#106: There seems to be a great debate about what a DevOps engineer is and what a SRE is. Today, we throw our hat in the ring and attempt to dispel the myths that we see running rampant throughout the industry.

 

Viktor's video for "What is the difference between SRE and DevOps?":

#105: The following quote is attributed to Mark Twain, "History does not repeat itself, but it rhymes." Does this sound familiar? VMs. LXC. Containers. They are all (roughly) the same thing. So why do we keep recreating things that already exist?

#104: When a business decides to release code to production that hasn't been fully tested or is releasing because a date has been promised, that's a business decision and not a technical decision. However, at some point in the future, the debt will come due. Today, we speak with Dan Burns from Testifi about TDD, BDD, and why an organization must apply test automation the correct way or they'll find themselves playing ca...

#102: Are you a rule-maker or a rule-breaker? Hopefully we all agree that having guardrails up help us live a better life, whether personally or professionally. However, sometimes those rules get in our way of getting things done. Today, we take an introductory look at Open Policy Agent and Gatekeeper and try to figure out how using Gatekeeper can make not only our lives but the lives of our end users much easier when managing our ...

#101: What happens when you're doing a demo and your technology fails? You can get angry and write a blog post that goes viral. Today, we speak with Nicolas Frankel about his move from minikube to Kind, how Gradle is no better than Ant, and how the conference circuit is not meant for people that only want to work from 9 to 5.

#100: In our 100th episode, we bring back Patrick Debois, the GodFather of DevOps (at least we think so), as our "divide by 50" guest. In very Patrick fashion, he turns the tables on us and we go down a number of paths that we didn't see coming.

#99: In the nineties and early 2000s, it wasn't strange to see operations people copy and pasting "code" from Word documents, also known as runbooks, into their terminals to get their job done. It's now 2021 and we still have people questioning whether or not they should be writing code to do their work.

#98: How many times have you been put into the situation to debug a production issue and you have no idea where to start? Probably more than you can count. Worse yet, your employer expects that you can troubleshoot the issue without having access to all the tools that you need. Today we speak with Itiel Shwartz, CTO and co-founder of Komodor, a startup developing the next-gen troubleshooting platform for Kubernetes.

#97: A chess player knows to write down their moves so they can replay their matches and learn from them. Having the ability to replay those matches also gives you the ability to start over and see where something goes wrong. In today's episode, we speak with Viktor (Vik) Gamov about Apache Kafka and how it can help you breathe new life into systems that may not have been written in a way to take advantage of events.

#90: Email. Slack. Kubernetes. These things have at least one thing in common. They are all event-driven. Even if you don't agree with that statement, we can agree that asynchronous development has taken off in the past few years, thus exploding the concepts of event-driven. We are now starting to see these concepts arriving in tooling space. We speak with Andi Grabner about Keptn, an event-based control plane for continuous de...

#89: 2020 is in the rear view mirror. 2021 is out the front windshield. The items that are going to be the most important are going to be those items that are the most irrelevant. In today's episode, we try to unwind what that means and why it matters to you.
