Devops and Dadops Karthik Gaekwad @iteration1 Devopsdays Austin 2018
Hi! • I’m Karthik Gaekwad • @iteration1 on twitter • Managed Kubernetes service at
Oracle: Austin, hiring developers!
Going to be a new dad soon…
John Willis - @botchagalupe
Me: “We’re expecting our first in May”….. “It’s an amazing experience…” “I have 2 kids, and the first year is a week by week thing..” “I wasn’t sure what to do at first, but I figured it out along the way”
Culture • • •
Similar to what we do in devops… “Kubernetes solved a lot of our problems” “I had no idea what to do when I was on call to support the Kubernetes cluster, but I learned along the way” Similarity: Real talk, pros and cons
Sharing • • • • •
Clothing, toys, tools: shared with people/handmedowns Lots of tools- lots of vendors!! babygearlab.com People tell you what works, and what doesn’t “Sometimes you test in production”
Automation We already do this in real life…
Automation @scottsbaldwin: “My kids are notorious for not turning off lights.” “…and I have 4 kids, so everything is on all the time” https://twitter.com/scottsbaldwin
Automation But things can go horribly wrong. Kid: “Alexa turn on lights” Parent: “Alexa turn off lights” Kid: “Alexa turn on lights”… RBAC for Alexa?

Measurement… Measurement % of baby weight lost in 1st week… Baby percentiles during pregnancy…. Number of diapers used in a day Baby monitoring
Measurement… Measurement 84
DANGER! 55 48 35
Months into pregnancy…
Measurement Doctor = Devops engineer “Downward trends okay, as long as it’s above a certain threshold” Months into pregnancy…
Is poop a severity 1 issue? seriously, i wanna know…
Is poop a severity 1 issue?
comme ci, comme ça “It depends” “Is it a blowout, or routine maintenance”
Devops is in demand…
On-call prepares On call you… Only difference: “You’re always on call during dadops.” “For about 950 weeks” —@jeffuberman
Fin “devops is a mindset!” “So is dadops”
