    How Many Hours Do You Code per Day?

    How Many Hours Do You Code per Day?

    #171: How many hours a day do you think you code? 5? 4? Maybe 3?
     
    What if I told you that you were only averaging 52 minutes each day?
     
    In this episode, we talk with Mason McLead, CTO at Software, about the Code Time Report they released. In this report, you may discover that a few key secrets to help you increase your time in front of your IDE and less time in meetings.

    Running Containers at the Edge

    Running Containers at the Edge

    #170: Containers are one of the quickest ways we can move away from a traditional server-centric architecture, as they allow us to host software "in the cloud" without over-provisioning resources or managing infrastructure like we did with virtual machines.
     
    What do you think about when you hear edge computing? Is it CDN, serverless functions, or something else? All of these definitions can be heavily related to the concept of edge computing. The term itself is ambiguous and hard to grasp.
     
    But what happens when you try to run containers at the edge? In this episode, we speak with Dan Bartholomew, Co-Founder & CTO at Section, about how running containers at the edge is much more than deciding what city to run your container in.

    How to Reduce Cloud Development Complexity

    How to Reduce Cloud Development Complexity

    #169: With the development trend toward cloud services, developers need to build and deploy applications in this new paradigm. However, it may be difficult to determine what is possible and what is not, because building on a cloud service can lead to unforeseen difficulties that require a more complex solution.
     
    In this episode, we speak with Ala and Aaron from Klotho about how complexity cannot be avoided as well as how operations teams are on the rise.

    How to Secure Kubernetes

    How to Secure Kubernetes

    #167: When you install vanilla Kubernetes, which security option do you take? Trick question. There are no options. It is always installed wide open. If you're just experimenting, that's probably not a big deal.
     
    However, how many times have we had an experiment turn into a production system? Probably too many times to count. At that point, retrofitting security into your Kubernetes cluster is near impossible.
     
    In this episode, we speak with Lachlan Evenson about his thoughts on the proper strategies to secure your Kubernetes clusters.

    Are in Person Events Dead?

Stay up to date on DevOps, SRE, Cloud, Kubernetes, etc.

Darin and Viktor do a great job of breaking down important concepts in a digestible manner that may not always be so simple.

Highly recommend to anyone looking to get started with the DevOps space or stay up to date with the latest key developments and concepts!
