Calm.io: a blog series recap!

From September 23, 2015 to May 26, 2016, I took hiatus from my personal blog to explore, explain, and write a number of DevOps articles for my employer on the Calm.io blog. Nutanix acquired Calm.io and I am still part of the Nutanix Calm team, but I’m re-posting these articles on my personal blog since the originals are no longer directly accessible. I am also enhancing them to clarify language, add learnings, and append significant developments as postscripts.

Wonderful accomplishments kicked-off my Infrastructure as Code project. One needs to start with a map of the world before deciding where to focus their efforts. It’s even better when you can optimize and render the new map in real-time!
