  • 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.

  • Cloud Development Kit Can Now Generate Terraform Configurations Using TypeScript and Python

    AWS, HashiCorp, and Terrastack collaborated to release a preview of the CDK for Terraform, or cdktf. Developers can use programming languages like Python or Typescript to manage infrastructure as code. cdktf generates a Terraform configuration in JSON. Also, cdktf supports any existing modules and providers from the Terraform registry to deploy resources to AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud.

  • OverOps Releases Second Annual DevOps Survey

  • Why Coinbase Is Not Using Kubernetes to Run Their Container Workloads

    Coinbase recently wrote about why Kubernetes is not part of their technology stack. Coinbase uses containers, but they run them in VMs. For deployments, they use Odin, its open-source solution for deploying their services in VMs as auto-scaling groups. Adopting Kubernetes adds unnecessary complexity to their current deployment pipeline, and it is not the right tool for them at the moment.

  • GitLab Annual DevOps Survey Shows Emerging Trends and Changing Roles

    Completed by over 3500 developers from 21 countries, GitLab's DevOps survey encompasses three major areas, development and release, security, and testing. The survey hints at faster release cycles and improved quality, with the more recent DevSecOps area requiring more organizational fine-tuning. InfoQ has taken the chance to speak with GitLab's senior developer evangelist, Brendan O'Leary.

  • 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.

  • CircleCI Releases API Version 2 with Improved Insights Endpoints
