    Learning Kubernetes isn’t easy. In fact, there are so many places to start that people literally don’t know where to begin. Do they learn Kubernetes security? Networking? Infrastructure? Development?

    With so many options comes a ton of confusion. In this episode, Michael Levan catches up with Kevin Evans and Robin Smorenburg to talk about their journeys into Kubernetes, how each of them started, their learning resources, and where they’re at now.

    Day Two Cloud 159: DevOps Is A Failure

    Day Two Cloud 159: DevOps Is A Failure

    DevOps originated as a cultural movement to try and get developers and infrastructure operators to better work together to support applications in production. According to our guest Lee Briggs, that movement has failed. Today, according to Lee, the only people practicing “DevOps” are operators, and most DevOps tools are focused on operators, not developers. He writes “DevOps is about people on the operations side of the fence trying to convince Developers to do things their way.” That’s not going to happen.

    On today’s episode we’ll examine Lee’s argument, discuss what happened to this cultural movement, and examine ways to bring developers into the circle. Guest is Lee Briggs has fifteen years of in-the-trenches experience as a help desk admin, a system administrator, an infrastructure engineer, and site reliability engineer. Today’s show was spurred by a blog post he wrote.
