Navigating DevOps through Waterfalls

Join the Agents of Chaos (AoCs) as they embark on a mission to help save Mr. Maverick, Big Corp’s CIO, from the evil clutches of the Overlords! The AoCs see how Big Corp, like many companies, confuse Agile as DevOps and vice versa; worse, they believe they can just buy it off the shelf. There is a lot of work with the AoCs to help Mr. Maverick and his IT teams. This book will take you, the reader, along a journey of implementing a DevOps mindset in your organization, so climb aboard our cramped boat for an experience you will not forget! Enjoy a learning adventure, so you can practice the behaviour, attitude, processes and tools in your organization … or at least be ready when DevOps comes your way.
