The DZone Guide to DevOps: Continuous Delivery and Automation, Volume IV

Discover the acclaimed Team Guides for Software – practical books on operability, business metrics, testability, releasability

DZone has recently released the latest version of their free DevOps report: “The DZone Guide to DevOps: Continuous Delivery and Automation, Volume IV”, a collection of articles, reports and surveys by IT experts.

DevOps does not need introductions anymore in 2017  – it has become the “new normal” in software development and is a permanent topic of discussion. The collected articles explore the current state of DevOps, including industry challenges, best practices, and solutions with a focus on continuous delivery and automation.

We have contributed a piece to the DZone guide as well. Manuel Pais and Matthew Skelton collaborated on an article about “Continuous Delivery Anti-Patterns”. They have explored the “unintentional” and often hard-to-notice anti-patterns that might emerge when adopting a “DevOps one-stop shop” solution, such as: Environment-Driven Pipelines or Error Handling and Logging Behind Closed Doors. (Previously, Matthew Skelton has delivered several talks on other Continous Delivery anti-patterns we’ve seen in our experience, see the slides from IP EXPO Europe for example.)

The article was published in the guide and separately here:


The other contributors to “The DZone Guide to Continuous Delivery” include Anders Wallgren (CTO, Electric Cloud) – “Microservices And Docker At Scale”, Job van der Voort (VP of Product, GitLab) – “9 Benefits Of Continuous Integration”, Christian Posta (Principal Middleware Architect at Red Hat and Open-Source Enthusiast) – “Why Microservices Should Be Event Driven” and many more!
