Editorial Reviews

Review

"DevOps for the Desperate is a short, approachable guided tour of a few core tools in the software operations toolkit. Structured as a set of hands-on tutorials in topics like system administration basics, configuration tools like Ansible and Vagrant, and orchestration tools like Kubernetes, this book covers a lot of ground quickly. The focus is very much on the practical, rather than the philosophy of DevOps. Don't expect to use this as your sole reference on DevOps topics, but this is worthwhile as a gentle starting point for the absolute beginner to software operations."
—Laura Nolan, Slack

"A very useful book. . . . it would give any competent developer a good grasp of how to use the tools commonly found in DevOps. Recommended."
—Kay Ewbank, I-Programmer

"Zero-to-hero in one guide."
—td, Amazon Reviewer

5.0 out of 5 stars Super accessible
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 22, 2022
This is a great book for picking up DevOps principles though hands-on examples. It starts simple with the basics, but you end up building out some really modern deployments in Kubernetes. This will get you to the finish line of whatever you're building quickly, and even helps support you after with the observability section.

Everything the DevOps and SRE teams understand deeply is covered here for a software engineer to understand. It will help you interact with the teams you work with, and understand what they're talking about. And if you are the DevOps/SRE team yourself, this will keep you moving!
