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

Cascades from Mt. Rainier by Kris Nova

062: Saddling Up, Mergers, Deaths, What’s Up with 18F, Chaos Engineering, Performance Impact of Meltdown and More!

This was a very interesting week for me. I participated in a chronic pain treatment study at the Ann Arbor VA Hospital early Tuesday morning. The experience, while odd, went incredibly well. Today is the first day I have felt noticeable pain which is likely due to managing Max at my nephew’s birthday date. If you know me, you know this is an incredible feat. On Thursday, I attended a brand new Kubernetes Meetup in Downtown Detroit. Read more →

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 opensource.com 2018 People’s Choice Award winner. I also booked travel for Open Source 101 in Raleigh and DevOpsDays Charlotte. Read more →

Times Square, New York City

059: DODNYC, Hawaii Missile UI, Intel, Kubernetes, and More

I attended and spoke at DevOpsDays NYC 2018 this week. The conference was very well organized. It was a truly unique experience held at the Microsoft Technology Center in Times Square. There were some absolutely amazing talks. The talks were all great. The one thing I enjoyed the most was meeting people and seeing where they were along their journey. There are a lot of folks, some in really big companies, trying to change their cultures and improve their environments in dramatic ways. Read more →

Smooth Seas Ahead

058: It’s Raining Kubernetes, Everything’s Turning Up Serverless, and More!

It’s great to be working again. It’s refreshing to be figuring things out, collaborating with others in real-time, and keeping my skills sharp. This week I did a lot of the typical on-boarding stuff but, also needed to refresh my Ansible and Kubernetes basics. I practiced by working on a Raspberry Pi Kubernetes cluster. I’ll talk more about this cluster elsewhere but, it’s amazing how rusty some skills get after a month and a half of not really using them. Read more →
