DevOps Cafe Episode 27

The Professor schools Skipper and Gilligan

Mark Burgess is a true computer science pioneer. Many of the ideas around server automation that we now consider self-evident DevOps best practices can trace their roots back to Mark's work. With his work in academia (Oslo University College) and his current focus on commercial concerns (cfengine), Mark makes for the the kind of guest that John and Damon love to have on the show.

DevOps Cafe Episode 26

Can you smell what the Adam is cooking?

Adam Jacob is our guest this week. Adam is the creator of Chef and the co-founder of Opscode. Its a great conversation that ranges from the state of the cloud, to DevOps for business transformation, to building an open source community, to automated orchestration, to even a bit of Chef.

DevOps Cafe Episode 25

PaaS is a four letter word if you aren't careful who runs it.

This week we switch it up and go for the manager's perspective. Mark Imbriaco joins us for a chat about his hip career path (37 Signals to Heroku to Living Social), how he puts the best of ideas of a PaaS to work, building a "Developer Happiness" team, distributed workforces, and more.
