Praise for Continuous Delivery Blueprint
"Technology advancements in cloud infrastructure, containerization, architecture, and automation are finally making it possible to implement a reliable continuous delivery process and build DevOps best practices. This book starts with an overview, and finishes with a detailed recipe on how to utilize modern technologies and processes to build efficient and reliable change management in a company.

"Max's book came in right on time as we are in the midst of developing of our Managed Service Offering here at GridGain Systems. As I was reviewing the draft, it became pretty clear that this is a much more canonical and in-depth look at the modern DevOps and development processes than most other books or online resources can provide. The book covers a wide swath of material, but in the end, it manages to deliver a comprehensive and well thought-out picture of a modern software development process."

The principles laid out in this book provide us with a roadmap to accomplish these goals."
