gets you into the mindset of creating repeatable installations
on November 5, 2016
4.5 stars - 5 because it's great, 4 because it's a little out of date. This is a good book that gets you into the mindset of creating repeatable installations, and systems that are relatively easy to deploy. 90 minute to full day operations can be scripted to become 1-hour, hands-off installations and deployments. Small network-based deployments can be turned into larger virtual-machine-based deployments. With the rise of containerization and automated provisioning, this book reads a little bit dated, but is an important part of the library.
