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 β†’

064: DODCLT, {code} death knell, Leadership, Kubernetes Good and Bad, Docker and moving on from it, and More!

I’m fresh off the plane from DevOpsDays Charlotte 2018 when I’m writing this. I have to say a HUGE thank you to the organizers, sponsors, and speakers. The venue was beyond amazing. Red Ventures knows how to host a crowd in style. I definitely feel like I need to fly out the morning after these events though. Traveling on a Friday is not ideal. It never fails that I end up missing a connection I wanted to make because I just flat out ran out of time. Read more β†’

I listened to a very impactful podcast on Wednesday while walking my best buddy beast (happy birthday, Sunny). On the podcast, the speaker asked the audience five questions.

On Thursday, I attended a brand new Kubernetes Meetup in Downtown Detroit. Read more β†’
