DevOps'ish

DevOps, Cloud Native, Hybrid Cloud, Open Source, industry news, culture, and the ‘ish between.

DevOps’ish 233: Luke Hinds of Sigstore, three REALLY bad breaches/bugs, Docker’s increasing desperation, Kubernetes mTLS, update your Operators, BGP & filesystem benchmarks, and more

I spent most of the week in a deteriorated state. Getting over the 12 injections last Friday took much longer than expected. It still amazes me how much work I can do with a disability, medications that slow me down, and a lack of sleep (Max started Kindergarten this week). In a way, this is a lot like our systems, overtaxed by the increasing number of people using them. Ready to both be upgraded by an admin and taken down by a deluge of traffic at the same time (or worse, the opposite). Read more →

DevOps’ish 231: Kubernetes 1.22 release team livestream, problems in Perl, glibc, eBPF, Pod Security Admission, secure supply chains, tools galore, and more

My military service and tech worlds collided this week. I can’t say much about it yet but, I’ve been insanely busy with an array of things I never thought I’d need to do. More to come later. Join the DevOps’ish subreddit and talk about how bad the intro was. Our how dope the notes page is for this issue.

DevOps’ish 202: AWS/Elastic drama, prioritize disability issues, ADT Peeping Tom, Software Is Your Competitive Advantage, Traefik to Caddy, No-Cost RHEL, serverless with Podman and more

Unpopular opinion alert (and Disclaimer)… Call me old fashioned, but I thought two of the top tenets of open source were candor and goodwill. I thought it was good practice to contribute to a project before baking it into a product. This was often the case for open source friendly vendors. But, it feels like AWS came along and never got that memo. I feel like AWS has done a lot more taking and productizing (aka making AWS a trillion-dollar, with a T, business) than contributing back to open source. Read more →

DevOps’ish 193

Saturday morning, I awoke at 5 AM to pain and an awful headache. I know this headache well; it was a headache from looking at a computer screen too much (after 25 years in the industry, I rarely get these). It was the headache of sitting down before 8:30 AM on Friday, the next time you look up it’s almost 2 PM, and you’ve crossed one thing off your list. Read more →
