DOP 251: Demystifying Modern Message Brokers with Memphis.dev

2/21/2024
#251: We're becoming more and more dependent on sophisticated systems that transport data from one part of our application to another. This infrastructure, often referred to as message brokers, is a vital backbone supporting many products we use daily. But are we fully leveraging their power and simplicity? In this episode, we speak with Valera Bronshtein, Director of Infrastructure at Memphis.dev, about event-based architectures and why using effective message brokers doesn't have to be hard or complicated.

DOP 250: From Godfather of DevOps to Godfather of AI

2/14/2024
#250: Sure, we can use Generative AI to write code for us and generate cool pictures...sometimes. But who has the responsibility for making sure all that infrastructure stays up and running? Look no further than your favorite sysadmin or cloud engineer. There is nothing new under the sun... In this 250th episode, we have our friend Patrick Debois back on to talk about how he's researching we can use Generative AI beyond just the typical use cases that we see today and why understanding how to integrate all these new tools together may be more important than learning how to be a prompt engineer (whatever that means).

DOP 249: How To Choose Between Open Source and Commercial Software

2/7/2024
#249: One of the prominent discussions in the software industry is the concept of 'build versus buy.' Often the argument focuses on creating a whole system from scratch or opting for pre-built solutions. But think about it. You never start from absolute zero. When you begin developing an application, it isn't devoid of pre-existing libraries or systems. It's about identifying the point on the spectrum from which you initiate your development journey. In this episode, we speak with Hadi Chami from LEADTOOLS about how the key factors such as pricing, licensing model, support, maintenance, and the impact on the end product play significant roles in making this 'build versus buy' choice.

DOP 248: How To Use ChatGPT for DevOps

1/31/2024
#248: When thinking about starting to learn a new technology, where do you start? Are you so busy at work that you're not able to spend any time learning something new? Are you concerned that when your company finally jumps on the AI bandwagon, will you be left behind? In this episode, Darin and Viktor talk about when and how you might want to start preparing yourself for the situation that will probably be arriving sooner than you think.

DOP 247: Navigating the Nuances of Developer Relations

1/24/2024
#247: What do you think of when I say “Developer Relations”? Is it a person that flys from conference to conference giving talks? Is it someone that is chasing you down to scan your badge in a booth? What if the answer to both of those questions is both yes and no? In this episode, we speak with Lian Li about the realities of developer relations and how developer relations isn’t just something you buy off the shelf.

DOP 245: Building Your Best Team Ever

1/10/2024
#245: Imagine this. You think you've been hired into a team of all A players. Think Wayne Gretsky, Michael Jordan, Lionel Messi, etc. Instead, what's really happened is you've been assigned to the team that is nothing more than the people that played behind the people that played behind the A players. Yeah, you've been demoted to the third string team. You think, ok, at least I made a team and I'm not bagging groceries (is that still a thing?) down at the local market. Now that you're on a team, how do you plug in and help make the team better? In this episode, we speak with Dr. David Burkus about his latest book “Best Team Ever”. We go into the 3 key areas that both the manager and the players need to understand in order to actually create a team that might even be able to beat a team of A players.

DOP 241: From Restaurant Server to KubeCon Keynote in Under 4 Years

12/13/2023
#241: On today's episode, we go in depth with one of our friends, Whitney Lee. You may know her from her Enlightening series on Tanzu.TV or maybe from the You Choose videos she does with Viktor. But did you know just over 4 years ago, she was a server in a vegetarian restaurant and since that time she's spoken five times at KubeCon conferences - 2 of which were keynotes? What'll you'll learn is that just because you don't have a CS degree doesn't mean that you can't do great things in tech.

DOP 240: Supercharging Developer Workflows with Simplified Platform Engineering

12/6/2023
#240: Imagine being handed a nicely-wrapped box containing Platform Engineering, much like when we were sold DevOps in a Box. An enigmatic gift, with potential benefits yet accompanied by potential complexities. It calls to question - how is this different from the countless developer platforms we've seen companies launch over the years? In this episode, we speak with Mauricio Salatino about his take on where platform engineering is today and where it's headed in the future.

DOP 238: Unlocking the Potential of Modern Architectures Using Service Mesh

11/22/2023
#238: You might just now be reaching the point of containerizing your workloads and running them in Kubernetes. However, how do you go about accessing those workloads? You might have started with an ingress, because other options seemed like they were too complex. However, you've now crossed the point where you need that complexity. That's where service mesh can help you out. On this episode, we speak with Marino Wijay, Principal Developer Advocate at solo.io, about how service mesh has evolved over time, the challenges of adopting certain models, and the advantages of open-source solutions. We also talk about the differences between sidecar and sidecar-less models, and the circumstances in which either might be appropriate.

DOP 236: Efficient Cloud Cost Optimizations with Profisea Labs

11/8/2023
#236: As you are heading into budget season for 2025, you're probably trying to figure out how to eliminate as much wasteful cloud spend as you can. But how did you get here? Instead of trying to reduce your cloud spend, maybe you should think about not spending the money in the first place. In this episode, we speak with Anton Grishko, Chief Architect at Profisea Labs, about the necessity of building cost-efficient architectures and how AI is reshaping the FinOps landscape.

DOP 235: Diving Into Platform Engineering Trends With Humanitec

11/1/2023
#235: In the mid-2000s, Werner Vogels introduced the idea of "you build it, you run it". This concept suggested that the same team responsible for building a product should also be responsible for running and maintaining it. However, despite the initial enthusiasm, we have yet to see this phrase truly materialize in practice. The industry has faced challenges in fully realizing the "build it, run it" philosophy. In this episode, we speak with Kaspar von Grünberg, founder & CEO at Humanitec, about why "shifting left" to the developers really isn't all it's cracked up to be and how instead cleaner abstractions can bridge the gap in understanding between non-technical managers and the developers in the trenches.

DOP 234: Better Bare Metal Infrastructure Management With RackN

10/25/2023
#234: The shift to cloud computing has greatly increased the popularity of infrastructure as code. But think about it. Cloud is nothing more than an abstraction on top of bare metal servers. Why can't we just as easily manage our bare metal servers as code as well?

What if instead you could sit down and actually run through simulations that were created from actual events?
