DevOps Shorts

DevOps Shorts

By Ant Weiss
The show where we invite wonderful human beings to have a lightning-fast conversation about Devs, Ops and other Mythical Creatures. The show where each episode only lasts 15 minutes and we are focused on asking only 3 questions. So it’s short and sweet? Why? Well, because if there’s one thing we know it’s that great delivery comes in small batches.
