This is a story about how I lost $10,000,000 by doing something stupid.

Ten. Million. Dollars.

Literally up in smoke. Money bonfire.

That’s enough to retire with $250,000+ in annual income.

Here’s what happened…

GitHub now automatically creates a table of contents for your http://README.md files from your headers.

After much consideration, we made this a feature of the viewer, not a concern of the editor: no special markdown to insert.

Let us know what you think!

Does anyone know of a good Configuration Server solution that has GitOps in mind? [Nacos> and <https://ctripcorp.github.io/apollo/#/ Apollo](https://nacos.io/en-us/index.html) are the most popular Configuration Servers, however Apollo doesn’t have any English docs. Nacos doesn’t have any “sync from a git repository” feature.

Other than that, it seems like there aren’t any solutions out there. There is CloudBees Rollout, but it’s proprietary and maybe more focused on feature flags, not configuration.

If this was for a purely k8s solution, I’d just use ArgoCD or Weave Flux and keep all the helm overrides in git.

Otherwise there seem to be some pretty well established OSS feature flag projects out there

Thanks! Ended up making a homegrown gitops-y solution with Mozilla SOPS and AWS Parameter Store. Consul is a no go because it’s overkill for the client.

While I wouldn’t use it, I can appreciate what it does. Approaches like this tend to confuse developers because it’s another layer of abstraction.

Been lifting weights for a while and looking to upgrade from a cheap squat rack (half rack?) to something like a power rack that will allow me and my wife to use resistance bands. Any suggestions? Anything made in the US that isn’t out of stock right now?
