DevOps Q&A with Gene Kim

We’ve recently welcomed two new additions to our Advisory Board – with Nicole Forsgren and John Willis joining Gene Kim and Gary Gruver as Electric Cloud’s strategic advisors.

As we set to work with each of the advisors, we also took the opportunity to pick their brains about all-things-DevOps. We’re excited to share the tips and insights from these DevOps luminaries in the third installment of this short Q&A series – this time with Gene Kim! (you can read the previous Q&A posts with Nicole Forsgren and Gary Gruver.)

DevOps Q&A – with Gene Kim:

Gene Kim is a multiple award winning CTO, researcher and author. Gene was founder and CTO of Tripwire, he is the founder of IT Revolution and co-author of three books, including “The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win”, “The Visible Ops Handbook” and “The DevOps Handbook”. Gene has been studying high performing technology organizations since 1999. He is a huge fan of IT operations, and how it can enable developers to maximize throughput of features from “code complete” to “in production,” without causing chaos and disruption to the IT environment. He has worked with some of the top Internet companies on improving deployment flow and increasing the rigor around IT operational processes. Electric Cloud partnered with Gene and IT Revolution to found the DevOps Enterprise Summit – which has become the premier industry event since its launch. Gene has also been part of the team behind Puppet State of DevOps Report for four years, along with Jez Humble and Dr. Nicole Forsgren.
