    Portainer for Kubernetes, Docker, Swarm, Edge, and IoT

    Portainer for Kubernetes, Docker, Swarm, Edge, and IoT

    Bret is joined by Neil Cresswell, CEO and co-founder of Portainer, to show us new features in Portainer and how it can manage, deploy, and orchestrate all your container workloads from a single Docker Engine, all the way to multi-cluster and IoT Kubernetes deployments.
    Portainer is much more comprehensive than you might think. Docker on the Edge, Podman, Kubernetes, in the cloud, in hybrid, you name it; it seems that Portainer supports it. In the show, we also get some updates on new things that have happened in the last couple of years, including adding GitOps support to Portainer, the ability to deploy Kubernetes nodes, and infrastructure.
    Be sure to check out the live recording of the complete show with demos from February 29, 2024 on YouTube (Ep. 256).

    Open Source Codespaces with Daytona

    Open Source Codespaces with Daytona

    Bret and Nirmal are joined by Ivan Burazin and Chad Metcalf to debut Daytona, an open source "codespaces equivalent."
    Daytona is a development environment manager designed to automate all the tedious steps a developer needs to perform to set up their development environment. "Essentially, it transforms any machine into a codespaces equivalent."
    Where Daytona is actually starting in the enterprise is focusing on large dev environment solutions and management of those, and then trickling down to individual developers. So there are two very similar solutions to a problem of many developers and their varying ways that they set up their environments for development, but they're coming at it from two ends of the spectrum.
    Be sure to check out the live recording of the complete show with demos from March 7, 2024 on YouTube (Ep. 257).

    Postgres in Containers

    Postgres in Containers

    Bret and Nirmal are joined by Lukas Fittl of pganalyze to dive into Postgres in containers, in production, and in CI.
    Lukas is an expert and founder of pganalyze, and I invited him on the show to explain a lot of this to us and catch us up with what's going on in the Postgres community, particularly when it comes to containers and production.
    We dive into everything around containers with Postgres, some of the new stuff going on in Postgres Land, including tuning and stuff I didn't even know about Postgres, including storing NoSQL data, vector databases for AI and more.
    Be sure to check out the live recording of the complete show from February 15, 2024 on YouTube (Ep. #254).

    Best of DevOps 2023

    Best of DevOps 2023

    Bret and Nirmal are joined by Melissa McKay, Developer Advocate at JFrog and Docker Captain, to discuss the best and worst of 2023.
    We recorded this episode in December of 2023 where we talked through our favorite tools. Whether a DevOps oriented tool or not, it just might be the things we like to use on containers and in Cloud Native DevOps. This is a fun episode of three friends talking about what they love. And I sometimes I think these are the best shows because we didn't plan them out. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did recording it.

    Faster Dev Feedback and Previews with Livecycle

    Faster Dev Feedback and Previews with Livecycle

    Bret is joined by Matan Mishan & Roy Razon of Livecycle to discuss developer platforms and how to improve developer collaboration and speeding up feedback and previews.
    We talk about the various delays encountered in pull requests due to feedback processes, and how Lifecycle's tools aim to shorten this feedback loop in Docker Desktop, local CLI with Preevy, and automated CI workflows. I like how Lifecycle provides multiple locations and ways to get access to people in the preview environments that really lets you just fit the different parts of the tool into your workflow, as opposed to one way to do everything. It's great for getting feedback quickly during the PR process, rather than making people set up their own environments to test their changes. I also liked their ideas around how the feedback loops can be improved.
    This episode contains great demos so be sure to also check out the live recording of the complete show from December 21, 2023 on YouTube (Ep. #246).

    Docker Recap of 2023

    Docker Recap of 2023

    Bret and Nirmal are joined by Michael Irwin, DevRel at Docker, to talk about all the products and features Docker shipped in 2023, and what's coming in early 2024.
    Michael has been on this show many times as a Docker Captain and now as a Docker employee, and it's always great to dig into the details of the products with someone who's been using them for so many years as an end-user and now staff at Docker.
    Docker did some big things in 2023, but they also shipped some smaller features that we will help you catch up on in this episode.

Entertaining, insightful, and actionable! 🔥

Bret and his incredibly knowledgeable guests deliver nothing but value in each and every episode. Comprised of all the traditional things that make a DevOps show fabulous (deconstruction, innovation, etc.) coupled with authenticity and insight you won’t find anywhere else. Thanks for putting out such a wonderful show, Bret - keep up the great work!
