New JAX Magazine issue — Demystifying DevOps

DevOps was born in late 2009 and since has gone mainstream; everyone is talking about it, every company is trying to do it and every manager is trying to be successful at it. What are the factes behind the buzzword? This JAX Magazine issue is packed with goodies to help you embrace DevOps— it’s our treat!

DevOps’ godfather Patrick Debois launched DevOpsDays in late 2009 after John Allspaw’s Velocity 2009 presentation – 10+ Deploys Per Day: Dev and Ops Cooperation – grabbed his attention. Although there may not be a clear DevOps Manifesto and people see this set of practices through different lens, it’s safe to say that this movement is blossoming into a mainstream strategy.

People like Patrick Debois, Andrew Shafer and John Allspaw (to name a few) have given us the means to transform this group of concepts into a movement but now it’s time to focus on some of its facets: continuous delivery, business culture, cloud platforms, microservices and container technology. Let’s allow our authors to convince you that these ingredients are equally important to DevOps.

  • Mark Hinkle, VP at The Linux Foundation will tell you what’s next for the effort to improve coordination between software developers and operations personnel
  • Justin Arbuckle, CTO & Agile, Lean and DevOps Transformation Leader for Sococo, Inc. will explain why measuring DevOps ROI is essential for companies that are embracing the industry’s forward movement.
  • Björn Rabenstein, Production Engineer at SoundCloud, will reveal why Prometheus itself is a product of a DevOps mindset
  • Sunil Mavadia, Director of Customer Success for XebiaLabs, will convince you that release orchestration is essential for Continuous Delivery success.

We haven’t even got to the discussion about culture, cloud and microservices so perhaps you should open the magazine and see what we have prepared for you:
