Over the years, my studies have inspired a number of posts here on the blog, and for good reason. Learning has been a significant inspiration for me on a number of areas. Sharing what I have learned and how that has affected my thinking on a number of areas has been a useful part of the studies.

I have, for some time now, been reading up on DevOps. One thing that, for some reason, keeps coming up, is that people seem to think that there is a fundamental incompatibility between DevOps and ITIL. The more I read, however, the more it becomes clear that there is no disparity at all between them. If you have been following my blog for a while, it should be fairly obvious that I have drunk the ITIL Kool-aid. Simply put, I think any operations shop that is not implementing ITIL is doing it wrong.
As I’ve made pretty clear, I’m – among many other things – a YouTuber. I have two YouTube channels, and watch a fair amount of content put out by other creators, too. Whenever I come across a video that seems interesting, I add it to my Watch Later queue, so that I can view it at my leisure. From time to time, I use the “Remove Watched” feature, to remove watched videos from my Watch Later queue in bulk, instead of having to remove them manually.
Since I started really reading up on DevOps, I wanted to see what the job market for DevOps was like. The results were less than exciting. Though the search term DevOps returned a fair number of results, none of the listings demonstrated an understanding of what DevOps is. What they demonstrated was the fact that DevOps is a term in vogue, one which generates buzz and interest.
