An Extended Explanation of Caching

Caching can be like regex. If you've got a problem and not a clear understanding of what you're trying to solve, you're going to end up with two problems. Understanding the mechanisms and types of caching possible from end user browsers down to in-memory databases can help clarify just what problem each layer of caching is designed to solve. Learn about what to cache, how to cache, and when to introduce caching into the mix of what you're building out. We'll talk about how to use CDN's, in memory, on disk, and cloud solutions when having to scale your applications with a caching solution.

Destroying DevOps Culture Anti-Patterns

The tech industry aligns with DevOps being a set of practices and culture that an organization uses to deliver operational excellence. DevOps should not be a team, tools, or something you hire a consultant for. In development or operations practices anti-patterns are behaviors that crop up which hinder the best efforts of an organization. Learn to how to identify these DevOps Culture Anti-patterns (like tribal knowledge, silos, etc.), and then attack them in specific ways to resolve these issues.

  • Tribal Knowledge
  • Super Hero Culture
  • Silos
  • Centralized Decision Making
  • Quality at the end of the development process
  • Information Hoarding
  • Manual processes

How you respond to and learn to change from failures will determine the outcome of your journey. A DevOps journey is just that, a road in which the final state is always reset once you cross the finish line and head towards the new goal.
