The people have spoken. DevOps’ish won’t be changing its name any time soon. I received a lot of great feedback; thank you for that. As I’m writing this, I can feel the effects of my COVID-19 booster kicking in. The joint pain is the tell for me. Max received his first shot today too. He and I will be pretty sore in the morning.

I started my new role as a Senior Developer Advocate on the AWS Kubernetes team this week. Working for the second largest employer in the United States and the #1 cloud in the world is an extremely interesting dynamic. I’m adapting slowly but surely to the scale. It has a surprisingly familiar feel. I guess that’s what happens when one of your friends brings you in. But, I also have so many friends at AWS and Amazon too.

Facebook aware of Instagram’s harmful effect on teenage girls, leak reveals
Facebook isn’t a good company rarely that acts in the best interests of its users. They have a market cap over $1 trillion and their stock is still soaring to new heights.

In a way, this is a lot like our systems, overtaxed by the increasing number of people using them. Ready to both be upgraded by an admin and taken down by a deluge of traffic at the same time (or worse, the opposite).

More to come later. Join the DevOps’ish subreddit and talk about how bad the intro was. Our how dope the notes page is for this issue.
People Cloud Tech Tuesdays: Kubernetes 1.22
Josh Berkus, Amy Marrich, and I sat down for a livestream with Savitha Raghunathan, James Laverack, Jesse Butler, and Guinevere Saenger to discuss all things Kubernetes and the Kubernetes 1.
Read more →Finally, an average week, expect weeks are anything but “normal” these days. This past week marked the first birthday of OpenShift.TV (which is for all intents and purposes) what I’ve been working on the past year. 540 hours of content that has been archived to help folks tackle all kinds of issues with Kubernetes, OpenShift, and a host of other open source projects. I bet we’ve touched on etcd’s thirst for low latency, having to remind people to use DHCP for IPI installations, and have come up with as many “stage” names; it might total up to about 540 times too.

That’s right; you read that right. KubeCon EU 2021 was a great virtual event. No one besides Deserted Island DevOps and CNCF has unlocked successful models of making a virtual event enjoyable.
As a speaker, I did not test anything until thirty minutes before the talk on Friday morning.
