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 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. By purchasing Build 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.

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.
