This is Exciting: A New Destination for All Things DevOps

I am very excited to highlight a new Forem: The Ops Community. It is a new space dedicated to DevOps, SecOps, IT Managers, SREs, and other cloud-native professionals.

If you work in DevOps, you know that it is a fast-moving field where keeping up with the pulse is critical β€” but that can be difficult and overwhelming. Whether good information gets lost in a sea of JavaScript tutorials or is confined to chat spaces and Twitter threads, separating signal from noise is critical for your career and needs to be just a bit easier.

We invited some folks yesterday to join, and the space is already thriving.

The Ops Community βš™οΈ

The Ops Community is a place for cloud engineers of all experience levels to share tips & tricks, tutorials, and career insights.


If you are a full-on DevOps professional, or simply trend in that direction of the IT spectrum, this is going to be a very useful resource and community for you. Please take a moment to join right now and post in the Welcome Thread.

Thank you to Blink for stewarding this community!

Happy Opsing! πŸŽ‰

One last thing. You’ll notice "Sign up with Forem" as an option on these Forems. This is a service we now offer to most seamlessly navigate the ecosystem and manage your identity. We want you to be able to bring your full self without having to bring your full data, so making this distributed ecosystem as straightforward as possible in the long run is really important. Create a Forem account and connect it with your DEV account via your settings. πŸ™‚

Joined as founding author :)
I have a question though: how to manage between the two communities? Should we cross post, reference, or really keep articles separated? Articles often target both audiences... (would have been great to be able to have only one profile shared between the two)

I tried the link above again today. Now I'm asked to accept terms. After checking both terms. There no ability to submit. Instead the bottom says "Log in with Forem App" but does nothing. If I open with Forem app I get in.
