#DevOpsFriday5 Round-Up 5: Where Do You Like to Go to Get a DevOps Hit?

Posted by Tejinder Sehgal on Thu, Jun 18, 2015 @ 15:06 PM

It's been over a year since we published our first #DevOpsFriday5 and to celebrate we've been publishing collections of our favourite answers to each of the questions - and have launched a whole new set for the twelve months ahead. This week we're tackling the last question from the original series, Question Five:

Where do you like to go to get a DevOps hit?

DevOps has been growing in popularity since the first DevOpsDays (over five years ago) and with this rapid growth the number of DevOps content sources has also increased like topsy, which led us to wonder where would someone new to DevOps start their search.

So we asked the enthusiasts participating in #DevOpsFriday5 where they go for their DevOps hit thereby building a list of resources (now neatly summarised here!) to help people new to the subject, or following it avidly, get started and keep up with the latest thinking.

Throughout the year we recieved many different responses, many of which we ourselves hadn't come across yet (so thanks guys!). Below is a list containing links to these sources. Be DevOpstastic!
