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. I don’t know how I can top this week. But, I tend to compete with myself; I’m sure I’ll come up with something.

CoreOS is being acquired by Red Hat for $250 million! However, people in the community are holding judgment on if this is a good thing. Container Linux will stick around. But, the Openshift team fired off an ill-advised tweet that was later removed. The tweet stated, “With the acquisition of CoreOS, Red Hat engineers now Lead or Co-Lead 15 Kubernetes SIGs.” As Joseph Jacks pointed out, “This should be a call for broader community participation to avoid single-vendor concentration.” I couldn’t agree more. I now believe Google and Red Hat have WAY too much power in the Kubernetes ecosystem. But, It’s better than just Google OR Red Hat having too much power.
