The more I read articles that purport to tell me why enterprises fail at DevOps, the more I realize that the conventional wisdom is off base. It's not that what the experts highlight is totally wrong, or that the issues they raise aren't important elements of DevOps in the enterprise. But these "Here are a few simple things holding you back, but once you do this you'll reach DevOps Nirvana" articles are fundamentally misguided and counterproductive, and they actively prevent DevOps progress.
For two weeks every winter, thousands of people from all over the world make a pilgrimage to Santa Rosa, California, to wait in line for up to nine hours. They're rewarded with a beer, or three. If that seems crazy to you, maybe this story will sway you, or at least help you understand why. The beer is Russian River Brewing Company’s “Pliny the Younger,” a 10.25% alcohol content, triple IPA with a 2,000-year-old name reference better explained here.
At a time when online giants dominate the retail world, there is also a lot of success for small business, and one of those stories is in National City. Twelve years ago, Kellie Defries decided to try and make her hobby more than that by starting a company called Crystal Ninja. From her studio apartment in Pacific Beach, Defries would glue crystals onto anything anyone wanted. Over the past 12 years, she’s taken some pretty interesting orders.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
