All things that evolve or are organic in nature function in cycles. In technology we most often see this in the software development life cycle (SDLC). In this cycle we see a process of continually planning, developing, testing, and deploying software in order to deliver new features and new capabilities to consumers.
At NetApp SolidFire we’re no stranger to the SDLC. It’s at the core of how we develop Element OS. At present we would like to introduce to you our newest SDLC process: The Sock Development Life Cycle. That’s right. We’re on version 4.0 of the now famous SolidFire socks. This version pays homage to the life cycle that is consuming the world and changing how organizations build, test, and deploy infrastructure in their environments.
On this year’s sock you’ll be introduced to all things software development:
We’ve decorated the sock with real code from our developers and ensured a nice dark console base color. On the sole you’ll find the icons for our most popular development integrations. You can find those as stickers at an event near you, or order your own at our new sticker store for thePub.
These socks have been thoroughly tested, as you can see below, by our very own Mike Turner.
While our core deployment mechanism for SolidFire socks 4.0 is primarily at events, we’re experimenting with new deployment methodologies, as you’ll see here.
If you find yourself a pair of socks this year, please share your story with us on Twitter. Just mention @SolidFire, and use the hashtag #codeon
Find us at an event and make sure to get your pair of SolidFire Socks 4.0. Wear them to run.
Wear them to bike. Wear them to create amazing software. Wear them to share your knowledge on our developer community, thePub, at NetApp.io.
No matter what your target activity, we want you go out there and #CodeOn!
