VSHN.timer #209: Learning from Failure
Welcome to another VSHN.timer! Every Monday, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all stuff coming out of our own chat system, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.
This week we’re going to talk about the various ways life teaches us lessons through mistakes, failures, bugs, and other ignominies.
1. Astrofuturist, Engineer, and Entrepreneur, Chris Lewicki once almost single-handedly destroyed a 500 million USD Mars rover… but went on to become Flight Director of the Spirit and Opportunity missions.
3. Lots has been written about the contrast between working for a FAANG or a small startup. Daniel Angell discovered the ups and downs of both places and tells his story.
4. Firefox is switching from Mercurial to Git, and one engineer had more to do with that switch than anyone else. Here is their story.
5. If your talk proposal for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon was turned down, no worries; send it to Cloud Native Rejekts and teach the community about your discovery and projects anyway.
Have you had your talk suggestion for KubeCon been rejected? What was the worst bug you’ve ever shipped to production? Would you like to share your engineering horror stories with our readers? Get in touch with us, and see you next week for another edition of VSHN.timer.
