DevOps'ish

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

128: MDS, Mined Minds, Red Hat & IBM, Kubernetes Operating Systems, ReactiveOps Polaris, Best Practices, and More

No. Contrary to what everyone I’ve talked to this week thinks, I’m not going to KubeCon Barcelona. I don’t think I was really planning on it at the beginning of the year. I believe it was added to my schedule right before my Shingles diagnosis. Let me tell you, Shingles is bullshit. I’ve been battling a flare-up of the nerve pain today and it’s gnarly af. I was going to discuss the use of the term “best practice” this week but, I need to go get some rest. Read more →

127: Mother’s Day, What is DevOps, DevOps is Dead, 1:1s, Oracle Oracling, UBI, KEDA, terraformer, and More

Happy Mother’s Day! To the single moms, this day should be yours two times over. I’m sorry if you don’t even get so much as a bathroom break to yourself today. To the almost moms, this day is yours. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise; if they do, send them my way. To the moms that have lost a child, this day is especially yours. For those of us whose toxic moms have been extricated from our lives, this day might be a little heavier. Read more →

126: Ransom Attacks Hit Git, Managing Many Clusters, Kubernetes Failure Stories, Ansible-based Kubernetes Operators, Deadlines are Horrible, & More

Friday afternoon (US east coast time), some oddities around git repos being taken for ransom started to pop-up. Safe to say, I’m paranoid af when it comes to the software delivery pipeline (GitHub and GitLab are both used to manage DevOps’ish). I immediately changed passwords everywhere I have code stored (and you should too if you haven’t already). GitLab chimed in on the issue to confirm it did not appear to be a total loss of data on affected repos and provided potential fixes. Read more →
