DevOps’ish 177: The Hiatus Edition

“We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return. We will be with our friends again. We will be with our families again. We will meet again. But for now, I send my thanks and warmest good wishes to you all.” -Queen Elizabeth II As mentioned last week, the newsletter is going on a hiatus. I’m not sure for how long, but it will be a while.

DevOps’ish 173

The impact of the coronavirus hit the tech events industry hard this week. In a shocking move on Tuesday, O’Reilly announced it has immediately ceased all in-person events. To add insult to injury, O’Reilly laid off their entire events staff during a pandemic. To make matters worse, under US law, they’ll get only a week of health insurance benefits, meager support for COBRA (super expensive health insurance), and any severance is based solely on tenure.

DevOps’ish 168

I spent this week in Las Vegas, working at IBM’s FastStart 2020 event. The event is for IBM sellers, partners, and technical folks to come to learn the new bits of knowledge about the products they’re selling and enabling at their clients’ sites. I went in my usual technical capacity and learned very quickly IBM and Red Hat speak two different languages. This is expected but, I wanted to look a little further into the why behind that.

151: DevOpsDays Detroit 2019, WeWork woes worsen, AWS should pay OSS devs, Women At Ernst & Young, Tim Cook, Equifax used ‘admin’ as username, & more

Our vacation in Yosemite National Park was amazing. Thanks for sticking around. I jumped out of PTO into DevOpsDays Detroit 2019. It was a great event! My report is linked below. Other news, is that I’m gearing up for Max’s birthday, a potential nerve stimulator, and KubeCon. If you haven’t gotten your tickets and travel for KubeCon sorted yet, do so sooner rather than later (KubeCon discount code below). Happy DevOps’ing out there this week, y’all! Read more →

116: Open Source Licenses, Kubernetes Interview Prep, .dev Grossness, Hashicorp in Wired, Ansible for Kubernetes, Knative, and More

Last week’s attempt at full automation failed and pointed out a shortcoming or two. I hope that’s all ironed out (time will tell). It also highlights the need to think of always starting from a clean slate. My theory is, a cached version of the newsletter was stored on MailChimp. When I enabled the automation for web site to e-mail, MailChimp observed 115 as new and shipped it. Hopefully, you get this while I’m sleeping and everything works wonderfully. Read more →
