The pre-print of our work on SusDevOps: Promoting Sustainability to a First Principle in Software Engineering is now available on ResearchGate: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/376753109_SusDevOps_Promoting_Sustainability_to_a_First_Principle_in_Software_Engineering.
Sustainability is becoming a key property of modern software systems. While there is a substantial and growing body of knowledge on engineering sustainable software, end-to-end frameworks that situate sustainability-related activities within the software delivery lifecycle are missing. In this article, we propose the SusDevOps framework that promotes sustainability to a first principle within a DevOps context. We demonstrate the lifecycle phases and techniques of SusDevOps through the case of a software development startup company.
