I was in London for DevOpsDays last week. Great event. Here are some of my takeaways.
This blog comments on a variety of technology news, trends, and products and how they connect. I'm in Red Hat's cloud product strategy group in my day job although I cover a broader set of topics here. This is a personal blog; the opinions are mine alone.

Cool. I've been tempted to buy this but never quite reached that point. Of course, I also expect that this means future investment will be limited but that's not really a surprise.

This has sure been a long time winding down to absolute zero.

+Edward Morbius As I say. Agree to disagree. We have courts to make decisions (as they appropriately did in this case) and both sides have a right to competent counsel. Were I a lawyer I would have had no issue being involved with this case from either side. (I was involved, albeit not as a lawyer.)

Nice new Red Hat DevOps Insights page live!
DevOps gives you a “go fast” mode while modernizing classic IT. Learn how to solve business problems and adopt the DevOps approach to success.

My quote in here: “One of the points of devops is to enable better, easier, quicker, experimentation. More or less by definition, though, some experiments fail. If it doesn’t work, move on without repercussions. But fail quickly.”
The term 'devops' has been bandied about for years, but without a rigid definition there's still plenty of confusion to the jargon - is devops a dated buzzphrase that's had its day, or is it actually new best practice for business?

My recap of Connected Things 2016 run by the MIT Enterprise Forum last week. A lot of interest but a lot of people are still trying to get their arms around what it is, where the value comes from, and how to secure it.

The apparent final cleanup of the IBM-SCO case. I helped write one of the IBM expert witness reports in this case. We've been under court seal while the case was still technically open. The report itself is still under seal, sadly.

From Jason Bloomberg on spreading the DevOps "virus." Nice piece. This is also another good example of the overlap between open source practices and DevOps. Open source teams aren't necessarily small but there's certainly a lot of self-organization involved.

As an industry, we keep rediscovering that supposedly irrelevant implementation and operational details associated with the prior generations of technology still matter. In this case, the importance of having visibility into and control over the underlying operating system layers doesn't go away just because you're using containers.

Cloud strategy at Red Hat
Introduction
I'm in the cloud product strategy group at Red Hat. Prior to Red Hat, I wrote hundreds of research notes, was frequently quoted in publications like The New York Times on a wide range of IT topics, and advised clients on product and marketing strategies. Earlier in my career, I was responsible for bringing a wide range of computer systems, from minicomputers to large UNIX servers, to market while at Data General. Among other hobbies, I do a lot of photography and enjoy the outdoors.
