Software Lifecycle Battle - Image customized by JD Black

At the request from our community, we take a step back and look at the foundational principles of DevOps. This month we provide an overview of the 3 Ways of DevOps: Systems Thinking & Flow, Feedback, and Continuous Learning & Experimentation. We also briefly review the origins of Agile and DevOps, highlighting that our focus should be using these principles to deliver customer value above all. Agile & DevOps alone are not our goals. Rather, Agile & DevOps provide us with the tools and techniques to deliver more value to our customers and their mission critical needs.

If you can’t make it to our meetup, remember to subscribe to the DevOps for Defene YouTube channel.

Charts from the meetup are posted as open source to our GitHub repository.
