I was unfamiliar with itilblues - thanks!
Robert, you're too kind. I am going back to post regularly again.
My list is the following
Kamu:Uniting DevOps and ITSM - community -Google+
I have been a long fan off techwell ,very relevant and useful content.
I went to Techwell, as I was not familiar with it. I think they have a lot of stuff, but the impression I get is that unless you are a paying subscriber, you are not going to be able to access much.
Thanks anyways! Jason
Firstly anyone who is walking into ITSM, have fun and be brave :)
In terms of places to hang out I would strongly recommend
- The Axelos Communities - of course :)
- The ITSM Review
- Back2ITSM Facebook Group
- The IT Skeptic
- The LinkedIn Groups - search for itsm related there are numerous to visit
As your starter for 10. These are all great resources and will allow you to branch off into other areas. There are many fantastic authors out there also but as a very small starter list I would thoroughly recommend
Barclay Ray, Stuart Rance, Kevin Holland, Martin Thompson, Ivor McFarlane, Noel Bruton, Ken Gonzalez, Gene Kim, Charles Araujo, Anthony Orr, Carlos Casanova, Daniel Breston ....and many others.
The LinkedIn Groups are a great way to get up-to-date info, but sometimes they get a bit off track worrying about who is trying to tuck advertising into their posts. Has anyone else noticed that?
JD - I have. If you are not looking for it or cognizant of the possibility, it is easy to take some inputs as truth, when in fact, it is just marketing. Of course that is their intent, but again, something of whcih everyone should be aware.
Great point - thanks JD,
