A podcast about everything that happens after `git push` Justin Garrison & Autumn Nash explore all things DevOps, infra, cloud & running apps in production. Whether you’re cloud native, Kubernetes curious, a pro SRE, or just operating a VPS… you’ll love coming along for the ride. Some people search for ShipIt or ShipItFM and can’t find the show, so now the strings ShipIt and ShipItFM are in our description too.

From Kubernetes to Nix

From Kubernetes to Nix


Why would you want to switch your developer environments from containers to nix? Ádám from LastPass has a few reasons.
Verónica López, Kubernetes SIG Release tech lead & distributed systems engineer, joins Justin & Autumn to share her experiences deploying services at scale.
SoCal Linux Expo

SoCal Linux Expo


Justin & Autumn take you with them to the 2024 SoCal Linux Expo where they asked six fellow attendees about their favorite open source projects and their least favorite commands.
What’s the difference between productivity engineering and platform engineering? How can you continue to re-platform with a moving target? On this episode, we’re joined by Andy Glover, who spent ten years productivity engineering at Netflix, to discuss.
Containers on a diet

Containers on a diet


Kyle Quest joins the show to tell Autumn & Justin all about the evolution of DockerSlim & minimal container images. Why are small container images important? What are different strategies to make containers smaller? Let’s find out!
Autumn and Justin are joined by Chris Swan to discuss tech industry trends like AI and sustainability, gamifying the software development process and motivating devs to write more secure code, OpenSSF Scorecards and how they offer a way to measure and improve the security and compliance of GitHub repos, the scoring system, and the security posture of a repository.
Wanny Morellato & Deepak Mohandas from Kong join Justin & Autumn to discuss building, testing & running a load balancer that can run anywhere.



What do you do when your infrastructure runs 1000 miles away and you only have access every 90 minutes? Find out from Andrew Guenther from Orbital Sidekick.
We’re back! Jason Hall joins the show to tell Justin & Autumn all about how Chainguard builds hundreds of containers without a single Dockerfile.
This is our 9th Kaizen with Adam & Jerod. We start today’s conversation with the most important thing: embracing change. For Gerhard, this means putting Ship It on hold after this episode. It also means making more time to experiment, maybe try a few of those small bets that we recently talked about with Daniel. Kaizen will continue, we are thinking on the Changelog. Stick around to hear the rest.
Tim McNamara is known as New Zealand’s Rust guy. He is the author of Rust in Action, and also a Senior Software Engineer at AWS, where he helps other builders with all things Rust. The main reason why Gerhard is intrigued by Rust is the incredible resource frugality. Fewer CPUs means less energy used, which is good for the planet, and good for the monthly bill. This becomes most noticeable at Amazon’s scale, when S3, Lambda, CloudFront and other services start adding Rust components.
In our ops & infra world, we learn to optimise for redundancy, for mean time to recovery and for graceful degradation. We instinctively recognise single points of failure, and try to mitigate the risks associated with them. For some years now, Daniel Vassallo has been doing the same, but in the context of life & work. Daniel talks about the role of randomness, about learning from small wins & about optimising for a lifestyle that matches your true preferences,. Apparently, ideas too should be treated like cattle, not pets.
Last September, at the 🇨🇭 Swiss Cloud Native Day, Florian Forster, co-founder & CEO of ZITADEL, talked about why they switched to serverless containers. ZITADEL has a really interesting workload that is both CPU intensive and latency sensitive. On top of this, their users are global, and traffic is bursty. Florian talks about how they evaluated AWS, GCP & Azure before they settled on the platform that met their requirements.
Lars is big on Elixir. Think apps that scale really well, tend to be monolithic, and have one of the most mature deployment models: self-contained releases & built-in hot code reloading. In episode 7, Gerhard talked to Lars about “Why Kubernetes”. There is a follow-up YouTube stream that showed how to automate deploys for an Elixir app using K3s & ArgoCD. More than a year later, how does Lars think about running applications in production? What does simple & straightforward mean to him? Gerhard’s favourite: what is “human scale deployments”?
Marcos Nils has been into platform engineering for the best part of the last decade. He helped architect & build developer platforms using VMs & OpenStack, containers with Docker, and even Kubernetes. He did this at startups with 10 people, as well as large, publicly traded companies with 1000+ software engineers. Today we talk with Marcos about the hard parts of platform engineering.
Welcome to 2023! A new year is the perfect time to start with a fresh perspective. Given a few bare metal hosts with fast, local storage, how would you run your workloads on them? Would you cluster them for redundancy? What operating system would you choose? Steve Francis, CEO at Sidero Labs and Andrew Rynhard, CTO at Sidero Labs join us today to talk about running Talos Linux on bare metal.
Eight months ago, in 🎧 episode 49, Alex Sims (Solutions Architect & Senior Software Engineer at James & James) shared with us his ambition to help migrate a monolithic PHP app running on AWS EC2 to a more modern architecture. The idea was some serverless, some EKS, and many incremental improvements. So how did all of this work out in practice? How did the improved system cope with the Black Friday peak, as well as all the following Christmas orders? Thank you Alex for sharing with us your Ship It! inspired Kaizen story. It’s a wonderful Christmas present! 🎄🎁
Red Hat's approach to SRE

Red Hat's approach to SRE


Narayanan Raghavan leads the global SRE organization that runs Red Hat managed cloud services including OpenShift Dedicated, Azure Red Hat Openshift, Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS, and Red Hat OpenShift Data Science among others across the three major cloud providers: AWS, GCP & Azure. We start with a high-level discussion about DevOps, SRE & platform engineering, and then we dig into SRE specifics, including what it takes to safely roll out updates across many tens of thousands of OpenShift clusters.
In today’s episode, we have the pleasure of two guests: Whitney Lee, Staff Technical Advocate at VMware, the one behind the ⚡️ Enlightning episodes, and Mauricio Salatino, which you already know from 🎧 on Continuous Delivery for Kubernetes. The two of them gave the most amazing KubeCon NA Keynote last month: What a RUSH! Let’s Deploy Straight to Production! So how do we create an Internal Development Platform that enables anyone on the team to deploy straight to production with the confidence that everything will just work?
For our last 2022 Kaizen episode, we went all out: 💪 @jerod outdid himself in the number of improvements shipped between Kaizens 🕺 A few of our listeners contributed → prompted us to create a new contributing guide 🗺 We now have a new infrastructure diagram All of this, and a whole lot more, is captured as GitHub discussion 🐙 If you want to see everything that we improved, that is a great companion to this episode.

Am absolutely loving the #shipit pod from @changelog, every episode has been great so far. Love the interviews, conversations/discussions. Learning so much from it.
