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/

Trying to make it work but for some reason it is not working. May be I need to configure my RSS feed in slightly different way.

Just setup IFTTT to auto post content from my blog to my twitter feed. I am doing this using the RSS feed. Let us see how it works.

In the morning in the train going to office and explaining my friend Jasvinder ther difference between Bitbucket pipelines and Bamboo.
Today in the morning I started creating these short posts called "notes" and the idea is the post the content first on my blog instead of social sites but of course the content if needed can be shared on those social networking sites.
