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

113: Ansible Operator, Groundhog Day, DevOps Team Topologies, OSS CS Degree, Multi-Arch Home Kubernetes Cluster, OpenFaaS Cloud, and More

If you received this e-mail, it means we all made it through another Groundhog Day here in the US (it’s a real “holiday”). The movie, starring Bill Murray, is hands down, bar none one of the best movies ever made. A curmudgeonly news reporter is sent to cover a groundhog (Marmota monax, also called “woodchuck”) peeking out of its hole; if it sees its shadow, it means six more weeks of winter. Read more →

112: Kubernetes Any Way You Want It, Passing the CKA, GitOps, Joy Sparking Meetings, Processes, Containers, and VMs. Oh My! and More

I’m struggling to write an intro this week (probably broke a rib). But, I did write a tweet that got a lot more attention than I thought it would this week. I’d like to talk about it: Ask yourself, "Does this meeting invite bring me joy?" If not, thank the inviter and decline it. — Chris Short (@ChrisShort) January 21, 2019 This is not to say I decline every meeting invite I get. Read more →

111: Kubernetes Security, Earn More in DevOps, Jim Whitehurst, Where to Work in Tech, and More

I spent most of the week in Raleigh, North Carolina in and around Red Hat Tower. I was in a two-day All Product Marketing Summit. My boss is so amazing though. She asked how I was holding up at one point (that’s what builds psychological safety). My response, “This is kinda close to my personal hell. Not trying to be dramatic. But, ya, I’m super uncomfortable.” Then something rather Red Hat happened. Read more →

109: Get Caught Up, Kubernetes in High Demand, Two Monorepos Walk into a Bar, Hashicorp at Home, and More

What a weird week. It started on Wednesday first of all. It felt like half of everyone was still on vacation. It was quiet but, it was busy. There was a lot of great content this week too surprisingly. The time at the end of one year, the beginning of another is awesome. So many folks are taking time to write down their thoughts on everything from note taking during programming to monorepos to Kubernetes to infosec. Read more →

107: KubeCon Recap, Larry Ellison, China Hacking, Kubernetes Security, and More

As mentioned last week, I was able to finish my KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA 2018 recap this week. It’s not an exhaustive list of things I did but, it covers the big ones. One point of emphasis for me was to assess the physical toil I managed along the way. It’s important to note that life doesn’t stop because you’re at a conference. Videos from the Kubernetes Contributor Summit are now available too. Read more →

106: KubeKhan, KubeCon, AWS Container Roadmap, etcd, More Weird Licenses, Securing Kubernetes, JFrog Go Registry, and More!

These are some highlights from an e-mail I sent to my colleagues in my business unit titled, “KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA 2018 Recap” “I attended KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA 2018 in Seattle this week. Full disclosure, I was there Sunday through Wednesday morning then flew to RDU for meetings. I made the most of being there. I wore four hats this trip: Ansible PMM, OpenShift Advocate, opensource.com Community Moderator, and CNCF Ambassador. Read more →
