Finally a devops podcast for enterprises
I've been waiting for a podcast like this that isn't just focused at startups and unicorns. Great interviews that give you great ideas and tools to apply devops in enterprises! I'm hooked and I hope you keep up the great work!
Real life talk
Excellent examples of doing DevOps in the “real world”. Awesome guests and the hosts are talented interviewers. This is a must-listen for anyone who is doing DevOps in the enterprise.
Motivational, inspiring and actionable
I've been following the the idea of DevOps for about a year now and until this podcast I figured it had to be a reserved practice for unicorns and startups. This podcast does an amazing job at highlighting the fact that DevOps isn't just for unicorns and start ups it can apply to enterprises as well. It's also inspired me to start these discussions internally at my company. Even though I'm an individual contributor on the Ops side I'm now equipped with the knowledge needed to start changing how we operate. Thank you and please keep producing this inspirational content.
