One big piece of news from the CNCF this week was Kubernetes graduating. “To move from incubation to graduate, projects must demonstrate thriving adoption, a documented, structured governance process, and a strong commitment to community success and inclusivity.” One questioned I was asked by a few people was what does graduating from CNCF actually mean? I asked around because it wasn’t really clear to me either when the TOC started voting on it. Read more β†’

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”. Read more β†’

I’m fresh off the plane from DevOpsDays Charlotte 2018 when I’m writing this. I have to say a HUGE thank you to the organizers, sponsors, and speakers. The venue was beyond amazing.

I listened to a very impactful podcast on Wednesday while walking my best buddy beast (happy birthday, Sunny). On the podcast, the speaker asked the audience five questions. One of those questions was, “When was the last time you changed your mind?” This question struck me. When was the last time I changed my mind? What motivated me to make that change?

This was a very interesting week for me. I participated in a chronic pain treatment study at the Ann Arbor VA Hospital early Tuesday morning. The experience, while odd, went incredibly well. Today is the first day I have felt noticeable pain which is likely due to managing Max at my nephew’s birthday date. If you know me, you know this is an incredible feat. On Thursday, I attended a brand new Kubernetes Meetup in Downtown Detroit. Read more β†’
