Many moons ago, Jonny coined the term “Stelligentsia” to refer to our small, merry band of technologists at the time. Times have changed and the team has grown by a factor of 10 but we strive to live up to the name as all things DevOps and AWS continues to evolve.

We find the best way to do this is not only to continually learn and improve, but to also share our knowledge with others – a core value at Stelligent. We believe that you are more valuable when sharing knowledge with as many people as possible than keeping it locked inside your head only letting paying customers access to the principles and practices derived from these experiences.

Over the years at Stelligent, we’ve published many resources that are available to everyone. In this post, we do our best to list some of the blogs, articles, open source projects, refcardz, books, and other publications authored by Stelligentsia. If we listed everything, it’d likely be less useful, so we did our best to curate the publications listed in this post. We hope this collection provides a valuable resource to you and your organization.

Books

  • Continuous Integration: Improving Software Quality and Reducing Risk – Through more than forty CI-related practices using application examples in different languages, readers learn that CI leads to more rapid software development, produces deployable software at every step in the development lifecycle, and reduces the time between defect introduction and detection, saving time and lowering costs.
