XebiaLabs Welcomes Gene Kim!

Seriously, who in the DevOps world hasn’t read The Phoenix Project, or maybe even waited in a long line at the last DevOps Enterprise Summit for a signed copy of The DevOps Handbook? So it is with great pleasure that we at XebiaLabs welcome Gene Kim as Strategic Advisor to the Board of Directors.
