Phoenix Project discussion questions

Trying gist as the channel here, rather than a full repo which seems too heavyweight (but I don’t want to roll these into an existing repo).

Will be updated as the semester progresses.

Note on syllabus. Phoenix Project works well as a semester long read, with 3 chapters per week, assuming 12 active class weeks (semesters are typically 14 weeks, including intro & final).

For full context, the primary text for this class (SEIS664, IT Delivery, Graduate Programs in Software at University of St. Thomas, Minnesota) is the Digital Practitioner Body of Knowledge ( The class is "flipped" and class sessions are primarily lab (not lecture), with a strong hands-on emphasis (Linux, containers, cloud, infracode, etc).

Song for Britannia (Reap the Fruits)
View gist:c68e0bddd9217ebcc8a113649fc093b5
I wrote this song in 1993, in response to a round of UK handwringing about its historical decline
(now laughably minor in contrast to Brexit.)
It has a bit of a reggae beat. If someone is interested I could share chords & melody.
Tears from across the sea
Cry the kingdom that used to be
Your sun is going down forevermore
Losing faith and losing heart
Traditions sacred torn apart
You can’t perform that action at this time.
