Chef Style Kung Fu is open source. We have a GitHub repository that includes a presentation you can give, or ask people to watch, which explains what DevOps is, and defines a style of practice that comes from the lived experience of many DevOps professionals. It is a collaborative space, where all practitioners of the style can come together to create a reference for how to build up their own DevOps Kung fu, and teach others how to improve theirs.
