Day 22 - DevOps: Where Are We Now (part 2)


This article is part two of a two part series by [Brandon Burton][solarce] which explores what [DevOps][devops] is and why it matters, where it has come since Brandon's article in July, and where you should be looking if you want to be involved.

Part two focuses on where DevOps has come since July and where you should be looking if you want to be involved.

What's happened since July

Back in July, I wrote an article entitled DevOps (and Reliam) and why it matters which covered the idea of CAMS, discussed briefly where Reliam sees DevOps fitting into its business, and highlighted a number of resources for following with growth of DevOps. Things have been very busy since then. There has been an explosion of blogs, articles, conferences, user groups, and online discussion about DevOps.

Where to go next

So now that you've digested all the awesome DevOps content that's been cranked out since July, you're probably wondering where you should be looking so you can keep up on all the awesome content that's going to be produced in the future. I'm happy to share all the places I'm watching, which span your usual collection of blogs, podcasts, mailing lists, and Twitter.
