093: Hard Week, Ansible, Kubernetes, Nathen Harvey, InfoSec, and More

Join the DevOps’ish group on Telegram to discuss this week’s latest newsletter! https://devopsi.sh/telegram This week was REALLY hard. The past two weeks are the anniversary of the worst two week span of my life. In 2001, I was working like a dog at Langley AFB, VA. It was great work but the hours were LONG. With a normal shift, training, and other fun outside of work hours military things there was a lot going on. Read more →

092: Kubernetes, Musk, Dorsey, Go, Blame, Serverless, and More

Elon Musk is a weird dude. Amidst the SEC probing into his tweet about taking Tesla private, ol’ Elon decides to smoke a blunt on a podcast with Joe Rogan (the memes are amazing by the way). Not the smartest move. The only thing dumber that happened this week was Alex Jones at the US Capitol accosting Jack Dorsey. Did you know Dorsey fasts every day? Alex Jones is so dumb, he pisses off hangry people. Read more →

091: Microsoft Goes Bold, ASDOR, Project Paper Cuts, Shady Telcos, Kubernetes, Ansible, and More

090: DevOps, GitOps, Commons Clause Clusterfuck, NotPetya, Kubernetes, Prometheus, and more!

The past few weeks have resulted in iterative improvements to my office workspace. After visiting a few Red Hat offices, it dawned on me that my office wasn’t what it should be. The improvements have helped me mentally in numerous ways. They’ve also allowed me to think more broadly about a number of things. Some odd little nuggets related to DevOps’ish popped out too (sausage making follows): Automation: This newsletter relies more on automation for content curation than you might realize. Read more →

089: Kubernetes, Get a Dog, GitHub, GitOps, Istio, AKS Woes, and More

This week’s newsletter is a day early. I’ll be moving my daughter into college Sunday and Monday. It’s a two-day process because southeastern Michigan isn’t as close to southern Ohio as you’d think. I’ll be in Dayton on Sunday and Cincinnati on Monday. Lemme know if you’re around.

088: Survey Results, Kubernetes, Prometheus Graduates 🎓, Blue Light is Bad, CI/CD, Ethics, kubespray, and More!

If you participated in the DevOps’ish Summer 2018 Survey, thank you. It was vital to make sure I was putting bits in the right places. The aggregate results are available. A few changes you might have noticed last week; Events and Jobs now live as pages on the website. While they add value, they also added unnecessary weight to every newsletter. The benefit of them being pages now either of them can be updated as new listings come in. Read more →
