  • How Amazon Teams Do Continuous Delivery

    An AWS engineer recently wrote about how Amazon deployment pipelines look and what practices they follow to deploy continuously to production. A pipeline validates changes in multiple environments running unit and integration tests, and use stages to stagger deployments to production. Teams don't actively examine deployments as the pipeline monitors key metrics and can rollback if needed.

  • Shifting-Left Testing with Mabl DevTestOps Platform

    Corresponding to the ideas of "test early, test often" and "test as early as possible" in the development lifecycle, shift-left testing is a well-known approach. Recently, the combination of shift-left testing and CI/CD is fueling a new approach to DevOps dubbed DevTestOps. InfoQ has spoken with Dan Belcher, co-founder at DevTestOps platform maker mabl.

  • Go as a Scripting Language

    Go's growing adoption as a programming language that can be used to create high-performance networked and concurrent systems has been fueling developer interest in its use as a scripting language. While Go is not currently ready out of the box to be used as a replacement for bash or python, this can be done with a little effort.

  • Reimagining CI/CD Pipelines as Composable Blocks with Bryan Liles

    Bryan Liles, senior staff engineer at VMWare, talked at the DeliveryConf about ideas of patterns and recommendations when building CI/CD pipelines. Liles recommends thinking about CI/CD as patterns instead of implementations, like merely using Jenkins or Spinnaker. It should be possible to build a platform with composable blocks with replaceable components and agnostic to a technology stack.

  • NGINX Releases Controller 3.0 with Major Redesign Providing Consolidated Application View

    NGINX announced the release of NGINX Controller 3.0, their control-plane solution to manage the NGINX data plane.

  • How to Embrace “You Build It, You Run It” with Paul Hammant at QCon London

    Paul Hammant talked at QCon London about having developers responsible for the first line of support in production, as the saying goes, “if you build it, you run it.” Hammant recommends following this practice only if there are proper support levels and escalation policies defined. As a result, companies could reduce the chances of burnout or staff quitting.

  • Improving Continuous Integration at Dropbox Using Bazel

    Benjamin Peterson recently shared how Dropbox leverages Bazel to improve their build and deploy experience. Using Bazel, Dropbox was able to scale their continuous integration and deployment pipelines to ensure quick feedback on commits. They achieved this by running only the affected tests within a grouping of commits and selectively pre-declaring which tests are gating to deployments.
