In 2018, the Open Source DevOps team helped produce two amazing guides to help advance our DevOps practices.

The Ultimate DevOps Hiring Guide

In April, we released The Ultimate DevOps Hiring Guide. It’s a wonderful collection of advice, tactics, and information about the state of DevOps hiring for both job seekers and hiring managers.
