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.

“I attended KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA 2018 in Seattle this week. Full disclosure, I was there Sunday through Wednesday morning then flew to RDU for meetings. I made the most of being there. I wore four hats this trip: Ansible PMM, OpenShift Advocate, opensource.com Community Moderator, and CNCF Ambassador.
