Got a jam-packed newsletter this week, complete with relevant stories from The Washington Post and New York Times. It’s an exciting time to be alive. I remember when something had to be earth-shattering to make these papers. Nowadays, it seems commonplace to read about low level, tech news (like the .org registry issues), and high stakes tech news all the same (like the NSA disclosing a Windows vuln). But, what these two stories this week highlight is the importance of governance.

I feel a few themes that are predominant but, I’m looking forward “for the next thing” and it’s still Kubernetes and the cloud native ecosystem. This is why I think Kubernetes will become the standard cloud APIs that we all build on in the future. I look at Linux and how it has become table stakes these days.

If you don’t mind, please ask your coworkers, BFFs, family, and folks on social media to subscribe to DevOps’ish. Y’all keep being awesome!
It is worth noting 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 exhausted. I tweeted midweek that I likely shortened my lifespan at KubeCon this week and I wasn’t sure why. It was a net negative experience for me. The people are great.

The best part about being a disabled veteran is that I have a funding source for this newsletter until I decide to stop. But, this newsletter does take a significant amount of effort, time, and energy. It’s nice to be compensated for that.

OpenShift (a lot of OpenShift), Kubernetes, containers, Operators, and all the associated bits will be my day job. Helping folks help themselves with technology is still and always will be the name of my game. But, working full time in the Kubernetes or cloud native ecosystem was a 2020 goal.

Safe to say, I’m paranoid af when it comes to the software delivery pipeline (GitHub and GitLab are both used to manage DevOps’ish). I immediately changed passwords everywhere I have code stored (and you should too if you haven’t already). GitLab chimed in on the issue to confirm it did not appear to be a total loss of data on affected repos and provided potential fixes.
