On my journey into DevOps, I have fully embraced the power of pictures. Pictures help describe how we work, how our work flows, and what’s actually flowing where. You see, in DevOps empathy and collaboration are core requirements for success. When placing a picture at the center of the conversation, the discussion is not about people and who screwed up…it’s about a system that works great or needs improvement.

Last year, we jump-started thousands of DevOps journeys. And we validated many more. We did this by publishing 31 DevOps and Continuous Delivery reference architectures. These reference sheets have now been viewed more than 92,000 times. Some are simple, some complex. But all from the real world.

In our pictures, we offered practitioners a glimpse into patterns, flows, and decisions that others were making to help them improve their own work. The pictures revealed work on premises, in the cloud, and the use of open source applications. They revealed good decisions, bad decisions, and confirmations of work already done. But more importantly, they were helpful.

Join me to learn how pictures have become one of the most popular reference and empathy tools used across the DevOps community.
