New ByteSized DevOps Podcasts - Logging, Monitoring and Application State

A few weeks ago we introduced the ByteSized DevOps Podcast series. Initial feedback from the community was very strong, so we've decided to do some more. We plan to release a few every week or two. Let us know what topics you'd like to see covered.

Monitoring and Logging

Stateful vs. Stateless Apps

Krispy Kreme Challenge 2015

Once again, the best community in technology has come together for an outstanding cause. We want to thank all of our sponsors / donors for helping to raise $4125 for the NC Children's Hospital.

This is the 3rd year in a row that our community has been recognized as the largest donor. We've now raised nearly $15,000 to help children and their families struggling with life threatening diseases.

  • 2013 - $4310
  • 2014 - $5701
  • 2015 - $4125

Aaron and Brian finished the dozen donuts and the five miles is 59m:30s, which is the first time they have completed the challenge in under 1hr! With age comes greater eating skills and superior athletic ability...apparently.

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.
