Continuous Delivery and DevOps experience reports from the wild

I am delighted to announce Matthew Skelton and I are co-authors of a new book Build Quality In – a collection of Continuous Delivery and DevOps experience reports from the wild.

The interdependent disciplines of Continuous Delivery and DevOps can transform the fortunes of an organisation, but they are hard. Matthew and I want to help people on their Continuous Delivery and/or DevOps journey, by sharing the experiences of those who have done it – what worked, what didn’t, and the highs and lows of trying to build quality into an organisation.

Build Quality In will be an anthology of first-person narratives from Continuous Delivery and DevOps practitioners. We have an incredible group of contributors who have agreed to give up their own time to tell their stories, with Dave Farley writing the Continuous Delivery foreword. Further announcements on contributors and a DevOps foreword are pending.

Matthew and I are donating 70% of author royalties for Build Quality In to Code Club – a not-for-profit organisation that runs a UK-wide network of free volunteer-led after-school coding clubs for children aged 9-11. We passionately believe that diversity within the IT industry must improve, and we want to contribute in some small way.

Right now we are in our launch phase. If you are interested in learning more about Build Quality In, please visit our Leanpub landing page. If you are interested in purchasing our book, please register on the Leanpub landing page and indicate how much you would be willing to pay. Over the next few weeks the first contributors will submit their draft articles, and we will announce publication via Build Quality In on Twitter and a pending book website.
