Hope everyone had a good weekend! In case you missed them, here's a curated collection of the best and most informative posts from this week's edition of The DevOps Zone. This week: looking at the DevOps hype, using Bazel for CI, the benefits of optimizing code, and bug testing.

Is DevOps the New Black? - Mirco Hering

I spent a lot of time thinking of how to riff on the "Orange is the New Black" theme song, but nothing's coming! Regardless, MVB Mirco Hering reflects on his consulting experience on how everyone is claiming they do DevOps, but simple questions reveal the real truth.

MVB Kristina Chodorow is focused on Bazel, an open source build tool from Google, and how using it with Jenkins is an improvement over traditional CI pipelines. Her article has a ton of useful diagrams, screenshots, and reports to show you exactly how it works.
