Is there one book you would recommend for someone working in a DevOps team?
The book you must read is ‘The Phoenix Project’. This is like ‘The Goal’. It is a business novel. Keep in mind that the environment is enterprise IT, not product development. I haven’t seen a lot of testers write about enterprise IT. So not sure if this will resonate.
Don’t expect to see any insights related to testing, i.e., the KanerBachBolton type of testing.
I didn’t find most of the other books exciting, like the agile books. There is a lot of tech.
The Google SRE book is readable and free: https://landing.google.com/sre/sre-book/toc/index.html
That is different from ‘The Phoenix Project’, it is focused on product companies like Google, Netflix.
Even the SRE book has a lot of tech. Unless you work with it, it is difficult to relate. The Phonenix project is a narrative, and I found it easier to understand.
One last note - for most people new to DevOps, testing in DevOps is focused on test automation. That is a mistake. Don’t start with that premise when you read.
