This is the last week to take the DevOps’ish Summer 2018 Survey. I can tell you definitively changes are coming to the newsletter. But, if you would like to have some influence on what those changes are please take the survey. The survey closes on Friday, August 3, 2018 at 1400 ET.

I started at Red Hat this week on the Ansible team as Principal Product Marketing Manager. After the first week, I feel like this is the best career move I’ve ever made. It’s also a move that I’ve wanted to make for a long time. But, the delay has been well worth it.

The big news this week is Microsoft’s acquisition of GitHub. Jim Zemlin, Executive Director at The Linux Foundation, provides a very positive and principled take on the GitHub acquisition. I have been a believer in Microsoft’s commitment to open source ever since they reached out to me to discuss how they can improve their image in the open source community.

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.

There are those that twist religion to benefit themselves, double-crossers, and people who will have their co-workers swatted just for existing. But, you cannot add yourself to that list in the process of “being American.” You are the epitome of a loser if you target people because of their race, gender identity, political leanings, sexual orientation, or disability.

Not a big deal, it’s just a lot of powdery snow early in the winter. It’ll probably be a white Christmas here in the Detroit metro area. Meanwhile, the job hunt is an odd mix of hot and cold. To be honest, I was hoping to have something pretty solid coming back from KubeCon.

How do you want to finish out the year? I am beyond thankful for an incredibly supportive family. Through all the ups and downs of this past week, there has been a steadfast source of support and happiness springing eternal from those we moved to Michigan to be closer to.
