Appdome has integrated its platform with GitHub to build, scale, and deliver software.
It is typical for frameworks or practices to create a body of knowledge or "BoK" upon which they and their offerings are based. Traditionally, BoK's are encapsulated in one or more books, written by one or more authors and updated every few years.
In a space that is as global and fast-moving as DevOps, it has been near impossible to point to a single source as the official DevOps BoK. In fact, DevOps Institute has been advocating for a Collaborative Body of Knowledge (cBok) for several years. To my mind, bodies of knowledge should not be fixed.
The model of an inclusive DevOps Collaborative Body of Knowledge (DcBok) has now become a reality. DevOps Institute‘s new SKILup Playbook Library is a series of topics or role-based holistic guidance that marries thought leadership from industry experts with an orchestrated set of dynamic assets and artifacts from a range of vetted sources. Without a fixed form factor, each playbook in the series can be updated and added to in regular increments to keep them fresh.
Every SKILup Playbook is built upon four "start where you are" pillars and includes twelve research chapter reports plus additional content for ongoing discovery and support.
The first SKILup Playbook is aptly named The DevOps Journey with chapter reports by industry experts such as Shaaron Alvares, Matthew Skelton, Andi Mann, Helen Beal, JP Garbani, Karen Skiles and Eveline Oehrlich, DevOps Institute's Research Director who is leading this initiative. The DevOps Journey Playbook includes orchestrated collaborative content from a variety of other public sources in order to present this Collaborative Body of Knowledge (cBok) in a digestible, dynamic and digital way for the DevOps Human, including:
Explore and Discover
■ Key topics around the vision, mission and objectives of the DevOps Journey.
■ What success looks from case studies and vertical markets.
■ The landscape of the "State of DevOps" today and market insight.
Understand and Learn
■ Frameworks for understanding DevOps and other related industry practices.
■ Functional and technical content including glossary and certification information.
Plan, Practice and Do
■ The cultural aspects of the DevOps Journey including skills, role and workplace structures.
■ Content around key functional and process-oriented tasks including automation and industry research.
Optimize and Improve
■ Performance management including measurement and metrics around key performance indicators, objectives and key results.
■ A library of community resources to support discussions and movements associated with improving daily work performance.
Every SKILup Playbook will follow the same model.
Next up in the SKILup Playbook Library – The Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Playbook (with more to come). Stay tuned!
DevOps Institute will be continuously updating the DevOps Journey playbook and others with regional and global perspectives for actionable strategies and implementations. We invite your feedback at email@example.com and welcome interest in participating in our SKILup Playbook Library.
