DevOps Books

This is a list of books that address DevOps directly or topics related. For a similar lists, check out the books listed on this Goodreads List or Ben Rockwood's list.

This list is broken down into books that address the more culture questions of DevOps and those books that address technical practices that are typically embraced by DevOps practitioners. There is also a section for related books that are not necessarily DevOps specific but might prove helpful.

If there is a book you feel that should be on this list and isn't, let me know either by sending an email or sending a link on Twitter @TriangleDevOps and I'll consider adding it.


These books focus on the culture side of DevOps: the why and how.
