It was a very long time ago that I was able to read for that long a period.
The book really helped me understand the different processes more. Building an App and maintaining that app is not different that building car parts and maintaining those parts.
If you really want to get a good understanding of the transformation into DevOps and the reasoning why, this book is really the book to read. Written with enough wit and soo many recognisable situations, that any of us in the IT industry encounter on a daily basis.
