Nashville DevOpsDays Thanks

When I moved to Nashville in 2014, I had a lot of uncertainty about what the tech scene was like. If you’d told me that within a few years I would be helping to run the city’s first DevOpsDays, I’m sure I would have scratched my head in puzzlement. Yet, we just wrapped it up! Much thanks goes out to

Web operations conferences

Last year I started keeping a list of conferences I was interested in. I had the idea that this might make a good community resource, so today I built webopsconferences.com. The goal is to be an up-to-date, no-frills list of conferences of interest to people working in the field of web operations. Contributing to it is as simple as editing a YAML file. I hope it’s useful to someone!

Interview questions

While preparing for my round of onsite interviews at Eventbrite, I spent some time coming up with questions tailored to the different roles of the people I’d be meeting with. I thought I would share those here.

Lwn subscription

I just renewed my subscription to LWN for another year. While it’s true that I could read their content for free a week after it’s released, LWN’s reporting is so much better than anything else out there that I want to help provide the financing to continue it. It would be terrible to see them go the way of The H. If your livelihood depends in some way on Linux or the broader open source software ecosystem and you’re not already a LWN reader, peruse their weekly edition archives and consider subscribing too.
