It's been a busy week over here in Ops Land, so we're diving right in today and kicking off with some of our new members' contributions:
I will love to know which architecture you are currently using or plan to use and why you choose it. You can put those in the comment box.
Meanwhile, @lfuleki has a question about Oracle and Azure and pipelines that @xaviermignot has helpfully had a go at answering, so if you'd like to add some ideas to the conversation, you know what to do 😉
👉 If you're new here and would like some suggestions for people to follow who share your interests, we welcome you to share a bit about what you're working on and what you're like to learn and share!
We have had such treat of terrific content this past week. Some of my highlights include:
- This helpful post from the Lob team on starting a new job as a Staff+ level engineer ✨
- A couple of in-depth posts from the Blink team: this one from @johnson_brad kicking off a new series on operational excellence with an intro to nocode automations for DevOps, and one from @patrick_londa on manually rotating your GCP keys as a security (a follow-up to Patrick's post from last week about retiring unused AWS passwords) 🔐
- We had a healthy dose of #iac this week, with @argonaut comparing infrastructure-as-code tools, @eriklz running us through a tutorial to import resources into a Pulumi stack, and @javi_labs sharing a tutorial on writing a Terraform module that will allow you to read and write to an external service that doesn't have a Terraform provider. To everyone who created (and anyone who kept up with) all this great content, every single one of y'all are my hero of the week 🦸♀️
- For those who make it out to AWS re:Invent, you know the PagerDuty team were repping, as always, while @jatin made sure we got a fresh tutorial for the newly-revealed service AWS CodeCatalyst mentioned in @eyalestrin's summary of Werner Vogels' keynote, and Eyal made sure we didn't miss Adam Selipsky's keynote either!! 🔥
We really do have the most helpful and supportive community, don't we? 🌈
👉 Let me and the community know by commenting below. I may not be able to keep up with y'all 😅 but I'll do my best to check back with you next week to see how it went!
