“Anything you do to make your development life easier can make a hacker’s life easier too”

In the emerging world of DevOps and the cloud, most developers are trying to learn new technologies and methodologies. The focus tends to be on adding capabilities such as resiliency and scaling to an application. Still, one critical item consistently overlooked is security. We talked to JAX London speaker Steve Poole about what can be done to keep your system secure and what happens when you leave the door open.

Microservices checklist — Part 2

“The size of a microservice is the size of the team that is building it”

No software architect can resist the temptation to talk about their experience with microservices. We launched an interview series with experts who talked about the benefits and challenges of microservices, when people should not use them and what impact they have on an organization. Our second interviewee is Aviran Mordo, the head of engineering at Wix.

Interview with DevOps evangelist Anton Weiss

“The codebase is a minefield —there will be casualties”

Continuous Delivery is the antidote for stressful, scary and fragile releases. A proper CD pipeline gives us the certainty that most of the mines got detected and disarmed and even if anything was overlooked, we have a way to quickly revert the damage. We invited Anton Weiss, Principal Consultant and CEO at Otomato and DevOps evangelist, to talk about the pitfalls of not putting continuous delivery into practice and the advantages of having a proper CD pipeline.
