This site has taken on a few iterations over the years. Originally started as a blog, it’s grown into a blog and a podcast, The Goat Farm. If you’re curious about the whole “Goat” theme, check an earlier blog post that explains the idea.
In the first season of the podcast (the first 13 episodes), Michael Ducy and Ross Clanton (Twitter/LinkedIn) explored the dynamic of DevOps in large enterprise IT organizations. The goal was to explore how companies were actually implementing the patterns and practices of DevOps, and the challenges they faced along the way.
Season 2 takes on another topic that’s similar to season 1, but a bit different. In season 2, Michael explores how Cloud Native and Serverless are impacting DevOps adoption in enterprises. How are enterprises changing their DevOps adoption patterns? How are enterprises overcoming organizational inertia to enable adoption of Cloud Native and Serverless. Season 2 also changes the interview format. Instead of a long episode interviewing the same guests, Michael interviews guests as he travels the globe, sitting down with guests over coffee, a drink, or at a conference.
