DevOps Exchange: An Evening with Gene Kim

Where to start...!

Thank you to every single one of you who joined us last night as we spent the evening with one of the most influential icons in the DevOps industry, Gene Kim! One of the greatest hours the DevOps Exchange has ever witnessed.

We tuned in on this virtual event and listened to the master of DevOps and author of The Phoenix Project share his ideas behind his newly released book ‘Wiring the Winning Organization’ which was released in November 2023.

In his 45-minute talk, Gene delivered an impressive performance covering a multitude of topics, including;


  • Examples of his biggest achievements and projects during the past 3 years whilst he was writing ‘Wiring the Winning Organization’

  • The current state of DevOps market, including key predictions for the year ahead

  • How organisations win by using three mechanisms to slowify, simplify, and amplify

  • Why these mechanisms mentioned in his recent book are applicable to the DevOps community today

  • Real life case studies of how organisations have successfully implemented slowify, simplify, and amplify (Netflix, Amazon and Adidas)

  • Finally, an explanation of the ‘magic’ which winning organisations have

As you can imagine, there were plenty of questions on this talk from our audience, so we ended the evening with a pretty amazing q & a session. Thanks to all those who contributed and if you missed it, the good news is you can watch on-demand on our award winning Youtube Channel.

A huge thank you to Gene for joining us at the DevOps Exchange (for the 2nd time), we hope you enjoyed the talk as much as we did, and we hope you came away with some real takeaways you can put into action within your organisation.

Where can I buy the book?

Gene’s book ‘Wiring the Winning Organisation’ is available now to purchase on Amazon here, so please make sure you grab yourselves a copy and get stuck in!
