Being Devops

Being Devops

By Gourav Shah
What started as just a discussion between community of practitioner 2009, Devops has evolved into a mainstream technology practice today. Taken over by the analysts, vendors and the thought leaders, I feel the real message of devops is lost somewhere. This podcast is my attempt to bring the focus back to the real, ground level Devops Engineers and SREs, the people who actually implement it. And the approach I take is by bringing the stories behind the people and technologies behind Devops.

"Seek and you will Receive" is been the key  philosophy that has helped Murtaja to overcome the challenges and transform his career from QA to Azure Devops Engineer today.  What inspires me from his story is he is been a self initiator, he does not hesitate to ask questions, seek help, and he has been investing in his learning, some of the traits that has helped him be better personally and professionally.  If you are a QA, and not sure whether Devops Engineer is a good career options you could take, this story is for you.

Episode #4 - Story of Networking in Kubernetes
Do you know Kubernetes does not provide networking, but rather relies on third party plugins for networking the pods ? When Kubernetes is so sophisticated, is not capable of networking pods by itself ? Why is it done this way ? How  Kubernetes networking evolved ? How does the networking really work with Kubernetes ?

And yeah, how I ended up contributing to the Kubernetes eco system  and one of its CNI plugins rather unknowingly ?  Tune in to this episode of Being Devops to get the whole story of Kubernetes Networking.
