A show about getting your best ideas into the world and seeing what happens. We talk about code, ops, infrastructure, and the people that make it happen. Gerhard Lazu and friends explore all things DevOps, infra, and running apps in production. Whether you’re cloud native, Kubernetes curious, a pro SRE, or just operating a VPS… you’ll love coming along for the ride. Ship It honors the makers, the shippers, and the visionaries that see it through. Some people search for ShipIt or ShipItFM and can’t find the show, so now the strings ShipIt and ShipItFM are in our description too.

    Two thumbs up for the Cool Wall

    Tammer Saleh, founder of Super Orbital, a tiny team of exceptional Kubernetes engineers and teachers, is joining us today to talk about what is cool in the Cloud Native world. Yes, it’s the same Tammer that we had the pleasure of on shipit.show/31 - Is Kubernetes a platform? In today’s episode, we also cover two great blog posts: Zero to GitOps: Terraform and the AWS EKS Blueprints project by Sean Kane Hunting Down an Intermittent Failure in Cilium by James McShane We wrap up with ✨ The Cool Wall of Cloud Native ✨

    Bass: the beat drop after Concourse

    Bass: the beat drop after Concourse

    Our today’s guest spent 4 days building a feature for his side project so that we could ship it together on Ship It!, while recording. The feature is called rave mode, and the context is Bass, an interpreted functional scripting language written in Go, riffing on the ideas of Kernel & Clojure. When the local build runs, you can now press r to synchronise the beats of your currently playing Spotify track with the build output. For a demo, see bass v0.9.0 release. Please welcome Alex Suraci, a.k.a. vito, the creator of Concourse CI and Bass. This episode is dedicated to the late John Shutt, the creator of Kernel. Your ideas continue in Bass. Thank you for getting them out into the world.

    KubeVelo 2022

    KubeVelo 2022

    We know that many of you listen to this podcast while running 🏃‍♀️ or cycling 🚴‍♂️ Hey Dan! How many of you cycled to a conference? Gerhard knows a single person that cycled 764 miles for 8 days straight from Switzerland to Spain for this year’s KubeCon EU. His name is Johann Gyger, a CNCF ambassador & a cloud consultant at Peak Scale. Johann is a cloud engineer at heart that is all in on sustainability. He is the main reason why Gerhard is super excited to talk about electric cars & Dagger at the Swiss Cloud Native Day this September.

    Operational simplicity is a gift to you

    Operational simplicity is a gift to you

    Gerhard’s transition to a senior engineer started 10 years ago, when he embraced the vim mindset, functional core & imperative shell, and was inspired to seek simplicity in his code & infrastructure. Most of it can be traced back to one person: Gary Bernhardt, the creator of Execute Program, Destroy all Software and the now famous Wat idea. Few stick around long enough to understand the long-term impact of their decisions on production systems. Even fewer are able to talk about them as well as Gary does.

    The ops & infra behind Transistor.fm

    The ops & infra behind Transistor.fm

    Today we talk with two lovely folks from Transistor.fm: Jason Pearl, Senior Software Developer & Jon Buda, co-founder. Gerhard was curious to find out about their setup & how did it change with the launch of the new podcast website builder. After all, you have been hearing us talk about our setup for years, so it was high-time to challenge some assumptions and learn how another team is solving similar problems. TL;DL: keeping it simple is at the root of smooth operations & stable systems.

    Kaizen! Post-migration cleanup

    Kaizen! Post-migration cleanup

    In our 6th Kaizen, we talk with Jerod about all the things that we cleaned up after migrating changelog.com from a managed Kubernetes to Fly.io. We deleted the K8s cluster and moved wildcard cert management to Fastly & all our vanity domain certs to Fly.io. We migrated the Docker Engine that our GitHub Actions is using - PR #416 has all the details. We did a few other things in preparation for our secrets plan. Thank you Maikel Vlasman, James Harr, Adrian Mester, Omri Gabay & Owen Valentine for kicking it off in our Slack #shipit channel. Gerhard’s favourite improvement: the new shipit.show domain.

Continuously delivering fresh perspectives

Absolutely love the hosts topics, questions, and pacing. Nothing makes it past Gerhard who consistently leads the listener to the most important lessons and challenges speakers with practical questions that result in high value answers.

Very dry

Hard to listen but I love the topics! Maybe spice it up somehow!

Also in your intros you say episode numbers to listen to first but there are no episode numbers in your titles or descriptions so how do I find those episodes? Count myself and hope the order I’m seeing is the same order you mean?
