Justin’s January update

Hi Everyone,

It’s been a few months since I sent an email because 

1) the subscriber sign up form was overrun with spam 
2) I was mostly taking a break during holidays 
3) I lost the template I created for email and haven’t figure out how to make nice looking email from an iPad (my new writing device)

If you’re on this email and would like to unsubscribe please just reply and let me know. I’m trying a new newsletter service (https://justingarrison.recur.email) to help cut down on spam but I have no idea how unsubscribing works.

The most important thing I wrote recently is about Amazon’s (and other companies) practices for silently forcing people out without severance–“silent sacking”. This includes me and many people I know.

The second big news is I’m taking over the Changelog Ship It podcast! I have a great cohost and a lot of ideas for what I want to cover. If you run production software or are responsible for any part of the software lifecycle after `git commit` I’d love to hear from you.

Please send an email to shipit@changelog.com so we can brainstorm ideas. 


This new podcast means I’ll be retiring my live stream/podcast “Fork it” soon. You can see the latest episodes where I ordered Dominos pizza with Kubernetes here

I also posted a video remembering my friend Kris Nòva. It’s available here

I hope 2024 is a great year for you!

Keep rocking 🤘

Justin Garrison
