DevOps Simulation - The Phoenix Project  [SIPHX1]


Course topic

We all know the typical IT behaviours and complaints about developers throwing seemingly untested solutions over the wall into production and leaving Operations to pick up the pieces. On the other hand, we hear Development complaining about the barriers put up by Operations that delay deployment, or workload demands placed on developers from IT Operations, such as small updates, fixing issues and applications not working.

In DevOps we talk about ‘Three Ways’.

  • The First Way emphasizes the performance of the entire system, as opposed to the performance of a specific silo. It increases the flow of work from left to right
  • The Second Way is about creating the right to left feedback loops - shift left!
  • The Third Way is about creating a culture that fosters two things: continual experimentation (risk taking and learning) and understanding that repetition and practice is the prerequisite to mastery
