Scrum and Agile for devops

Posted on 16. Jul, 2013 by ger in Agile, Guides, Scrum


Devops engineers were part of two recent Agile and Scrum training workshops I ran in Dublin. Here’s some resources that you might find useful if you’re coming to agile from a devops perspective.

Blogs and blog posts

Two of the best blogs I found are the Agile admin and Agile Web Operations. The Agile admin has a good post describing Scrum from an ops perspective. Some devops teams combine Scrum for longer term projects and Kanban for shorter term work. This blog post I wrote recently summarizes a great article by Jim Coplien about the linkages between Kanban and Scrum.


These books include sections on agile devops

  • Scott W. Ambler; Mark Lines, Disciplined Agile Delivery.
  • Paul Swartout, Continuous Delivery and DevOps
  • Michael Hüttermann, DevOps for Developers
  • Jez Humble; David Farley, Continuous Delivery: Reliable Software Releases through Build, Test, and Deployment Automation

Try Goshido, our collaboration & project management platform. Goshido is so flexible it can be used for Scrum, Lean and projects with traditional work-breakdown plans. It’s great for both long and short term devops projects.
