The Book Club

The very first IT Revolution Book Club featured Team Topologies.

For our second book club, we featured The Unicorn Project with Gene Kim.

Now, we're excited to continue with Agile Conversations.

Here’s how the book club will go:

  • We’ll read guide you through each chapter via email one week prior to the event.
  • During the event (June 1-9) we'll post daily discussion questions on a private Slack channel where you can join conversations with your fellow book club members.
  • The author's will join you and your fellow book club members on Slack each day to answer questions, expand on their writing, and offer additional guidance and learning.
  • We'll host two, live AMA's with the author's on June 1st and June 9th.
  • Plus, stay tuned for extra giveaways and goodies during the club!

Engagement is the most critical element to our book club. Anyone interested in joining should plan on actively participating in all book club discussions.

The Publisher

IT Revolution’s mission is to bridge the divide between the front lines of organizational digital transformation and the agents of change helping to deliver better value through software faster, safer, and happier.

At IT Revolution, we work together with industry thought leaders to expand the dynamic repository of knowledge available to the technology and business community.

At our DevOps Enterprise Summit, we bring the community face-to-face with innovative thinkers and practitioners in the midst of transformation.

And now, we’re thrilled to introduce a new opportunity that brings together the DevOps Enterprise community and the breadth of learning available in the books we’ve published—the IT Revolution Book Club.
