Every week I comb through 1000s of articles that get curated down to somewhere between 60 to 100 URLs eligible for DevOps'ish. Those URLs land in this notes file that ends up being source material for the newsletter. Being in that group of links is an achievement of its own and should be lauded.

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 Short

The following links and/or notes accompany the corresponding issue of DevOps'ish.


It is worth pointing out 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. I’m looking for a solution but, to be honest, I’d like to build an open source tool to handle my DIY Buffer using IFTTT. But, I don’t have the skills to do it nor the time, even if I did. If you’re interested in working on such a project, let me know.
