  • Applying Observability to Ship Faster

    To get fast feedback, ship work often, as soon as it is ready, and use automated systems in Live to test the changes. Monitoring can be used to verify if things are good, and to raise an alarm if not. Shipping fast in this way can result in having fewer tests and can make you more resilient to problems.

  • Amazon Announces General Availability of AWS CodeArtifact

    Recently, Amazon announced the general availability (GA) of AWS CodeArtifact, a fully managed artifact repository service. With this service developers and organizations can securely store and share the software packages used in their development, build, and deployment processes.

  • Rancher Labs Makes Longhorn Generally Available

    Creators of Kubernetes management platform Rancher Labs have made Longhorn, a cloud-native block storage solution, generally available. Longhorn provides a vendor-neutral persistent storage solution that supports the development of stateful applications within Kubernetes.

  • New Report Shows "Overwhelming" Cloud Usage

    The new Cloud Adoption in 2020 report from O'Reilly Media paints a picture of "overwhelming" usage of cloud computing. The survey results also revealed growing adoption of Site Reliability Engineering, high but flattening usage of microservices, and limited interest in serverless computing.

  • Uber Open-Sources Tool to Automatically Clean Up Stale Code

    Uber has open-sourced Piranha, their tool for automated clean up of stale code caused by feature flags that are no longer required. Piranha can be run within a pipeline to continually look for stale code to be cleaned up. Currently Piranha supports Java, Swift, and Objective-C.

  • WebAssembly Extended with Hot Reloading, Remote Debugging and Uniform Hardware Access

    Researchers recently presented WARDuino, an extension to WebAssembly targeting microcontrollers. WARDuino addresses common development pain points by adding live code updates, remote debugging, and access to the microcontroller’s hardware modules. WARDuino’s virtual machine runs five times faster than Espruino (a popular JavaScript interpreter for microcontrollers) on some benchmarks.

  • The Defense Department's Journey with DevSecOps

    Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has released a new case study of the DoD's approach to DevSecOps that looks at how they used Kubernetes clusters and other open-source technologies to speed up the releases. While most of the information was already available from the DoD and in their presentations, the CNCF has summarized the venture in one place.

  • HashiCorp Consul: 1.8 Release and New Kubernetes Tutorials

    Closely following the launch of Consul 1.8, the HashiCorp team has released a set of new hands-on tutorials for deploying and using the HashiCorp Consul service mesh capabilities on Kubernetes. The 1.8 launch focuses on enabling gradual adoption of a service mesh across a range of VM and container environments via the use of mesh gateways and ingress and terminating gateways (released in beta).

  • Microsoft Announces Public Preview of Azure Arc Enabled Kubernetes at Build 2020

    During this year's digital Build event, Microsoft announced the public preview of Azure Arc enabled Kubernetes with support for most of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF)-certified Kubernetes distributions. With this capability, customers can manage and govern their Kubernetes clusters from Azure across their data centers, multi-cloud configurations, and Azure Stack Hub.

  • Istio 1.5: Lin Sun and Neeraj Poddar Discuss istiod, Wasm, and Multi-Cluster Support

    In a recent InfoQ podcast, Lin Sun and Neeraj Poddar discussed the release of Istio 1.5 and explored the future of service mesh space. Topics covered included the motivations for migrating to the “istiod” monolithic control plane, the addition of WebAssembly data plane (Envoy proxy) extension support, and the future of multi-cluster support within Istio.

  • Amazon Releases AWS Amplify iOS and Android into General Availability

    Recently, Amazon announced the general availability (GA) of Amplify iOS and Amplify Android, which are both part of the open-source Amplify Framework. Amplify iOS and Amplify Android include libraries and tools, allowing mobile developers to build scalable and secure cloud-powered applications.

  • Facilitating Threat Modelling Remotely

    ThoughtWorks' Jim Gumbley recently published a guide to Threat Modelling on with a template for facilitating remote and onsite sessions. He makes a case for continuous threat modelling within each iteration, alongside business stake-holders. Derek Handova has also written about removing friction from security through automation and a greater security focus in the SDLC.

  • DigitalOcean’s Journey to a Scalable Networking Model Using GoBGP and Open vSwitch

    DigitalOcean's network engineering team wrote about their journey in switching from a Layer 2 to a Layer 3 based routing model for traffic to virtual machines in their cloud using Open vSwitch (OVS) and other tools.

  • Dekorate: Generating Kubernetes and OpenShift Manifests for Java Projects

    Dekorate, formerly the ap4k project which stood for Annotation Processors for Kubernetes, is designed to make the generation of Kubernetes and OpenShift manifests in Java based projects easier. The project was rebranded since it now supports decorating Kubernetes manifests without the use of annotations, so the name ap4k no longer describes the project accurately.

  • Microsoft Announces a New Pricing Model Option for Azure Cosmos DB and More Capabilities

    During this year's digital Build event, Microsoft announced a new consumption-based pricing model for Azure Cosmos DB called 'serverless' that is ideal for spiky workloads and complements the existing provisioned throughput pricing model.
