DevOps, Cloud Native, Open Source, and the ‘ish in between.

My Life is Dope and I Do Dope Shit

061: 🔥 Week, CoreOS Acquisition, 20 Years of Open Source, Heptio’s Undistribution, and…

I’ve had an absolutely amazing week! I was named a Cloud Native Computing Foundation Ambassador. My friend, Chris Bailey, and I recorded an episode of Techtown’s Discussing DevOps Details (3D) Podcast. I spoke at the Orchestructure January 2018 Meetup about Golang accelerating DevOps. Last, but certainly not least, I was named an 2018 People’s Choice Award winner. I also booked travel for Open Source 101 in Raleigh and DevOpsDays Charlotte. Read more →

Merry Christmas!

055: Rough Week, DevOps Culture, Kubernetes, and More!

I’m going to keep the monologue pretty short this week. I have some lightly scoped out ideas to share in 2018 though so don’t worry, lots more to come. It has been a rough week in the Short household and I’m mentally spent. But, there was a ton DevOps, Cloud Native, and open source of news this week. I hope you had a Happy Hanukkah or Happy Festivus and I wish all of you a Merry Christmas. Read more →

The sharks are circling

052: 1 Year 🎉, CNI Book Giveaway, AWS re:Invent, Kubernetes, and More!

This is the 52nd issue of DevOps’ish! While the official one-year anniversary is next week, there are 52 weeks in a year and now is as good a time as any to celebrate. In keeping with DevOps best practices, I shared some lessons learned in, Notes on Running a Newsletter: A Year of DevOps’ish. To celebrate the DevOps’ish first anniversary, Kris Nova has graciously offered to sponsor a giveaway of her and Justin Garrison’s new book, Cloud Native Infrastructure. Read more →

Healing is Hard

050: Healing, Move Slowly and Fix Things, Observability, Serverless, Kubernetes, and…

And so it begins… The long road to decompression and the end of my burnout. As I mentioned on my blog on Monday, I am Leaving Bankrate. It was not an easy decision to make but it was a move that needed to happen. I am considering writing a postmortem for the whole ordeal. I’m not sure I’ll ever publish it. But, it is something many others could benefit from. Read more →

Live and Direct from Gonza Tacos y Tequila on Hillborough St. in Raleigh, NC

040: Solaris, Observability, Shift Left, Ansible, and More

This week I finished a project that has been in the works for a quite some time. Back before I moved to Detroit but shortly after taking over Triangle DevOps, I was offered (and accepted) a spot as a DevOpsDays Raleigh organizer. I submitted three talks to the event and one was accepted. Today I opened the event with my talk, “The Dark Side of DevOps” and thoroughly enjoyed it as well as all the other talks at the event.
