DevOpsDays Atlanta 2018: DevOps is Not War

I went to DevOpsDays Atlanta for the first time this week. I hadn’t been in Atlanta in a very long time. It sure has changed a ton. Originally, I was going to help run the SJ Technologies booth. But, a speaker had to back out at the last minute and I was asked to fill the spot. I was working on a talk for ChefConf so I quickly finished that up and gave it to the good folks at DevOpsDays Atlanta. [Read More]

Microsoft Has Come a Long Way

Microsoft has come a very long way in its fight back into the graces of all technologists. There will be some die hards that will never forgive Microsoft for what it attempted to do to open source software. Like there will be some die hards that won’t embrace PowerShell, WSL, and future Microsoft improvements. But, there is no denying that Microsoft has changed as a company in a way that is beneficial to the open source community and beyond. [Read More]

DevOpsDays Charlotte 2018 Ignite Talk on Go

All other DevOpsDays events should be put on notice. DevOpsDays Charlotte 2018 set the bar unattainably high for the quality of the venue and speaker line up. It’ll be insanely hard to beat the great folks who spoke in Charlotte this year. Almost every talk was a home run. The Red Ventures facility was also jaw dropping. Also, I don’t think we could have asked for a more inviting and welcoming speaker lounge either. [Read More]

Open Source 101 Raleigh 2018

I had the opportunity to attend and speak at Open Source 101 at NC State’s McKimmon Center for Extension & Continuing Education this past weekend. It’s always nice to visit Raleigh, NC and Red Hat Tower. I met several awesome attendees and speakers while I was in town too. The All Things Open team did an absolutely fantastic job at every facet of this conference. If you have the opportunity to attend one of these events you most definitely should! [Read More]

Kubernetes: Cron Jobs

One of the reasons I stood up a Kubernetes cluster on Raspberry Pis in my house was because of the savings I wanted to gain by not running high-available, redundant infrastructure in the cloud. Kubernetes provides high-availability by design. It’s pretty awesome the possibilities that exist given this capability. Need a web server to constantly run? Build a container and throw it in the Kubernetes cluster. Need a service available all the time? [Read More]

Orchestructure January 2018 Meetup

I spoke at the first Orchestructure Meetup of 2018. I have to admit, this is probably the smoothest run Meetup I’ve been a part of for quite some time. That’s not to say other Meetups weren’t well organized. But, Mario, Bob, and Jorge have their poop in a group. Orchestructure is one great Meetup. If you’re in Michigan, you’re missing out if you haven’t attended. Subscribe to DevOps’ish for updates on DevOps, Cloud Native, and Open Source news. [Read More]
