Recordings + Slides from "Kubernetes at Reddit: An Origin Story" at KubeCon NA 2018

We were fortunate enough to be able to present some of what’s going on with Reddit’s Kubernetes adoption at KubeCon NA this year. Subject matter covered includes:

  • The motivations behind adopting Kubernetes.

  • The vision behind the things we are building on top of Kubernetes.

  • Some of the challenges we’ve faced in our journey.

  • How we’re using what we’ve built (and are building) to change how we develop, deploy, and operate software at Reddit.

If you are curious, see the recordings and/or the slides.

Recordings + Slides from OSCON 2018

I had the opportunity to present at OSCON 2018 this year. My session was Herding cat pictures: How to develop, deploy, and operate services at Reddit scale. I talked through our rapid growth as an engineering org, some of the growing pains that resulted, and how we shifted our Infrastructure team from operations to enablement.

  • If you'd like to hear my bumbling, check out the recording.
  • I've also posted the slides.

python-colormath 3.0.0 released

After a lengthy delay, python-colormath 3.0.0 has been released. The big changes are requiring networkx>=2.0 and shifting our Python 3 support from 3.3/3.4 to 3.5/3.6. See the release notes for the full details.

Impending Archival

I'll probably give this release a while to simmer in the wild to make sure I didn't break anything. At some arbitrary point in the next few months, I intend to archive python-colormath in Github so users understand that it will no longer be maintained. This codebase is now ten years old, needs more love than I can afford to give it, and I'm very far from this subject matter these days.

If you are interested in taking the reigns, please get in touch with me and we can talk potential fit!

Update: Jan 2018

We have some preliminary interest, so the project remains un-archived. We're working through a few updates and will see if activity remains steady enough to transfer the project over!
