NEW survey of actual salaries for #DevOps professionals.
 
Working every day with online security and technology asset protection, +Imperva Incapsula  is uniquely positioned to gather meaningful data from #DevOps professionals.

"DevOps is a hot field and there are plenty of opportunities out there—but not all DevOps jobs and departments are created equal."

Here's their new DevOps Salary Survey 2015: Facts About DevOps Careers and Salaries

In a tech field? Wondering about DevOps?
Get your questions answered and see what your peers have to say.

This #whitepaper is an excellent example of how to take a popular topic and shed widespread light on it using an up-to-date survey of those involved in the day-to-day.

One question I had was about where women fit on the DevOps scene. The white paper has a section on gender breakdown and some insights.

36 Outrageous Headlines You Can't Help but Click
As a blogger, or entrepreneur, a headline could be the difference between being mediocre and taking it to the next level.

If your headline fails to grab attention, the rest of your post is frankly irrelevant. You know this, right?

That's why you need to take your headlines seriously.

You need to study proven headline formulas.
You need to use power words to add emotion.
You need to tweak every word until it's perfect.

What you need, are headlines that deliver that O-Factor. Simply put, outrageous. 

And in this guest post I wrote on Boost Blog Traffic, I provide 36 headlines that over-delivers on that O-Factor. Study them and learn how to bring the shocking power of being outrageous with your own headlines.

Hi Erik,

In my experience, the amount paid by sponsors varies greatly between niches. Finance related is highest, ranging from $175 to $600 while other niches are more likely to be hovering around $100-$200.

The chart Sue Anne created shows amounts that are probably what sponsors are paying the platforms like Cooperatize or LinkVehicle. This is not the amount the blogger / publisher will receive if they source sponsored content through a platform. Bloggers should expect only about half as much.

In order to make those rates it would be necessary to find your own sponsors outside of a platform.
