Volume 1 and Volume 2

28 DevOps and Continuous Delivery Reference Architectures

People want to get going with DevOps or Continuous Delivery, but need a place to start.  Others are already on their way, but need some validation of their choices.  A few months ago, I published the first volume of DevOps and Continuous Delivery reference architectures which has now been viewed over 50,000 times on SlideShare (it's free to download...no registration required).  Three things helped people in the deck: (1) the reference architectures, (2) links to the sources for each architecture attached to each slide, and (3) no marketing fluff.


To continue to help people on their DevOps and Continuous Delivery journeys, I've now compiled Volume 2 of the reference architectures.  You can view the deck on SlideShare, download it (again...no registration required), and share it with others.  Have a look and let me know what you think.

Earlier this month, I moderated a discussion with Dave Farley, co-author of seminal book Continuous Delivery, and Curtis Yanko and Brian Dawson.  All three shared their views as experienced practitioners on why these reference architectures are resonating with the CD / DevOps community. Check it out when you get a minute.

As I did with Volume 1, if you have a reference architecture that you would like to share, I would be happy to add it into Volume 2 with full attribution to you.  We have added 14 with the support of the DevOps community.  Just ping me in the comments section or reach out to me @weekstweets.

Here is Volume 2:

How is DevOps going within your organization? If you need some help measuring just how well it is going, we have prepared a list of some key DevOps metrics to track. These metrics can help you understand how your team is doing over time. The word DevOps means different things to different people. Some say it a culture and every vendor in the industry claims that their tools help with DevOps. Depending on how you define DevOps, some of these metrics may matter more or less to you and your team.

Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
