Mixtape: DJ Support: GitOps One Stop-Shop Event (Oct 2021)

https://www.mixcloud.com/dholbach/dj-support-gitops-one-stop-shop-event-oct-2021/ In my day job (in the IT world) we staged an online event in Oct 2021. As with past events like these, it makes the event a lot more fun if you have music in between quite technical talks and folks can get up from your desk and dance while you grab a new cup of tea. On Mixcloud it’s my first mix using a DJ controller - it’s a very recent development for me....

GitOps Days 2021 Tracklist

Earlier this week it was time for GitOps Days again. The third time now and the event has grown quite a bit since we started. Born out of the desire to bring GitOps practitioners together during pandemic times initially, this time we had a proper CFP and the outcome was just great: lots of participation from a very diverse crowd of experts - we had panels, case studies, technical deep dives, comparisons of different solutions and more....

Mixtape: Gitops Days 2020 EMEA Minimix

I was lucky to support GitOps Days 2020 EMEA last week. The community of GitOps practitioniers came together again for round two and we saw lots of very engaged discussion and new ideas. It was a great pleasure to play at the event and bring some playfulness and silliness to the breaks in between. As last time I found it a bit hard to read the crowd (you can’t see anyone), so I tried to pick from a variety of styles of danceable music....

Gitops Days - Day 2 playlist

GitOps Days are over now - what a blast I had. Even though it was long hours, it was so much fun supporting the event: such a friendly and engaged audience (loads of great questions and discussion on Slack), excellent - very experienced and fun speakers, and a super well-organised team! Thanks everyone who made these two days as special as they were! 💓 It has happened before: people were picking a DJ name for me....

Gitops Days - Day 1 playlist

What a brilliant day 1 of GitOps Days it was. Weeks of hard work from a great team went into this, as was quite apparent. Minor glitches, some last minute shuffling of speakers, but apart from that very very seamless. (You can still sign up and get links to the recordings.) I had a bit of an unusual role: I was DJing at an online event. Some questions online were about the setup and why I wasn’t changing records during playing (well spotted!...

2 Years at Weaveworks

Time flies when you’re having fun: it’s now been two years since I started working at Weaveworks and I 💕 the experience it’s been. Back then I was just concluding my sabbatical and had started pursuing a second career in that year. So my mind wasn’t exactly in the tech space, still I felt rested and open to new challenges. In the meantime, many old friends had already waved over from Cloud Native land and tried to lure me there....

What's been happening in Ignite

First of all: thanks Dennis Marttinen and Lucas Käldström for helping write this up. It’s been only a bit over a month since Weave Ignite was announced to the world (others talked about it as well). Time to catch up on what happened in the meantime, the team around it has been busy. If you’re new to Weave Ignite, it’s an open source VM manager with a container UX and built-in GitOps management (check out the docs)....

Weave Scope and Weave Flux @Hacktoberfest

Long time no blog It’s been a busy half a year since my last blog post. Immersing myself in the cloud native world and my non-work related training kept me quite busy. I learned quite a lot and it’s been a very rewarding experience, but whenever I thought “hey, I should blog about this”, something else came up which grabbed my attention. This time I wanted to get the word out about a fun project I was involved in and reflect a bit on some aspects of these last six months....

A month with Dell XPS 13 (9370)

After years of using Thinkpads, I went for a Dell XPS 13 with Ubuntu. Although I had bought devices with Linux pre-installed and laptops for friends as well, this was going to be my first own laptop coming with Ubuntu straight from the factory. The hardware The specs looked great (big SSD disk, enough memory to play around with VMs/containers, etc.), but I had to brush away some fond memories of old laptops, where I was able to easily replace parts (memory, screen, disk, power jack, keyboard and more for my x220)....
