DevOps notes

Recently I’ve been reeding two books:

Four Types of Work in IT

  1. Business Projects: Customers are paying us; managed
  2. Internal Projects: Lots of inter-dependant tasks; often not managed
  3. Operational Change: Little tasks
  4. Unplanned Work: Highest priority, disruptive

The Five Ideals

  1. Locality and Simplicity: You should not depend on work done by others
  2. Focus, Flow, and Joy: You should be able to concentrate on your work
  3. Improvement of Daily Work: Pay down technical dept
  4. Psychological Safety: No fear to talk
  5. Customer Focus: core vs. context
