Introducing "ByteSized" DevOps Podcasts

Today we tried something a little different. As we've shifted the focus of the podcast to have more focus on SaaS, DevOps, Public Cloud and other topics, we've added number of new listeners (up 40% YoY). For many of them, these are new areas of technology. So we thought we'd add something new...

We're calling them "The Cloudcast - ByteSized", and they will be a series of ~ 10min podcasts that just cover the basics of a given topic or technology.

NOTE: We're still going to do (mostly) weekly shows in the normal formal as well. We'll just mix these in from time to time.

Here's the first batch. They should all be consumable independently, but we're also trying to loosely link them together.

You're the best audience in technology, so your feedback is greatly appreciated.

The Cloudcast - Eps.59 - Who's Your Puppet Master

Profile of Luke Kanies

Topic 1 - Highlights from the PuppetConf Opening Keynote:
  • Community, Community, Community
  • Buzz around the company reminds me of VMware in the early days
  • fail fast, move quickly, make mistakes, learn - Most big companies don’t do that
  • Puppet Certification
Topic 2 - Puppet is one of the tools that is often mentioned as being central to the DevOps movement. We are we with DevOps in the industry at this point? How well understood is it, where is it most widely used, and what are the next big hurdles to overcome? 

Topic 3 - Often times you’ll hear people say “Chef or Puppet” when talking about aspects of automation. Like most toolsets, people tend to have their favorites and various reasons why they prefer one vs. another.
(a) Why do you hear that people choose Puppet vs. other toolsets?

Questions from Twitter:
  1. “@mfdii: (Michael Ducy) did he really cuss out Mark Zuckerberg for going with @opscode chef?”
