I read Antifragile Systems and Teams. Entirely, this book is DevOps book, I thought. This book also short. So I just left some lines in this article and I’ll leave here.
Anyway, do you heard Antifragile? I hadn’t known the word before.
Let refer the Taleb’s word from a book.
“Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty. Yet, in spite of the ubiquity of the phenomenon, there is no word for the exact opposite of fragile. Let us call it antifragile. Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better”
As the word said, antifragile is anti + fragile. But it isn’t not fragile. It’s more robust and resilient thing. And this book tried to show how to build such systems/teams, especially software development industry.
Lately, I believe DevOps methodology became common. We can imagen agile, flexible, robust and autonomous things. And this book also challenges to show use cases and examples for it.
What I surprised was I saw QA(Quality Assurance) related engineers often appeared. I thought this kind of books shows some ideal story, but this book was more close to real DevOps story. I also read DevOps and Testing books as same as this book.
This book is too short. Only 20 pages in PDF and they were summarised good enough things. So, if you have an opportunity to read it, let’s read it.
See you happy DevOps? 🙂
