Join Ernest Mueller for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of DevOps Foundations: Lean and Agile.
- And that's our course on Lean and Agile in a DevOps context. - We covered the basics of both Agile and Lean, and then walked you through a sample DevOps transformation based on our experiences using those techniques. - So, where can you go to learn more? - First, you may want to check out our course on DevOps Foundations, and the other courses in that series here in the library. They cover more specific practice areas of DevOps and incorporate these Lean and Agile principles. - And there's no end to the number of great Lean and Agile books that cover the topic in greater depth.
Mike Orzen's Lean IT, the Poppendieck's Lean Software Development book, Goldratt's The Goal, and Eric Ries' Lean Startup are fundamentals. Also, Lean Enterprise by continuous delivery guru, Jez Humble, among others. - And, of course, The Phoenix Project, which is modeled on The Goal, but it's DevOps specific, and the DevOps Handbook, which is the single best reference to DevOps, and sprinkled with Lean and Agile. - There's a lot of Agile training out there in specific methodologies like Scrum, XP, and Kanban.
Also, make sure and follow Dominica DeGrandis from LeanKit. She's the foremost expert on Kanban in the DevOps community and we've both learned a lot from her. - Yep, Dominica is great. I always think fondly of the earlier DevOpsDays conferences where she used to hold sessions on the Kanban game. Speaking of which, DevOpsDays is a great conference that you should consider going to, especially if it's happening in your city. - And, of course, theagileadmin.com. We like to write about all these topics. I did a blog series on Scrum for Operations, which you might find useful.
