Ride to Recharge!

On a ride, there are many roads to cross, but only one companion along the way, a motorcycle! | @iSwamiK

A motorcycle ride isn’t just about looking at the scenery; you become a part of it as well. It’s like being immersed in the beauty instead of seeing it through a car window.

Take a ride, glide, and watch as your mind starts to relax as soon as you start listening to your motorcycle’s throttle! You might think it’s crazy, but once you ride the highway, you’ll see what I mean!

Until next time, drive safely and have a great weekend!

DevOps Quiz

Quiz

Recovery time after a production failure is referred to as

  • Deployment Frequency
  • Lead Time
  • Change Failure Rate
  • Time to Restore Service

Answer

Time to Restore Service | @iSwamiK
Time to Restore Service | Swami K

‘Time to Restore Service’

Time to recovery or time to restore service measures how long it takes a DevOps team to restore service following an incident, such as an unplanned outage or service impairment.

The recovery time metric is critical for ensuring quick recovery from any incidents. In comparison, elite performers can recover services in an hour or less, while low performers take weeks to months. To achieve quick MTTR metrics, elite teams deploy in small batches to reduce risk and have good monitoring tools to prevent failure.

My Two Cents on DevOps Transformation

Repetition creates habits, and habits are what enable mastery. | Kata | @iSwamiK
Repetition creates habits, and habits are what enable mastery. | Kata | @iSwamiK

“Repetition creates habits, and habits are what enable mastery.”

According to Sensei Rother, who brought the Kata to our world says, “repetition creates habits, and habits are what enable mastery.”

So whether you’re talking about sports training, learning a musical instrument, or training in the Special Forces, nothing is more to mastery than practice and drills. Thanks to Sensi Rother, who introduced us to this concept called Kata.

Studies have shown that practicing five minutes daily is better than practicing once a week for three hours. And if you want to create a genuine culture of improvement, you must make those habits.”

It’s Lead Time!

One vital DevOps metric to track is the lead time for changes. Not to be mistaken with cycle time, lead time tracks the changes in the period between when a code is committed to the trunk branch and in a deployable condition.
