Reading, The Phoenix Project…

Last two months were exciting & pleasantly busy which took toll on my new year (2017) resolution to blog more regularly & consistently. It also broke the rhythm of reading books more often and as much as I can. To add to this my new kindle (Thanks to my wife Smita for an advance anniversary gift) was staring at me daily for attention :-). So… I decided to start reading something immediately.

I am currently working on revising my training content & demos for PowerShell DSC (Desired State Configuration). Sometime back I had heard recommendation from Jeffrey Snover @jsnover about this book titled The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win

Having followed Jeffrey over these years it was easy decision to pick a book from my wish list. I was lucky to find kindle edition available at very good price. I grabbed it immediately and started reading it. After going through Wikipedia, the Introduction and Chapter 1, sounds like… its going to an interesting read for sure with some fictionalization of real world problems and solutions.

Hope to finish this soon to get myself a new knowledge/perspective on DevOps, Continuous Delivery and related areas. And of course pass that to the participants during my upcoming batches.
