In focus: DevOps in 2020

With our calendars flipping to 2020, we can say for sure that 2019 was a great year for DevOps and cloud native world. DevOps culture continued to prove its value which was most notably visible through Accelerate State of DevOps Report 2019 – this is a must-read! We have seen further rise of Kubernetes platform, Red Hat OpenShift 4 was released, IBM released its Cloud Paks, AWS Fargate was getting traction and several good books were published including Devops For Dummies, The Unicorn Project, and Monolith To Microservices. And we have started publishing 0800-DEVOPS newsletter!

The way 2019 ended, I have no doubts that 2020 will be equally interesting. Looking at current trends, here is my take on what we can expect from DevOps in enterprises in 2020.

Riding with the King

Kelsey Hightower is a Staff Developer Advocate at Google and co-chair of KubeCon, the largest Kubernetes conference. In reality, Kelsey needs absolutely no introduction in the cloud native world. I’m always amazed at how open and approachable this guy is! I managed to grab some of his time and here are some parts of what turned out the be one of the most interesting conversations I had on cloud native topic.

“Riding with the Queen/King” is our series featuring short interviews with super interesting people from the field of technology.
