065: Change, Dropbox, GitHub DDoS, Kubernetes, Docker, and More!

At what point are we going to admit that, like mainframes and COBOL, while history is worth remembering it might not be worth memorializing. Change is a constant in life that we cannot deny. Humanity wouldn’t be roaming the earth and stars if it weren’t for evolution, which at its base is change. Throughout history there have been points in time in which one side said, “no more” and the other said, “status quo”. Much like those in your organization that resist change because, “We’ve always done it this way.” You and your allies must say, “no more” for the betterment of yourself, your team, and your organization. Cast off the past, remember it but do not grip on to it for dear life. Do this to not only improve things around you but to advance civilization as a whole.

On Securing the Kubernetes Dashboard by Joe Beda of Heptio

GitHub Survived the Biggest DDoS Attack Ever Recorded: 1.35 terabits per second of traffic. This isn’t the 90s, folks. Firewall your systems for God’s sake!
