062: Saddling Up, Mergers, Deaths, What’s Up with 18F, Chaos Engineering, Performance Impact of Meltdown and More!

This was a very interesting week for me. I participated in a chronic pain treatment study at the Ann Arbor VA Hospital early Tuesday morning. The experience, while odd, went incredibly well. Today is the first day I have felt noticeable pain which is likely due to managing Max at my nephew’s birthday date. If you know me, you know this is an incredible feat. On Thursday, I attended a brand new Kubernetes Meetup in Downtown Detroit. Read more →

My Life is Dope and I Do Dope Shit

061: 🔥 Week, CoreOS Acquisition, 20 Years of Open Source, Heptio’s Undistribution, and…

I’ve had an absolutely amazing week! I was named a Cloud Native Computing Foundation Ambassador. My friend, Chris Bailey, and I recorded an episode of Techtown’s Discussing DevOps Details (3D) Podcast. I spoke at the Orchestructure January 2018 Meetup about Golang accelerating DevOps. Last, but certainly not least, I was named an opensource.com 2018 People’s Choice Award winner. I also booked travel for Open Source 101 in Raleigh and DevOpsDays Charlotte. Read more →

Merry Christmas!

055: Rough Week, DevOps Culture, Kubernetes, and More!

I’m going to keep the monologue pretty short this week. I have some lightly scoped out ideas to share in 2018 though so don’t worry, lots more to come. It has been a rough week in the Short household and I’m mentally spent. But, there was a ton DevOps, Cloud Native, and open source of news this week. I hope you had a Happy Hanukkah or Happy Festivus and I wish all of you a Merry Christmas. Read more →

051: Highs and Lows, Thankfulness, Kubernetes, tmux, and More

I have been through the highest of highs and lowest of lows this week. But, Thanksgiving is an interesting time to reflect. What are you thankful for? How do you want to finish out the year? I am beyond thankful for an incredibly supportive family. Through all the ups and downs of this past week, there has been a steadfast source of support and happiness springing eternal from those we moved to Michigan to be closer to. Read more →

046: Docker Reverses Course on Kubernetes, Scoble Sucks, HQ2, Happy HTTPS, Lambda…

Is DevOps dying? I’ve had this thought for a few weeks now. Since DevOpsDays Detroit when Richard I. Cook, M.D. sat shaking his head at Gene Kim on stage in a panel discussion titled, “DevOps, Safety, And Lean”. Like a concept twisted by bad marketing DevOps has become almost a cult. There are those that practice it religiously and others that cannot adhere to every tenet every moment of every day but do try to “DevOps”. Read more →
