Welcome to November’s newsletter. Needless to say the theme for November has to be ‘Lockdown 2’! I think we have all been more prepared for this one! Did you take advantage of it or do anything differently? At the risk of sounding sickeningly healthy and smug, I decided to go alcohol free, step up the exercise and read a self-help book, Tiny Habits by BJ Fogg, PhD Stanford University, which has really helped my perception and success in forming positive habits! I’d recommend it. Although it must be said, the temptation of the kitchen with the availability of home cooked food for breakfast, lunch, dinner and for snacking has been a disadvantage for me. It has been lovely to be at home again with the family but now it’s time for me to get back to the office next week!
The WinOps Lite virtual conference was a great success. Thanks to all who took part and attended. The event was recorded so please make sure you register to the newsletter on the WinOps site and/or subscribe to the WinOps YouTube channel to be alerted as soon as the videos go live.
November saw Puppet release their annual “state of DevOps report” which is an interesting annual read. Big news also in DevOps mergers and acquisitions, ECS Digital have this week been acquired by USA based GlobalLogic. Yet another example of a USA giant being snapping up an enterprising UK firm. Congratulations to the ECS Digital team! Here’s an article on it. In other affairs thank goodness the American elections are over and on home soil dare I mention the ‘B word’??!
Christmas is coming! With lockdown now over, I especially wish everyone in their work, businesses and their personal lives a prosperous and enjoyable run up to the festive season.
