Alert Your Stardestroyers

It’s that time in May when people start talking about that movie from the 80s. The one with James Earl Jones as the villain. Came out in May 1982.

That’s right. Once again we must ask, “Conan, what is best in DevOps?”

“To crush CI/CDs,

to see supply chains before you,

and to hear the attestation of their SBOM.”

Since this episode aired on May 3rd, it was a chance to acknowledge Star Wars Day, aka May 4th – as in, may the fourth (force) be with you.

The Empire Strikes Back came out in 1980. Conan didn’t appear until two years later. But, wonderfully, James Earl Jones plays the villain in both. We only hear him in Empire (David Prowse wore Vader’s suit), but we see him – with long hair no less – as the evil Thulsa Doom in Conan.

I first riffed on this quote in episode 137.
