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. Here's another chance to shine! As always, thank you for reading! —Chris
