DevOps'ish

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

116: Open Source Licenses, Kubernetes Interview Prep, .dev Grossness, Hashicorp in Wired, Ansible for Kubernetes, Knative, and More

Last week’s attempt at full automation failed and pointed out a shortcoming or two. I hope that’s all ironed out (time will tell). It also highlights the need to think of always starting from a clean slate. My theory is, a cached version of the newsletter was stored on MailChimp. When I enabled the automation for web site to e-mail, MailChimp observed 115 as new and shipped it. Hopefully, you get this while I’m sleeping and everything works wonderfully. Read more β†’

115: CVE-2019-5736 runc vuln, You Can Fit So Much Kubernetes in this Newsletter, Liz Fong-Jones, MongoDB’s Demise, GPS epoch, DIY DBaaS, and More!

Last week, I enabled a workflow to automate more of the DevOps’ish process. One thing I did not test as a part of this workflow was link tracking. To be honest, I did not think it would matter. That assumption bit me hard. Within minutes, reports from readers came in saying Gmail was flagging the links in the e-mail as suspicious.

114: Shared Learning, Pipelines, Kubernetes at CERN, Ansible Operator, Hacker Tools, Rolling Updates, and More

This week was very interesting filled with unusual experiences. Shared learning is a tenet of DevOps so allow me to share my experiences with you. Hopefully, we all get better as a result.

I have canceled that. Read more β†’

Petty, petty whale

066: Kubernetes πŸŽ“, Awesome People, Rogue Satellites, IDGAF About Your IDE, and More!

One big piece of news from the CNCF this week was Kubernetes graduating. “To move from incubation to graduate, projects must demonstrate thriving adoption, a documented, structured governance process, and a strong commitment to community success and inclusivity.” One questioned I was asked by a few people was what does graduating from CNCF actually mean? I asked around because it wasn’t really clear to me either when the TOC started voting on it. Read more β†’
