075: Assholes, SRE, Container and Kubernetes Security, Ansible for Windows, and More

Assholes seemed to be the theme of the week. First, Rafael Avila de Espindola is leaving the LLVM project because it adopted a code of conduct and its support of Outreachy. Yes, Rafael is arguing that creating a framework to foster a more inclusive community and helping folks that have are at a significant disadvantage is against his “ethical views”.

074: Kubernetes’ Big Week in Europe, Three-day no meetings, High-speed networking, and More

My week started out great! Spring had finally sprung here in Michigan. But, with that came something I’m allergic to. Then that turned into a sinus infection.

How many mics do we rip on the daily β€”The Fugees

072: Microsoft, Speaking, DevSecOps, Container Security, Kubernetes, and More

This week has been a blur. Monday through Wednesday, I was in Atlanta for DevOpsDays. DevOpsDays Atlanta was a truly great event. The theme was well thought out and the speakers were fantastic. This was the first time I actually manned a booth at an event before too. Talking to total strangers is something I’m okay with. It’s a good thing too because there were a ton of visitors to the SJ Technologies booth. Read more β†’
