How to choose tools for DevOps and Continuous Delivery

This post was written by Matthew Skelton co-author of Team Guide to Software Operability.

With an ever-increasing array of tools and technologies claiming to ‘enable DevOps’, how do we know which tools to try or to choose? In-house, open source, or commercial? Ruby or shell? Dedicated or plugins? It transpires that highly collaborative practices such as DevOps and Continuous Delivery require new ways of assessing tools and technologies in order to avoid creating new silos. We share our recent experience of helping many different organisations to evaluate and select tools to facilitate DevOps; the recommendations may surprise you.

(The video and slides here are from the excellent DevOps Exchange meetup group – thanks to the organisers for inviting us to speak)
