DevOps'ish

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

Penguins on the March

081: Diversity, Silicon Valley v. US, Ansible, Kubernetes, Meetings, DevSecOps, Serverless, and More

I had a very quiet week (which explains the enormity of this week’s newsletter). To give you an idea what the highlight of my week was, on Friday, I wiped two laptops, went to FedEx, and shipped them back to their owners. I’m spending the weekend between jobs resting and resetting. I will be in Raleigh the first part of the week and will finish the week at home, working for a new employer. Read more β†’

077: ChefConf 2018, GDPR, Go CoC πŸ™Œ, Go vgo 😞, Kubernetes, Laptop Giveaway, Security, and More

076: Hiring in DevOps, Security, Kubernetes, and More

This has been a whirlwind week. On Sunday, we celebrated Mother’s Day. It was a good day where I tried very hard to give Julie the day off from the rigors of Max management. I had to bail a little before Max’s bedtime though to head to Cleveland for an SJ Technologies client visit. It was a great visit but it was, in military lingo, a turn and burn. I was back in Michigan by Monday night. Read more β†’

075: Assholes, SRE, Container and Kubernetes Security, Ansible for Windows, and More

Assholes seemed to be the theme of the week. First, Rafael Avila de Espindola is leaving the LLVM project because it adopted a code of conduct and its support of Outreachy. Yes, Rafael is arguing that creating a framework to foster a more inclusive community and helping folks that have are at a significant disadvantage is against his “ethical views”. Next, infamous bad actor, Richard Stallman, vehemently opposed the removal of an abortion joke from glibc source code. Read more β†’

How many mics do we rip on the daily β€”The Fugees

072: Microsoft, Speaking, DevSecOps, Container Security, Kubernetes, and More

This week has been a blur. Monday through Wednesday, I was in Atlanta for DevOpsDays. DevOpsDays Atlanta was a truly great event. The theme was well thought out and the speakers were fantastic. This was the first time I actually manned a booth at an event before too. Talking to total strangers is something I’m okay with. It’s a good thing too because there were a ton of visitors to the SJ Technologies booth. Read more β†’
