Book review - Web Operations

17 Aug 2010

I just finished reading a great book - Web Operations by John Allspaw and Jesse Robbins. This isn't a book of code samples; it's a book to make you think more about system administration in the large, infrastructure as code, and other big picture items for the web systems that we deal with today. Some notes:

Obviously, I heartily recommend this book. If you've done much devops at all you'll find yourself enjoying (and sympathizing with the folks suffering through) the anecdotes, and you'll come away from this book a list of things to do to lower the stress level around running your web app. Enjoy!
