You’ll find an eclectic mix of things to read below, ranging from lessons learned building an edge computing stack to figuring out psychological safety. Dig in.

[blog] What We Learned from Launching Edge Compute from Enterprise Architecture. The EA team at Chick-fil-A got their hands dirty when it came to setting up their first Kubernetes-based edge infrastructure. Read this post for some good lessons learned about incubating ideas and transitioning to a more sustainable approach.

[blog] Google Research, 2022 & beyond: Robotics. I have no idea what the future holds, but if it includes table-tennis-playing robots, I think we’ll be JUST fine.

[blog] Top Women Influencers In Cloud. If you feel like you’re hearing from the same people over and over again, maybe freshen up your list of connections? This list is a good place to start.

[article] What Is Psychological Safety? This term gets thrown around a lot. Read this good Harvard Business Review story for a clear definition of it, why it matters, and how to know if you have it.

[blog] Insights from the CDH Benchmark Survey: Measuring Product and Team Performance. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a survey that focused on product discovery and some of the more macro parts of product management. Read this to learn about what your peers are doing.

[blog] The 25 Percent Rule for Tackling Technical Debt. Are you this systematic in your approach to tech debt and when you work on it? Could you be?

[blog] 50 Essential Linux Commands that You Should Know. I’d be happy if I never had to terminal into a server again, but these are still useful commands on local machines (Mac/Linux) or with containers.
