DevOps'ish

DevOps, Cloud Native, Open Source, and the ‘ish between.

This week’s introduction is brought to you by Corey Quinn.

DevOps’ish 149 Notes

Every week I comb through 1000s of articles that get curated down to about 100 URLs eligible to be in DevOps'ish. Those URLs land in a notes file that end up being source material for the newsletter. Being in that group of ~100 links is an achievement and should be lauded. In the immortal words of former US Vice President Joe Biden, "This is a big fscking deal." It's a shame when I have to choose between having too many links or someone's special thing getting featured in the newsletter. Read more →

148: SysAdvent signup, Corey Quinn isn’t irrelevant, testing in prod, Kubernetes Controllers, VMware Tanzu, and more

The ever-shifting sands of newsletter writing, these are the days of our DevOps’ish… There are no paying sponsors this week. It’s not a problem but, it is a little discouraging. The best part about being a disabled veteran is that I have a funding source for this newsletter until I decide to stop. But, this newsletter does take a significant amount of effort, time, and energy. It’s nice to be compensated for that. Read more →

147: Strategy is hard, the misaligned middle, calling bullshit on Matt Asay, the death of Chef, Docker’s impending doom, AnsibleFest, and more

I used to think of industry analysts as 100% worthless to the broader technology world. After meeting Chris Gardner from Forrester, some of the good folks from RedMonk, and working with Red Hat’s Analyst Relations team, I’ve warmed up to Analysts a little. They serve an important function that a lot of us forget: Tactical efficiency does not replace strategic efficacy… DevOps’ish Last Week’s Top Five Seth Vargo says hell no—puts Chef on ICE The real cost of not wearing makeup at the office DevOps terms: 10 advanced concepts to know 30 Linux Permissions Exercises for Sysadmins On the occasion of leaving Google Alert Automation for your Cloud Infrastructure SPONSORED See the top ten → Read more →

146: Seth Vargo says hell no—puts Chef on ICE, Kubernetes 1.16, Linus Torvalds on kernel development, fluffy clouds, DevOps terms, and more

Just when you thought a toxic, old, white guy with lousy hygiene was going to dominate the news this week, in walks Seth Vargo. On Thursday, Seth Vargo, a former Chef employee, learned something he wasn’t comfortable with about code he’d written. Seth discovered Chef had an active contract with the US Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Seth then did something rather extraordinary. He yanked his code (including chef-sugar) from GitHub and RubyGems. Read more →
