The need for DevOps innovation has never been greater. Get the results from over 100 business value assessments in this whitepaper, Digital Darwinism: Driving Digital Transformation, to see the positive impact of DevOps first hand.

Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the DevOps Zone (January 30 - February 06). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Why Customers Choose Datical DB to Automate Database Deployments

  • Truly, database automation is the last mile necessary to realize the promise of Agile, Continuous Delivery, and DevOps.

2. Introducing the Latest DZone Guide to Continuous Delivery

  • While CD is touted as the poster child for achieving these goals, it's often a confusing and complicated topic. DZone's Guide to Continuous Delivery was produced to help you achieve these goals. It provides you with the data, ideas, and solutions you need to drastically improve your software production and delivery process.

3. Automated Testing Shows a Respect for Employees

  • Testing is great, but we don’t have time for it. Or the common alternative: Testing is great, but it’s not feasible to test what we’re doing.

4. Git Flow and Immutable Build Artifacts

  • Whilst Git Flow is terrific for managing features and separating release candidates from ongoing development, things get a little hazier when it comes time to actually release to production. This is because of a mismatch between the way that Git Flow works and another practice that is common in large development projects: immutable build artifacts.

5. The Winding Road to DevOps Maturity

  • I have noticed a trend in the evolution of teams when it comes to DevOps maturity over the years, which I now call the winding road of maturity. Recently I was using a DevOps model to describe the progress overtime, which I’ve designed a while ago and realized that with the advent of cloud based DevOps I have to update my model.
