Epic Failures in DevSecOps: Volunteer Proofreaders Wanted

Sep 7, 2018 10:59:00 AM By Mark Miller All Authors - Epic Failures v01

As you might have heard through the grapevine, DevSecOps Days is publishing the first book in a new series, "Epic Failures in DevSecOps". Each chapter focuses on a personal or industry experience that turned into an epic failure.

Currently, chapter overviews are available for "We are ALL Special Snowflakes" by Chris Roberts, "The Security Person That is not Invited into the Room" by Caroline Wong, "The Problem with Success" by DJ Schleen, "Strategic Asymmetry - Leveling the Playing Field Between Defenders and Adversaries" by Chetan Conikee, "The Threat Modeling That Made Us Less Secure" by Edwin Kwan, "Red Team the Culture" by Fabian Lim, 'The Biggest Problem We have is “DevOps”' by Aubrey Stearn and "The Unicorn Rodeo" by Stefan Streichsbier.

Why the book?

We want you to be able to read through a story and understand the pitfalls, what went wrong, why it went wrong and what lessons were learned. Hopefully, this will help as you are evaluating your DevOps/DevSecOps initiatives. 

The format of the chapters is consistent:

  • Introductory overview
  • The story
  • The outcome
  • Lessons Learned
  • Author bio

Proofreaders Wanted

If this sounds interesting, please sign up in the box on the right as a volunteer proofreader. Everyone who signs up will receive a free, pdf version of the book when it is released. When you register as a volunteer, this will put you on the notification list as DevSecOps Days projects become available.

Call for proofreader volunteers ends Sunday, September 9. 

Thanks in advance for your support of our project.
