Welcome to 2022! A new year means new opportunities to learn about the tools and services that can make us successful when implementing DevOps. It always feels good to turn the page on what you did in the previous year and move forward to future wins. We may succeed, we may fail, but we are given these lessons along the way that only help make us stronger in what we do.

For some of us, it was back to work after a nice long break. But our community doesn’t seem to stop even with the holidays. To those who took some time off, I do really hope you had a happy and healthy break and feel refreshed. For those who still had to maintain services, monitor applications, and deploy changes to your apps; I thank you for all you do.
