Submission + - The Dark Side of DevOps (chrisshort.net)

oaf357 writes: A lot of people think that DevOps, Cloud Native, Agile, GROWS, etc. are all rainbows and roses. You start small and work your way up to full blown operations or you decide as an organizational unit to change. These are the two patterns associated with a Jedi-type maturation process of DevOps. What if I told you that, like in Star Wars, DevOps has a dark side? I have seen the light side everyone thinks of and have carried the red lightsaber as well. Let's walk into the cave on Dagobah together.

Submission + - Empathy: The Emerging Art in DevOps (dzone.com)

oaf357 writes: I caught myself doing something last week that I often chastise others for. At that moment, I thought I was justified in doing it, too, which made it worse. The worst part was that I did it in front of a coworker. What was this DevOps sin? I did not show a customer empathy.

Submission + - lineinfile be damned (chrisshort.net)

oaf357 writes: The Ansible lineinfile module is designed to search a file for a line, and ensure that it is present or absent. lineinfile is very effective at that particular task. However, when the line has to be in a certain place or before or after a certain line, lineinfile becomes a hassle to manage. Most people on IRC (#ansible) tend to agree, lineinfile is not a very good module in practice. Even Brain Coca says to avoid the lineinfile module. But, there is one use case I have found where line in file really excels.

Submission + - Technical Debt and the Ongoing Battle Against It (chrisshort.net)

oaf357 writes: I have been trying to fit a lot of square pegs into round holes lately. Eliminating technical debt with modern day DevOps practices to reduce costs is seldom fun or glamorous but is very often beneficial. Reducing costs should be the mindset of IT and one surefire way to do that is to spend the right amount of time on a task to complete it successfully. Finding that balance is definitely tricky especially when a lot of us are human time division multiplexers now. But, that right combination of good work and adequate time spent is definitely out there.

Submission + - What Does Yahoo's Downfall Teach Us? (chrisshort.net)

oaf357 writes: What does Yahoo's downfall teach us? That you must bring together a great team. The assembled players have to push people to build great features (the content will come, as exemplified by Medium, Snapchat, Facebook, etc.). That team must also do its due diligence in an effort to add value to the company. Now we all get to see how Verizon will deal with Yahoo assuming that deal gets approved, of course.
