The well-known DevOps Topologies patterns for assessing team relationships for modern software delivery have been used by organisations around the world. Created by Conflux founder Matthew Skelton in 2013 (and expanded since with community input), the patterns have helped organisations such as Netflix, Condé Nast International, adidas, and Accenture to improve their software delivery and operations capabilities.

Background

In 2013, Matthew Skelton (now Head of Consulting at Conflux) published the original DevOps topologies patterns which have become the industry standard for discussing the merits and drawbacks of different team designs for software delivery. Since 2015, Matthew Skelton and Manuel Pais have been curating the DevOps topologies patterns at devopstoplogies.com

The DevOps topologies patterns compare and contrast effective and ineffective patterns for organising teams for modern software delivery. These patterns are point-in-time snapshots of team relationships.
