Hello beautiful people,
and welcome to Week 30 of DevOps Diaries – to those who are already subscribed, thank you so much for your support!
I hope you are enjoying this newsletter. If you have any feedback, anything you would like to have highlighted, please do reach out.
Today's content is going to be focused on a broad range of topics, including lots of learning resources, exam preparation, podcasts and conferences. Enjoy!
CloudNative.tv has launched last week and the first shows have already been soo amazing! We have daily shows, so make sure to check them out to listen to interviews with maintainers, learn how to contribute to CNCF projects or to see how far you can take cloud native projects in your own deployments!
You can see the full schedule here. Make sure to follow to be able to participate in the conversations during the streams.
I am hosting a show called 100Days, in which we will explore new CNCF projects, how to start learning about them and the beginner content available.
I want to highlight an amazing podcast called "100 Moments That Rocked Computer Science" by the amazing Professor Sue Black. In each episode, Sue is interviewing interesting and influential people in tech.
The first episode is on "The Birth of the Internet Search" + the show has the best sound track!
