[Software Engineering Daily] DevOps Handbook with Gene Kim http://softwareengineeringdaily.com/2016/10/13/devops-handbook-with-gene-kim/
- The intent of the DevOps movement is to get organizations moving faster and more effectively by breaking down siloes, and improving communication. Gene Kim’s book The Phoenix Project illustrated this by telling the fictional story of a company adopting a DevOps mentality. Although that book was fiction, Gene is an experienced engineer, having worked as founder and CTO of Tripwire, a software company that makes security and compliance automation software.
- In his new book The DevOps Handbook, Gene presents a practical companion to The Phoenix Project. Together with his co-authors, Gene has written a guide for how to move an organization toward DevOps, and in this episode we explore some of the topics from his book

[YOW! 2015] Adrian Cockcroft - It's Complicated... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMJymSrKqF4
- What does it mean to be complicated?
- How can we manage complexity when we scale up systems?
- Why do people find it horrifying when the internal complexity of monolithic apps is replaced by a “death star” diagram of the relationships between microservices?
- Are many microservices less complicated than one monolith?
- Why do people expect complex adaptive systems to behave predictably?
- How does complicated relate to intuitive?
- How can small fast release processes reduce risk, speed up teams and reduce costs?
[Rocky Mountain Ruby 2016] Kill "Microservices" before its too late by Chad Fowler https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UKEPd2ipEk
- Keep changing things, even if you don’t need to
- Microservices make it easier to replace than to change
- Unit tests are a design smell (tests optimise for permanence, creates coupling)
- Use metrics instead , esp business metrics. Use alerting around the metrics to perform true testing of the system
- Small projects vs large projects, success vs failure, stay small, go for impermanence
- Microservices is not an architecture and small is not the goal, its health longevity
- Systems that survive are made of components that can change
- If it hurts do it more often
