DevOps, Cloud Native, Open Source, and the ‘ish in between.

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?

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 →

083: DevOps’ish Survey, Career Advice Galore, 🚫 Bastions, Kubernetes, Ansible, HTTP/2, Etcd, and More

It was a holiday week here in the United States. On Wednesday, we celebrated our independence. It is rather fitting that the DevOps’ish newsletter blasted past 1776 subscribers this week (the year the US declared Independence). After eighty-three weeks of doing this newsletter, I would like your help in improving it. I’ve put together a quick sixteen question survey that will ultimately improve the format and content in DevOps’ish. The data from the DevOps’ish Summer 2018 Survey will be a vital measurement to guide the direction of the newsletter going forward. Read more →
