Share your fav Books for Dev/Ops

Lately I've been into reading books vs spending time online browsing short articles about variety of things, one book that I read not too long ago changed my perception of reading books around "I.T" industry and it's called "The Phoenix Project". Book is well written for all type working people in I.T industry, whether you are SRE, Dev, Ops, DevOps, Net Engineer... or QA.

I also like book called LinchPin by Seth Godin.

So what is your fav Book that changed your way of thinking about I.T industry?

Did you find this post useful? Show some love!

You should definitely read The Goal once you've completed The Phoenix Project. There's a great audiobook version of it on Audible that is set up like a radio play :)

My other go-to DevOps books:

and a non-technical book, but super essential for anyone working through changes in an organization, team, or personal: Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard.

DevOps is a broad topic. From my personal book shelf I would recommend (in addition to Matt Stratton's suggestions!)

Also the following additional resources are good for creating highly maintainable and reliable applications:

We wrote an entire article on the same. Here are our picks

  1. The Phoenix Project: A Novel about IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win
