I follow quite a few sysadmin blogs, and a lot of people are working on some really cool cutting edge stuff. It is easy to then think what you’re doing isn’t even worth writing about.
We are all trying to make incremental progress. In my present role we’ve made some incredible progress over the past couple of years moving to an incredibly stable environment.
For instance, our applications were not developed using perfect Agile methods and aren’t containerized with Docker running on top of OpenStack instances, but what we are doing is some of the best my group has ever done, and our customers are satisfied with what we’re providing.
Keeping that in mind, we’re also a lot further ahead than a lot of other people, and as result, I think it is important that we share what we’re doing so we can help others along the way.
