A few months ago I decided to write a post about the lost time associated with the hand-offs between teams. It was relevant to a conversation I wanted to have, and I wanted to order my thoughts before I went into that conversation. That post accidentally became a series of posts, which I’ve listed below.
I’m not an expert at automation and I’m far from being an expert at DevOps. Theses were just a useful exercise for me, so I thought they might be of interest to other people.
- Lost Time
- Reliability and Confidence
- Patching and Upgrading
- You’re only a tweak away!
- Why Automation Sucks
- “Hand-tuning doesn’t scale”
- Keep Your Auditors Happy
- Continuous Improvement and Buying Time For Yourself
- Can’t the cloud do it for you?
- Unplanned Work and Death of Productivity!
- Technical Debt
- Consistent Test Environments
- Reducing the Cost of Failure
- DevOps : Why do you focus on Flow and Automation?
I’m not sure if I’ll write any more, but if I do, I’ll add them to this page.
I’ve added an Automation category to the blog, which I’ve been using to categorise these posts, and other things like my posts about Docker and Vagrant.
