Show Notes:

What have we done in 2022?

Feedback from you:

  1. You want to hear more about Observability, and places within modern IT where performance overlaps into other areas (DevOps, Platform Engineering, Chaos/Resilience, etc). So I will. 
  2. You want FEWER episodes. It’s hard to keep up with two per week. We are moving to once a week. 
  3. You want more content that shows how to use a product or how to solve a specific problem with a product or products. And so we will.
  4. You want more technical content in written form, like blogs. So I will be writing more in 2023.
  5. You also want to get a summary once a month from me of all the stuff I am doing in an easy to read email where you can quickly look through it and check out the things that interest you. We will be starting a mailing list.
  6. We will be expanding the rack of interesting stuff, so feel free to send me stuff to put on the wall. Contact me to find out where you can mail stuff to.
  7. We’ll be updating some of the look and feel of the show, upgrading cameras, equipment, the websites, etc
