Sometimes it might feel a little bit lonely being the only DevOps person at work. There are still relatively few who has realized its charm and are ready to discuss ideas back and forth – which might make it hard for you as a DevOps enthusiast to continue improving. However, there are many people around the world in the same situation and who love to share knowledge and ideas. These are people and groups who put a lot of effort on the same type of problems and solutions you might face in your everyday work. And luckily for us, most of them run DevOps blogs of some kind.
