A Year of #c9d9: Our Top Continuous Discussions Podcast Episodes from 2015

We started our Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) video podcast in late 2014 as a way for the DevOps community to connect with each others - sharing experiences, lessons learned and tips - to accelerate our mutual success.

Each #c9d9 episode focuses on a different topic relating to your software delivery process, and features different speakers from around the development and IT community. Every two weeks, we get together for a casual video chat (over Hangout) to share best practices - and war stories - relating to real-world examples of implementing Agile, DevOps and Continuous Delivery.

For those of you wondering why the hashtag is #c9d9: #c9d9 is a play on the programmer meme of shortening long words to (first letter)(total number of letters - 1). E.g., programmers call "internationalization" "i18n". It's in the same vain as Andreessen Horowitz' ‘a16z‘ - a way for us to shorten a long phrase so that we could more easily use it on social media, etc.

After a little over a year on the air, the #c9d9 series has seen over 30 episodes, with more than 90(!) guest panelists who shared their expertise with us - and we thank them all.


Below is a countdown of our most popular #c9d9 episodes that aired during 2015 - for your binging pleasure!

How is DevOps going within your organization? If you need some help measuring just how well it is going, we have prepared a list of some key DevOps metrics to track. These metrics can help you understand how your team is doing over time. The word DevOps means different things to different people. Some say it a culture and every vendor in the industry claims that their tools help with DevOps. Depending on how you define DevOps, some of these metrics may matter more or less to you and your team.
