#3 DevOps Diary: Helm(ets) on

Welcome beautiful people,

I hope you are healthy and happy — and ready to dive into more DevOps topics 🎉

I want to hear from you!!! 🙏🏼

If you are like me (or the opposite) and you would love to share interesting topics in the DevOps space on a regular basis within a smaller group — Please let me know! I want to start a DevOps learning group to make this more fun and to encourage more knowledge sharing!

So let's start creating exciting DevOps content 🙌🏼🙌🏽🙌🏿

You can reach me on Twitter DM, contact me, or message me on Telegram (username: @URLICHSANAIS)

Editor Note (I.e. me, writer, author, editor, wannabe meme generator)

A lot of the stuff I am coming across does not make it into the newsletter — sometimes I listen to podcasts and read blog posts to discover that they are not as good as that I want to "collect" them. So I hope you bear with me in the process of finding sexier sources. 👯‍♀️

News 📣

  • Flux 2 is going to come out soon!!! You can already see a sneak-peak in the repository and view some videos from their recent meetups by Leigh Capili
  • Helm made updates to the location of Stable and Incubator Charts — if you are curious and you want to know more about what this means, or maybe you are affected, head over to their blog.

Videos 🎥

  • I came across this YouTube Channel on the weekend; while it is not DevOps specific, Chuck definitely knows what he is talking about ➕ his videos are highly entertaining!!!
  • If you want to get started with Kubernetes — I made a tutorial (video and written) on how to set-up microk8s on Ubuntu (similar to the more discussed minikube) — And then you can either learn Kubernetes the hard way or use Helm for a smoother onboarding experience 😁 Leading me to the next section...

Blog Posts 🗞️

Podcasts 🎙️

I have looked through several DevOps-related podcast recommendations; and these are the ones I definitely liked the most so far:

Podcasts and events are selected based on industry-relevance, content-quality, and diversity (yes, I don't JUST want to listen to a men-only-club)

Events 🌍

In case you are curious on learning how GitOps is used in the full Application Lifecycle, someone who knows what he is talking about is giving a webinar TODAY — hope to see you there 👋🏽
