DevOps in a Box

My long time fantasy has been to demonstrate an entire CI/CD pipeline with continuous operations of applications to discuss behavior driven operations and testing as monitors.

The call for this happened over and over at DevOpsDays to answer: how does one learn DevOps, practice site reliability engineering, or have a full application lifecycle environment?

So let’s create a minimal viable product BTD scenario of my DevOps Automation system, extend it to prefix Governance and suffix Management, and then drive maturity to illustrate and discuss best practices. I’ve been discussing this with my Nutanix colleagues @mjasted and @andytschmid for a while, so here is the outline and plan of action!

DevOps BTD Pattern for Continuous Deployment

What happens when you find the same macro and micro pattern in your automation diagram? You reinforce your goals to improve code flow and service design on the way to test driven development!
