DevOps’ish 183

General 9-11, war, and mental health warnings This is hell week for me every year. The week before 9-11-2001, I lost my best friend. At the same time, mourning his loss in North Carolina still (I was stationed at Langley AFB, VA). I woke up early the morning after leaving the mountains and the funeral activities in Hendersonville. I was at my parents’ house. They’d taken time off the week before dealing with my dad’s mother’s (my grandmother’s) passing. Read more →

DevOps’ish 183 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. It's a shame when I have to choose between having too many links or someone's special thing getting featured in the newsletter. Read more →

Welcome! Your environment makes up so much of who you are in real life. I often wonder if your work environment reflects how your infrastructure will look. If you’re okay with satisfying that 80% use case, does your infra look like AWS with hundreds of services some of which are quite stable and others not so much? Or if you the perfect be the enemy of the good and be like a lot of companies and spend a lot of time spinning their wheels waiting for the right thing to happen. Read more →

DevOps’ish 181: Heptio people abandoning VMWare’s ship, DevOps titles, Camille Fournier on management, plain text email is no longer a good development tool, GitOps, and more

Welcome! It would appear the clock has run out for all the Heptio folks to get their payouts from the VMware acquisition. A few Kubernetes contributors are jumping ship from VMware. Four in a little over a week is nothing short of a sign, though. These aren’t the kinds of folks who like to hang out in big corporate orgs and feel like cogs in the machine. They want to feel like they’re making an impact and see the value in their work. Read more →

DevOps’ish 180

Welcome! What a week it was. KubeCon EU 2020 was this past week. And amongst all the announcements there was a lot of activity and interaction too. Two things I realized this week were, first, y’all are really bubble gumming and duct taping clusters together into production like it’s no big deal just waiting to be bit by something. Second, the Kubernetes community is really an amazing bunch of people, in general. Read more →

DevOps’ish 179

Welcome! This week I move a bunch of web sites off the .io top-level domain. Kubernetes News is one such site. Why should you move off your .io domains. Well, newly minted AWS Developer Advocated, Justin Garrison beat me to it (buy his book). But regardless, there’s enough reason and evidence out there, that we as an industry should no longer condone the use and of a top level domain for the abuse of a people. Read more →
