A DevOps Interview Series By @VictorOps | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

An interview series featuring my DevOps friends, letting them talk about what they have planned for 2015

What’s Planned for 2015? A DevOps Interview Series

By Jason Hand

I’m not one for lofty or overly-ambitious New Year’s resolutions, but I do feel that the beginning of the year is an excellent time to set  goals and make some changes in the name of continuous improvement.

A personal goal I set for myself this year was to do better about staying in touch with friends and family. Often times I feel like I rely on social media to fill me in on what everyone who is important to me is up to. While social media is great and I love seeing pictures and reading about everyone’s personal and professional adventures, it lacks a true emotional and personal connection that only comes from spending quality time with each other, communicating directly with one another .

I’ve decided that this effort should be extended beyond my own family and personal friends.

Over the next several months, I’m going to share with you an interview series featuring my DevOps friends, letting them talk about what they have planned for 2015. To preview some of the folks I’ll be communicating with, I’ve put together a teaser of who I’ll be talking with in one form or another. All of them have some very exciting things coming up and I can’t wait to share with you what they are.

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.

We will discuss patterns for end to end TLS, session management, scaling to absorb attacks and mitigation techniques.
