Cloud native with Saiyam - The rise of mastodon

Saiyam Pathak

A note first before we dive into the actual topic: There have been massive layoffs globally, which is heartbreaking. Everyone should share job opportunities and respect other people’s time and emotions.
The past couple of weeks have been quite crazy; from blue checks to $8, it’s been chaos in the social media world. IMO this has shown that nothing is permanent and anything can happen at a point in time. In today’s world, you cannot be dependent on anything too much; another example from India was TikTok, people made it a career (nothing wrong with it ), but when it shut down, it became a nightmare. You should always be open to trying out new platforms and if you are in content creation stuff, crossposting to multiple platforms also makes sense.
With these recent events, there has been a rise in the adoption of a new decentralised microblogging platform called Mastodon. So it is a platform with many servers you can join; after becoming part of one server, you can also make friends on other servers. You can also host your mastodon instance and create a community, which is what I did; I created a cloud native mastodon server powered by Civo, which is almost a 1k community already.
So join the awesome community and be part of that bubble.
My work:
My upcoming Conferences/Talks
  • Open source summit, Japan with my wife - the cloud native power couple will be on the stage maybe with baby :D
  • KubeDay, Japan
  • DevOpsDays India - I will be there as an organizer and it will be super fun so make sure to get your tickets today.
  • Civo Navigate - I am trying hard to make this the best technology conference so you need to be there to experience it.
Now let’s get to the fantastic content by the community.

One common issue I see, is people keep asking for projects in DevOps and keep searching.
First, you need to stop your search at some point and actually follow something - a course, blog, video, or documentation and finish it. You need to FINISH it!
