#28 DevOps Diary | Kubernetes & Community Resources


This week: How to make the best out of blog tutorials, community highlights, intro to Docker & progressive delivery and lots of events

Hello beautiful people,

welcome to another week & another newsletter. I hope you are doing well. The past weeks have been soo busy – who had a chance to attend KubeCon? Which were your favourite talks?

Once the recordings are out, I will share a newsletter with a list of my favourites. In the meantime, let's check out the content I found in particular useful for my learning throughout the past weeks.

Community πŸ‘₯

Civo launched the first managed Kubernetes Service powered by K3s! Check out the launch video πŸ₯³

Book Picks Of The Week πŸ“š

Google's SRE Book – which has been referenced in multiple KubeCon presentations. Behold, a lot of my content will focus on the SRE aspect of DevOps πŸ™‚

Blog Posts (and other written content)πŸ—žοΈ

Today's blog resources focus around a specific tip:

If you want to learn about a specific technology, identify companies that are heavily using it and check out their blog. Usually companies have a special interest to provide up-to-date resources that are easy to follow. Additionally, it is much easier to find qualitative information this way than looking through Medium and various personal blogs.

So here is a list of company-run engineering blog posts:

Of course, there are many company-specific blogs, tutorials and guides that will provide you with specific guidance e.g.

  • Sysdig has several amazing tutorials around monitoring and security
  • Civo has a collection of guides (largely driven by the community) that will introduce you to pretty much any cloud-native technology

Are there any blog posts that you are especially fond of? Share them in the community.
