Gordon Haff, a member of Red Hat’s cloud product team, hosts a blog and podcast dedicated to cloud and computing topics. He’s an expert in the field and has written tons of research, offered product and marketing strategy advice, and is frequently quoted by popular publications on a wide range of IT topics. He’s kind of a rock star.
At Summit this year, he’s been writing (and talking) about DevOps. Check out his posts over at Connection, particularly this hot topic pair:
Getting started with DevOps (for Devs) at Red Hat Summit
If you didn’t make it to the Decomposing DevOps: Understanding How to Get Started session that Haff hosted with Ansible developer Dylan Silva, this is the next best thing.
It examines the most important principles for developers starting out with DevOps processes, including automation, metrics, and modularity, and gives excellent advice through metaphor.
What are the right metrics for DevOps?
If you’re ready to dig deeper into one of the principles explored in the previous post, this is where it’s at. Haff discusses the traditional measurements and metrics that app development uses–and why they’re not all appropriate for a DevOps pipeline.
He also looks at the questions you might be asking, and the audiences who might have differing goals for the same processes.
