Continuous Delivery and DevOps experience reports from the wild

I am pleased to announce the publication of the final version of Build Quality In by Matthew Skelton and I on Leanpub!

Build Quality In is an anthology of first-person narratives from Continuous Delivery and DevOps practitioners. With forewords by Dave Farley and Patrick Debois and contributions from 20 practitioners, Build Quality In is full of great stories on how to improve quality and cadence of software delivery.

Build Quality In contains a 5000 word article from myself – “34 Days”, which describes my 3 year Continuous Delivery journey at Sky Network Services. It looks at our automation, organisational change, and design efforts over a sustained period of time – and offers a data-driven perspective on its impact upon the value stream. It’s been a labour of love for many months and all feedback is welcome.

My thanks go out to Matthew, our contributors,  Code Club, and Leanpub. There will be a print version of Build Quality In early in 2015 if there is sufficient interest, and Vol 2 is tentatively scheduled for 2016.

Matthew and I are donating 70% of author royalties for Build Quality In toCode 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. By purchasingBuild Quality In you will be contributing to improving the diversity and gender imbalance in the IT industry, and as of now we have donated £700.
