Best of DevOps 2023

Download MP3
Bret and Nirmal are joined by Melissa McKay, Developer Advocate at JFrog and Docker Captain, to discuss the best and worst of 2023.

We recorded this episode in December of 2023 where we talked through our favorite tools. Whether a DevOps oriented tool or not, it just might be the things we like to use on containers and in Cloud Native DevOps. This is a fun episode of three friends talking about what they love. And I sometimes I think these are the best shows because we didn't plan them out. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did recording it. 

The live recording of the complete show from December 14, 2023 is on YouTube (Ep. #245)
