Each chapter starts out with very clearly described reasoning for the architecture, then followed by working examples you can type in using various tools such as Vagrant or Docker. I've already tried several, and this really enhances learning as opposed to just reading theory.
Sure, there are a few grammatically awkward sentences, but I utterly forgive him since the content is so excellent.
After reading this, I think it would be misleading to put DevOps Engineer on your resume, although you could get away with if they don't ask too many questions. You will likely use this as a guide for further and deeper study.
I strongly recommend an index. Either my book was defective or there is absolutely NO index at all.
Also, there are some outdated references that do not work OOB that the reader must muddle through to figure out. Which can be good and bad. Again, occurrences are limited but frequent enough that it's slightly annoying because sometimes it's nice that things just work.
DevOps 2.0 Tookit first explains why it's important to automate your build, tests, and deployment. Then breaks down the individual steps. First by doing them one by one from the command line, then automating those steps in scripts so they are reproducible and can scale in different environments.
As someone who is new, this book does a fantastic job providing an overview of how the steps were done in the past, some of the tools that were common and why they've been superseded with more modern versions, and why you should use them.
DevOps 2.0 takes a hands-on approach that you follow along as you progress through the book. All the examples are downloaded from Github and run inside a VM so it's easy to see what he's doing and make changes to test your knowledge for how things actually work.
Not going to lie, it's a lot of work learning how it all works. Especially for someone without a particularly strong linux background. However it's well worth the effort and you'll use these skills for the rest of your career.
Have always hated advanced building, configuration and deployment and was very happy to throw my projects over the wall and let others deal with the details. This book helps to take responsibility and control over the process. In doing so deployment has become an extremely reliable, repeatable, and an incredibly painless process. Therefore we can update new smaller versions insanely fast with confidence. It's almost revolution in development.
I highly recommend this book for anyone that hasn't done CI/CD before and is looking for someone to hold your hand to get you started.
