I love beta programs because you get a view inside the development cycle and have an intimate understanding of what is coming next. What was interesting to me was taking this book in “Early Release” format, and it was as exciting as any product I’ve previewed!
People, process, and technology, when put together properly, are the trifecta for great application development and even organizational development. The authors bring the concepts out very effectively in the book with a great narrative, and tips along the way to lead the reader to think, and apply great techniques in lean methodologies.
For those in systems development, or systems administration, or in business and management teams, this book will be a key resource in the library in my opinion. As a long time fan of Jez Humble and his work, this collaboration with Barry O’Reilly and Joanne Molesky is a must read for me and my team.
Bravo O’Reilly, and thank you to Jez, Barry, and Joanne for this great resource. I can’t wait to see it in its final print!
The book is slated for a release in September 2014, so pre-order now at Amazon by clicking on the link below, and I hope that you enjoy the book as much as I have 🙂
