JAX DevOps day one: the mechanical sympathy between Docker and Java, tips that might come in handy when dealing with containers and reasons why you should [or shouldn’t] containerize an existing (monolithic) app.
Defining DevOps is no easy task and perhaps we shouldn’t label it anyway but one thing we really need to do is determine what goes into a first-aid DevOps toolkit. For that, we need help from four of the world’s biggest DevOps influencers.
In this article, David Mytton, founder and CEO of Server Density, explains why we need a return to empathetic operations.
Women are underrepresented in the tech sector —myth or reality? In addition to the Women in Tech survey, we also launched a diversity series aimed at bringing the most inspirational and powerful women in the tech scene to your attention. Today, we’d like you to meet Helen Beal, Head of DevOps at Ranger4 and JAX DevOps speaker.
Some people call DevOps a cultural movement, others think it is a magic bullet but it is actually a catalyst for collaboration between the roles of technology developers and IT operations. We invited four of the world’s biggest DevOps influencers to weigh in on the facets of DevOps and identify the most important trends.
We’re gearing up for JAX DevOps by talking to Kris Buytaert, who explains what he means by “software has only value when it is running in production”.
“Ship code at the push of a button!” In preparation for his talk at JAX DevOps, speaker Jussi Nummelin shows us how to keep up with contemporary software development: move fast, make rapid changes, and adapt.
It’s a situation many of us are familiar with: a large legacy, monolithic application, limited or no tests, slow & manual release process, low velocity, no confidence… A lot of refactoring is required but management keeps pushing for new features. Now what? We talked to Michiel Rook, a Java/PHP/Scala contractor and consultant about the challenges that walk hand in hand with continuous deployment.
Containers are among the most discussed topics in the world of enterprise software today, especially when Docker comes into play. We invited Jussi Nummelin, core engineer building container orchestration at Kontena, Inc. and speaker at JAX DevOps, to talk about the benefits of containers and his favorite tools and to weigh in on containers’ “silver bullet” label.
Containers revolutionize the way modern software is being developed and operated. We talked to Johannes Unterstein, Distributed Applications Engineer at Mesosphere and JAX DevOps speaker about container tools and technologies and containers’ usefulness in a DevOps context.
Handing off an artifact, providing CI, moving towards continuous delivery, challenging teams to “go faster with higher quality” can all fall under DevOps. We invited Michael Kren, DevOps manager at Jamf, to talk about the business benefits of DevOps and the tools they used to implement DevOps.
DevOps is not only about company culture; the technical skills are more important than ever. JAXenter editor Dominik Mohilo talked to Gianluca Arbezzano, Software Engineer at CurrencyFair at DevOpsCon in Munich about the need for technical skills in a DevOps context and the benefits of InfluxDB as opposed to Prometheus.
