The DevOps Handbook

If you are on a DevOps transformation journey this is not doubt a good a read. It will give you the strength and some material to share with your coworkers.

The book remains quite high level (not too deep in the technologies) so it will give you an overview of DevOps practices and why they’re so powerful.
I would recommend the read to engineers but also to managers that want to understand or rollout DevOps practices to improve organisations.
This is also about creating a better workplace for you and your coworkers.

Book: Fake Work

fake work book

 

This book is really nice. It describes how many people do work that is not actually useful to anyone. People are actually quite smart, even if they are not 100% aware that they are doing fake work they somehow feel it.

Almost nobody wants to do fake work, it is not gratifying that’s why many companies have big turnovers in job positions. The book gives insight and helps defining a strategy to get rid of the wasted time that we spend every day on fake work.

I advise it to anyone, it’s a good read for leaders that want to shape the environments and the culture they live in, and workers that have their part of responsibility in creating the same environment.

My Aikido master told me once: I’ve not created the dojo, everyone each of you has.

Hello world!

Hi there!

My name is Andrea Maruccia and I’m a software developper for many years now. I started with web development but only after a while I finally I found my way: to improve methods and process delivery in various teams.

Recently I’ve lived an awful experience but it has teached me a big lesson. I now decided to be in contact with people that I like, that appreciate me for what I am and for what I give to them, from which I get something nice in return, a bilateral relationship.

I once saw a talk on the internet about devops and one thing the speaker said blew my mind:

If they do not appreciate you, don’t worry someone else will for sure.

I just now realize how true that was, even if deep down I knew it was.

So that’s why I decided to open myself to the world (hello world fits :)), to reach other people whoever wants some guidance on subjects I can help with.

I’ll start with giving a talk on Octopus deploy in the devops italia 2015 event. I will be talking about how you can improve your deployments though automation, on how Octopus helps you in the intent.

If you’re interested to contact me do not hesitate, If you’ve some colaboration in mind do not hesitate, I will be more than happy to find out if we can do something about it.

Cheers!
