#142: We answer a new variation on a question that we get a lot. Sure, we all know we need to know how to code if we are doing DevOps, but do we also need to know how to use development frameworks and potentially even how to connect to and use databases?

#137: Many application developers have either been hearing about or having thrust upon them the concept of shifting left. But now in some places, even infrastructure is trying to get in on the game. However, to believe that application developers can correctly build, maintain, secure, and govern infrastructure is a failed experiment unless they are…
 
#136: Imagine you've just learned Kubernetes yourself, but now you've been selected to help train a new team member on what Kubernetes is and how to operate it. Where would you start?

#135: Alexey asked us the following question: ​My company is considering migrating everything to Kubernetes. What stack of Kubernetes technologies would you suggest...in 1 minute or less?

Joyce shares her thoughts on emerging trends in the world of …
 
#132: Since around March 2020, we've been working, or trying to work, remotely. That doesn't mean that it has been done efficiently or effectively.

#127: Even though it is 2021, many application development organizations still follow the decades-old process of throwing software over the wall to an operations team to deploy. This practice causes operational difficulties like organizational silos, poor collaboration, and poor user experience. As software continues to become more complicated, app…
 
#126: If you're like most people, you're probably wondering what "bare metal" means. Turns out, it's a term that's been thrown around for decades. And if you're wondering how it can be applied to something like cloud computing, you might be surprised to find out that it is different than you might think. In this episode, we speak with Ian McClarty,…
 
#125: Low code is a movement that aims to further automate the development of systems and software. By doing so, it reduces the time spent on building custom applications.

#120: From everyday conversations to important messages, words have a profound effect on our lives. As we are finding out in today's society (and really throughout time), words really do matter, especially from a technical perspective. But what happens when a word is used out of context or incorrectly? In this episode, we argue that it's time to ta…

#118: Do you know who your customer is? If you think the answer is "I don't have any customers", you would be wrong. Everyone has awesome customers.

#116: Individuals typically love to chase the new bright shiny technology objects. However, most enterprises go in the exact opposite direction and want any "new" technology to be fully proven out, i.e. for years, before that technology has a chance to actually be turned into a live production system. How can we help convince management to think di…
 
#115: Are you still logging in and making manual changes to your servers and applications or have you started on the path to not only no touch production, but to no touch everything?

#110: It seems that everyone thinks that microservices solves every problem that can be imagined.

YouTube channel: https://youtube.com/devopsparadox/ Books and Courses: Catalog, Patterns, And Blueprints ht…
 
#109: You've made the decision that you're going to drop your monoliths and move to microservices. Have you given any consideration how you are going to test your microservices?

Transcript: https://www.devopsparadox.com/episodes/why-do-we-want-t…
 
#107: As a software development community, we're used to hearing the terms sprints, projects, and agile.

Today, we speak with Steve Pereira, the found of Visible.is, a consulting fir…

#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? Transcript: https://www.devopsparadox.com/episodes/does-history-repeat-itself-105/#transcript YouTube c…
 
#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.

Nicolas on Twitter: ht…

#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. Transcript: https://www.devopsparadox.com/ep…
 
#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.
