Welcome to The DOCOM Monthly, your monthly digest featuring some of the best content published in and around the DigitalOcean Community last month.
I'm Hanif Jetha, a DevOps Technical Writer on the Dev Education team. Today's roundup includes some helpful Redis and kubectl cheat sheets, a guide on using Git to manage writing projects, Hacktoberfest & more!
Without further ado, here are this month's featured posts:
This cheat sheet tutorial series by Mark Drake serves as a handy reference for common Redis operations like connecting to a Redis database, managing different data types, and troubleshooting and debugging problems.
Version control isn’t just for code. You can also use it to manage any sort of writing project. In this tutorial you’ll learn how to use Git to manage a small Markdown document. You’ll store an initial version, commit it, make changes, view the difference between those changes, and review the previous version. When you’re done, you’ll have a workflow you can apply to your own writing projects.
Another cheat-sheet-style tutorial, this time for kubectl, the Kubernetes command-line interface. It covers common operations like configuring Contexts and Namespaces, rolling out Deployments, and fetching logs from running and terminated Pods. It also shows you how to install kubectl and set up shell autocompletion!

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software (OSS) put together by DigitalOcean and DEV. Contribute four pull requests to open source projects on GitHub between October 1st and 31st, and receive a limited-edition Hacktoberfest T-shirt! You can register and learn more at the Official Hacktoberfest site, which also includes a list of IRL Hacktoberfest events you can attend.
Happy hacking, and see you all next month!
