I'm super excited by this book for two reasons: (1) It explains the business case for devops in a way that speaks to executives. (2) It is based on real data with statistical correlation that show real cause and effect.

Feb. 28


ZFS Users Conference, April 19-20, Norwalk, CT

2019 feels like a long way off, but since the conference is in January, we need to start planning soon. The sooner we start, the less rushed the planning can be.

DevOpsDays New York City 2019: Join the planning committee!

I have to confess that working with the 2018 committee was one of the best and most professional conference planning experiences I've ever had. I've been involved with many conferences over the years and this experience was one of the best!

Male Ally Summit 2018 (NYC) DevOpsDays New York City 2018: Register now!

I invite new people to join the committee for 2019. The best way to learn about organizing is to join a committee and help out. You will be mentored and learn a lot in the process. Nothing involved in creating a conference is difficult, it just takes time and commitment.

Save 40-60% on the 3rd edition of TPOSANA

Interested in being on the next planning committee? An informational meeting will be held via WedEx on Tuesday, March 6 at 2pm (NYC timezone, of course!).

DevOpsDays New York City 2018 Speakers Announced!

During this kick-off meeting, the 2018 committee will review what roles they took on, what went well, what could be improved and the timeframe for the 2019 event. Please note, attendance to this meeting doesn't commit you to help organize this event, however, it is hoped by the end that we will be able to firm up who will comprise the 2019 event committee.

Quick! Install that Mac printer now! Nov. 29


Does your friend or significant other have a Mac from work that is locked down so that changes can't be made? Any attempt to make a chance in System Preferences asks for the admin password, which you don't have. Maybe they are a teacher at a school with overly-zealous sysadmins? Maybe they work at an insurance company that... just kidding, no insurance company supports Macs. Someone Who Isn't Me knows someone that has a Mac laptop and can't print to the home printers for exactly this reason. To print at home, they generate a PDF, copy the file to a USB stick, and walk it over to another computer that can print. That is ludicrous. Now is your chance to fix this. In macOS High Sierra, anyone can login as "root" with empty password. When asked for the admin username and password enter "root" as the user, then leave the password blank. Two this a second time and you'll unlock admin access. Now is your chance to install that printer, change the screen saver settings, enable Time Machine, or whatever you have been wanting to do. Apple will surely fix this soon. You probably only have hours or days to install all the printers and VPNs and other things you've been meaning to fix. Oh, but don't break any laws or company policies. Certainly don't create an account with admin privs, or give the primary user admin privs. That is probably against policy and could lead to productivity. More info here: https://twitter.com/lemiorhan/status/935578694541770752 Sorry... not sorry.

Productivity When You Just Can't Even Nov. 15


Ryn Daniels has written an excellent piece about time management and productivity when you are burned out. The advice is spot on. I also do these things when I'm not feeling my best too. "It's one thing to talk about productivity when you're already feeling motivated and productive, but how do you get things done when it's hard to even make it through the day?" https://superyesmore.com/productivity-when-you-just-cant-even0c73d6a1f086209af420c2ced442a2e8
