DevOps'ish

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

157: Kubernetes, BPF, container security, re:Invent, PagerDuty, .org debacle, and more

I had a long week with a lot of ups and downs. But, the real downer was delivered on Friday afternoon when I learned my insurance provider had denied a trial run at a new nerve stimulator. I had been talking to friends and family about this new nerve stimulator because it was way less invasive to implant. In a nutshell, the nerve stimulator is synthesized to produce a cancellation signal that keeps the brain from feeling the pain. Read more →

DevOps’ish 157 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 →

156: KubeCon analysis, Kubernetes security, ‘learn-it-alls’, AWX Kubernetes Operator, and more

Editor’s Note: The newsletter passed 4,000 subscribers this week. Thank you to everyone that help spread the word. I’d love to get to 5,000 subscribers as quickly as possible though. If you don’t mind, please ask your coworkers, BFFs, family, and folks on social media to subscribe to DevOps’ish. Y’all keep being awesome! It is worth noting that the metrics-based system I use to help write DevOps’ish has broken. This week, I lost the ability to post to Twitter due to rate limiting of Tweets sent by IFTTT. Read more →

155: Disappointing KubeCon, employee engagement, death of 10x engineer, GitOps, Kubernetes with all the fixins, service mesh, and more

Editor’s Note: The newsletter passed 3,975 subscribers this week. I’d love to end the month at 4,000 subscribers. If you don’t mind, please ask your coworkers, BFFs, and folks on social media to subscribe to DevOps’ish. Y’all stay awesome! I’m exhausted. I tweeted midweek that I likely shortened my lifespan at KubeCon this week and I wasn’t sure why. It was a net negative experience for me. The people are great. Read more →

154: Docker on life support, The Unicorn Project, KubeCon, Helm 3, Adidas DevOps Framework, and more

Editor’s Note: The newsletter passed 3,900 subscribers this week. I’d love to end the month at 4,000 subscribers. If you don’t mind, please ask your coworkers and folks on social media to subscribe to DevOps’ish. Y’all are awesome! The inevitable is finally happening this week. Docker gutted itself to stay alive by selling off the money-making bits of the business to Mirantis. Docker states it’s because they have two distinct businesses and they can only focus on one.

153: The week before KubeCon, KubeKhan is back, PodCTL, Microsoft making moves, GitOps, AWS Savings Plans, OpenTitan, Vitess, and more

Note: DevOps’ish will no longer publish an RSS feed. It’s a business decision at this point. Please subscribe via e-mail. Subscribers seem to be the only metric potential sponsors care about. This change should ensure the long term viability of DevOps’ish. Are you ready for KubeCon? I’m not, but I hope to be by end of day Friday. There are a number of events every night (see Events section). If your calendar isn’t booked and you’re looking for something to do, several sponsors are hosting things across San Diego. Read more →
