How do you get your finance team to buy into your IT transformation when money in the cloud feels like money down the drain? @ianmiell looks at money flows, cultural gaps and how your finance team could change everything in #WTFisCloudNative.
I've got into trouble recently because when British people use the words 'interesting' or 'fascinating' it can be seen as sarcastic by other nations.

1982: I wrote Alien Attack, my first game, on an Atari 400, in BASIC. It had a custom character set for the alien (one at a time) and your spaceship. I advertised it in the Popular Computing Weekly classifieds for £5, for a week. Not much of a campaign. I sold zero copies.
There are many ways to ask #WTFisCloudNative? Like ‘Am I (still) doing it right?’ At @LDN_Blueprint, our @ianmiell is discussing DevOps and whether we’re on the right track or missing the boat completely. Register today and come learn some 🤯 stuff about Cloud Native.
@ianmiell’s written a book on it. We’ve got 2-day workshops on it. We help set up CI/CD pipelines with GitOps workflows. And now, in partnership with @kcduk_io, @adrianmouat is giving a FREE 2-hour taster GitOps workshop TOMORROW.
Should I go on?

For too many times in my career, I've had to fight Apache config to figure out WHY IT WON'T PERMIT ME TO READ FILES UNDER THAT /var/www FOLDER. But not often enough for me to internalise the answers.
Is it just me?
