Couple of days back I posted my POSSE plan for this website. One thing I managed to do was to make some changes on the site and posting quite regularly on this site and syndicating on linkedin and twitter.
I also made some changes on the site so that the images I upload are properly picked up on both of these social sites using the Open Graph and twitter cards.
However there are few other things which I would also like to do based on the principles of Indieweb. It is all about owning your data. There are few things which I would like to do more like posting pictures here instead of facebook and also make this site more organized.
Let us see how it goes.

Weather is really strange these days in London and surrounding areas. It was not like this last year. It is slightly more cold than usual since the last few days and it was snowing as well a bit.
Today however it snowed properly and it settled as well. It lasted for around 1 hour and it was a great sight. Currently it is quite cold in outside and there is a layer of white sheet everywhere.

Here is the video. I am learning #GoLang these days and as I am getting to know more about it I decided to also share my knowledge. I made this video to introduce #Go language. I hope it is useful. Thanks.

Today I came across Go programming language which I only heard of before but never tried. There are many things in the world that are interesting but you can delve into everything however Go also known as GoLang is kinda mature language now. It was first developer in 2009 and is evolving ever since.
So today being a Sunday (my day to work on side projects) I decided to do some research about it and I found some amazing stuff online, also tried this language and tried to understood the purpose why this language was created by Google and was adopted heavily by Docker.
So I made this presentation where I tried to summarize my findings.

Today for a change there is sun since morning, however the temperature outside is still freezing. So I was at home mostly and looking for some good resources on DevOps and I came across this interesting book.
The Devops Handbook: How to Create World-Class Agility, Reliability, and Security in Technology Organizations.
The book has very good reviews on amazon and goodreads. I also did some research online and found the the reviews to be consistent.
For decades, technology leaders have struggled to balance agility, reliability, and security, and the consequences of failure have never been greater. The effective management of technology is critical for business competitiveness. High-performing organizations are 2.5 times more likely to exceed profitability, market share,…

If you love Jenkins then you can't ignore these top 5 popular plugins to make your life easier. I am glad to know that Jira is part of the list and of course I am also biased about it. Lately I realised that majority of DevOps people love Jenkins a lot, although Bamboo is quite good as well and we as an Atlassian consultant working for clients in London and UK our preferred choice would be to first recommend a tool that can seamlessly integrate with not only Jira but also with Bitbucket.
Jenkins is still one of the most popular tool in the market and I also enjoy working on it. In the past few months I am doing a deep dive in DevOps and Jenkins being in the Center of Continuous Delivery and Continuous Integration I can not ignore it. Few years ago when we also used Jenkins for deploying…

I decided to spent the whole day today learning about Smart Contracts and understanding more about Blockchain. The plan is always a plan. I did start learning about it but then my neck started aching. I have bought some furniture after moving to London but still I don't have all the things yet. I bought sofa, dinning table, coffee table, bed and few small things but I never bought a proper office desk. Back in Delhi I have 5 desks at home. Crazy isn't it.
I was planning to buy one desk but never bought one yet but today some divine force pushed me to buy one desk so I reserved one desk on Argos website, drove to the nearest Argos and bought the desk. Yes finally I bought one table.
However in UK most of furniture needs to be assembled. To be honest I love DIY kind of stuff but sometimes…

Recently I posted a picture on twitter that DevOps is not a Goal it is a continuous process. Then one of my old friend and colleague Varun Chopra asked me what is DevOps in simple language. I am thinking of making a short video to explain to him. Of course by no means I am an expert but I do work on projects where we deploy Atlassian tools that helps those companies adopt DevOps process.
Let us see how this goes.

Recently I came across this post from Dries that also inspired me to change the approach I follow to post on social networking sites.
I post a lot on twitter, linkedin and facebook and I also aspire to write blogs regularly on this site which never really happens but I try and have been blogging actively for 10+ years now but sometimes I wish if I can post more. Posting content on socials is easy as you don't bother too much about the grammar and you don't think a lot when posting but when you write a blog you have a tendency to give your blog some structure.
The whole idea of POSSE - Publish (on your) Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere is to post the content on your own site where you own it and share it to other sites. So the content stay with you. You control it forever.
So here is the plan…

In an attempt to streamline the content that I want to syndicate to social I ended up reading a lot about Zapier and IFTTT. I actually had an account on both for a long time but never utilized them fully.
Read the following article to know more about both the services: https://tallyfy.com/zapier-vs-ifttt/
