The Cloud Native community lost a great person; Peeyush Gupta. He leaves behind a wife and 10-month old child. His employer, Digital Ocean, and the Kubernetes community are trying very hard to make that that mother and child will not be as devastated.

I’m in surgery recovery mode. I will be for a while it looks like. Nerves are weird. Do me a favor; if you’re reading this, take the 2021 DORA State of DevOps survey. People Growing Concerns among Developers about the AWS Free Tier It feels like if you think you’re keeping yourself in the free tier you’re an API call or bug in the system away from a massive panic attack.

It was indeed KubeCon EU this week. What my family is told is one of my Super Bowl events (KubeCons and Red Hat Summit are in that class). It was indeed an extraordinary virtual event. That’s right; you read that right. KubeCon EU 2021 was a great virtual event. No one besides Deserted Island DevOps and CNCF has unlocked successful models of making a virtual event enjoyable. As a speaker, I did not test anything until thirty minutes before the talk on Friday morning. Read more →

We’ve had another rough week in the Short household. The adults, at least, are exhausted. Max is fully energized. Sunny is getting nursed back to health. I always try to provide some value in the intro but, I have to say, I almost skipped this week due to everything. Some valuable nuggets live on a few other sites I run. New and old subscribers alike can get some benefit from these: Read more →

Xinuos is suing IBM and Red Hat for using Linux. Talk about bringing back ancient memories of trying to keep up with a new and essential thing to me back in the early 2000s: Linux. Read more →

DevOps’ish 207: Solarwinds, 4 hour a week Kubernetes maintainer, mischievous Mailchimp, secrets management, Digital Ocean IPO, Sysdig, BOOP, Flux, and More

DevOps’ish is in a state of spring cleaning. First, I’ve found a tool that I like more than Pocket to bookmark and save pages in Raindrop.io. All the Recommended Reads automation is now pulling from Raindrop.io. Then three Zapier rules ferry everything off to the appropriate places. I made that transition midweek. Next is the newsletter service itself. I’ve been unhappy with the current provider ever since doing the never-easy switch from Mailchimp (how forward-thinking that was) to the current provider.

Sometimes you don’t know what the world needs until someone tells you. On Monday this week, a friend asked if I had any additional books to point them to for Kubernetes help. I have a mile-long list in my head. I said, yeah, let me punch that up for you real quick. But, instead of creating a locked down doc or dust bin email, I built a website. Behold, Kubernetes README.
