#20 DevOps Diary: Kubernetes and Community Resources
Welcome beautiful people!
Can you believe that it has already been 5 months since I started this newsletter? Thank you all for your support, subscribing, sending me motivational messages and more.
You Make This Possible! 🎉
Remember that you can always send me content that you would like to have included in the next newsletter.
This is for both, those, who are already familiar with the cloud-native ecosystem and those, who are just getting started. The CNCF runs a mentorship program the entire year around. If you have time to get involved and help others onboard, or you are currently in the onboarding process, have a look.
Book Picks Of The Week 📚
I think it is really important to remember that we are not reinventing the wheel but that we can get inspiration from existing projects to improve our own.
Have a look at "Shaping Science: Organizations, Decisions, and Culture on NASA’s Teams" by Janet Vertesi to learn more about formal structures, decision-making techniques, and informal work practices in the day-to-day process of mission planning between the involved teams.
Blog Posts (and other written content)🗞️
I am learning more about the shift from a monolithic architecture to Microservices. Not having come from a traditional infrastructure or engineering background, I am not too familiar with "the struggle of not using" Microservices and all the fancy cloud-native tools. Similarly, it is sometimes difficult to see the downside of those technologies. Have a look at this overview by Dave Farley on "The Problem With Microservices".
And lastly, I am hosting weekly Friday Tips for Codefresh. The last one provides an overview of Kubernetes naming conventions and making the best out of it. I mentioned that you want to use Helm instead of having your YAML go crazy — here is a really nice 8min introduction to Helm by Donovan Brown.
