DevOps Interview: Jason Dixon By Jason Hand If your primary role within your organization is Operations, you likely realize the importance and significance of monitoring. The DevOps philosophy teaches us that measuring and collecting as much as possible is critical to not only the health of infrastructure, but it also plays a critical role in the architecting efforts of both software and hardware. Jason Dixon of Librato knows this better than many and has made a career of helping others understand and implement the best tools and processes of successful monitoring. Known by many and first introduced to me as the “Graphite Guy”, Jason’s expertise goes far beyond his contributions to this and other open source projects.

Microservices are untyped (they communicate via JSON) however it is often the approach to write a client library on top of a JSON API, taking a weakl... (more)

DevOps and Agile | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Agile #Microservices

DevOps and Agile: As Tasty as Chocolate and Peanut Butter? By Tara Calihman It’s easy to understand the confusion that is caused when the terms Agile and DevOps start getting tossed around. Buzzword bingo, here we come. But these two terms are more than just marketing speak – they’re technical movements born out of the desire to deliver better software, collaborate more effectively and bring a more robust end product to users. There’s a direct connection between DevOps and Agile that goes beyond sharing key principles. We’ve riffed on this before in a blog post discussing how D... (more)
