- Testimonials

"The content was thought provoking and the production quality was superb. I've not done this kind of training previously but it really lends itself to working in a small group, talking through the impact to your organisation / circumstances."

Dan Sims

Associate Director, Cloud at EBRD

"DevOps is great, but how do real-world organizations actually structure themselves to do it? Team Topologies provides a practical set of templates for addressing the key DevOps question that other guides leave as an exercise for the student."
