Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the DevOps Zone  (May 16 to May 22). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. DZone Research Continuous Delivery News Update (May 19)

Things continue to evolve in the DevOps industry every day. In this month's update, leading enterprises embrace web-scale IT automation with Chef, Bamboo 5.5 released instant access for Stash repos, IMB launched their impressive cloud marketplace (including Zend and others), and #ChefConf 2014 was a hit.

2. Loose Ends: Continuous Delivery & Conway's Law

A few weeks ago I did a presentation entitled “Conway’s Law and Continuous Delivery” - although it was also at some point entitled “Conway’s Law and Organisational Change” or possibly “Conway’s Law and Change for Continuous Delivery” - to the Pipeline Conference in London.

3. Chicken or Egg: Abstraction and Automation

For many SDN and DevOps enthusiasts, the natural outcome of this wave of technological change is a highly-automated network that is well-orchestrated with surrounding systems and applications. One of the prevailing thoughts is that this level of automation is a well-formed abstraction layer.

4. How Does TDD Affect Design?

TDD doesn't create good design. You do. TDD can help expose design smells. You have to pay attention and fix them. TDD can push you toward facile solutions. You have to be careful not to make your design worse just to make testing better.

5. Weighing in on Long Live Testing

DHH recently wrote a provocative piece that gave some views into how he does and doesn't test these days.
