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

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 โ†’

110: Weaveworks Flagger, DevOps Leaving Ops Behind, AWS ๐Ÿ–• OSS, Kubernetes Galore, and More

This week I ran an unscientific Twitter poll asking, “Has DevOps left Ops behind?” It was a question that came up during a discussion with one of my co-workers. So I've heard this a few times the past month and half and I'm starting to believe it's partly true but, let me ask you. Has DevOps left Ops behind? — Chris Short (@ChrisShort) January 8, 2019 There will be more discussion and thought around this for sure. Read more โ†’

081: Diversity, Silicon Valley v. US, Ansible, Kubernetes, Meetings, DevSecOps, Serverless, and More

I had a very quiet week (which explains the enormity of this week’s newsletter). To give you an idea what the highlight of my week was, on Friday, I wiped two laptops, went to FedEx, and shipped them back to their owners. I’m spending the weekend between jobs resting and resetting. I will be in Raleigh the first part of the week and will finish the week at home, working for a new employer. Read more โ†’

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. That has now expanded into a horrible cough. I have already had one doctor’s visit. But, it was a VA doc since I already had an appointment there. It might be time to see a real doctor.

069: Kubernetes 1.10, Docker Deathwatch, Breaches, goo.gl Gone, Ansible, and More

What a big week for tech news! On Monday, the first Kubernetes release of 2018 dropped like the world’s hottest mixtape; Kubernetes 1.10 is out! On Wednesday, we saw what I believe to be the next step in Docker’s death; Solomon Hykes is out! More on that below. We also witnessed yet another big-time company get hit by WannaCry; Boeing. Boeing is the latest victim of poor IT practices as it found itself fighting the fast-spreading virus. Read more โ†’

065: Change, Dropbox, GitHub DDoS, Kubernetes, Docker, and More!

At what point are we going to admit that, like mainframes and COBOL, while history is worth remembering it might not be worth memorializing. Change is a constant in life that we cannot deny. Humanity wouldn’t be roaming the earth and stars if it weren’t for evolution, which at its base is change. Throughout history there have been points in time in which one side said, “no more” and the other said, “status quo”. Read more โ†’
