I’ve been listening to a lot of devops cafe podcasts lately. It’s opened up a new world of reading material on various subjects, technical and non-technical.
Just writing a short post to list some books I’ve been adding to my reading queue:
The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, And Helping Your Business Win
This is a novel about a fictional IT organization called Parts Unlimited. Meant to be a cautionary tail, it follows a successful middle manager suddenly thrust into a CTO role. He’s immediately faced with daily fires, a broken IT organization and an already years-late “do or die-save the company” project way off the rails. I’ve started this one already, and so far it’s very entertaining. A plus is that it’s available as an audiobook.
