I’ve been helping organisations to adopt and evolve DevOps for many years, so I am pleased to be able to share my experience through monthly live video training with O’Reilly Media: Getting Started with DevOps in 90 mins - for execs and leaders.
Here are the links to recommended reading for the course; I thought it would be useful to share these for anyone who is getting started with DevOps (whether or not you join the online training).
