Trying to understand better the concept of DevOps, I picked up the DevOps Handbook with the hope that my marketing curiosity would not be lost in a very technical text. I was lucky. The book is technical enough to keep the concepts real, but the main idea is communicated very clearly for a non-technical reader (or, in my case, listener).
DevOps is not a passing fad; it is a new way of thinking about software development, which is beneficial for companies’ bottom line and also personal lives of their employees. DevOps is closer related to “process” than “code,” but anything touching the code needs to fit seamlessly into the process.
The book explains “shift left” known in the cybersecurity industry, which incorporates security earlier in the development cycle to speed up the creation of applications with “built-in” security thinking.
The book helps a marketer to appreciate the complexity and challenges of his target audience, and, hopefully, understand this audience a little better.
