Once, people used the word genius only when describing someone who really was a genius. Today every parent uses this word to describe their, likely cognitively regular child. I find the same trend holds true for DevOps. And yet, that doesn't stop everyone from saying the word DevOps, a lot (and more often than not, in a completely wrong context).
DevOps requires new practices and smart players. Panelists at the #C9D9 hangout shared their real world DevOps stories, and want to spark a continuous discussion.
This article represents different aspects of process discovery phase which is key to any business process implementation project. The analogy to process discovery phase in regular software project is “requirements gathering phase”.
As co-founder of Logentries I am often asked – “Why Logs?” And I have to admit, upon first impression, ‘log management and analytics’ does not seem like the sexiest space.
You want to check an API to ensure that it’s secure, but just how do you think like a bad guy intent on breaking your API and potentially into your site? Performing the right sorts of API security testing is essential.
With the first release of JavaFX 2, Oracle introduced the javafxpackager tool, which has now been renamed to javapackager (Java 8 u20). This enables developers to create native executables for any common platform, even mac app store packages.
Troubleshooting an app based on one error is hard. How do you add context to the exception?
This issue comes when your application uses a bigger key size in encryption than the default key size provided by the Java runtime.
Out of the box, Go provides just enough package management to make for a fast and efficient compiler. While it's not opinionated enough to drive anyone away, Go package management doesn't have the features to meet the needs of many developers.
Our modern workplaces are often a hive of activity, whether it’s the hubbub of conversation across our open plan offices or the multitude of digital disruptions busting to interrupt our flow of thought.
It may mean the difference between a 15 minute meeting where everyone nods their heads, and a day long battle of egos.
Continuous integration is the practice of merging all developers’ working copies with a shared mainline and making a build several times a day. CI is used to prevent integration problems, to improve software quality, and to reduce the time taken to deliver. Continuous Integration is derived from the early practice of XP (Extreme Programming) where a team integrates the code change more often to avoid descending into 'integration hell'.
We’re working hard in the Logentries towers to integrate our continuous delivery tools, so we can identify and track issues as easily as possible. This saves us time that we can spend on important things like adding new features (or playing pool!).
I was introduced to Niko-niko calendars by Max Webster at Niko Niko. Basically, they are a way of tracking a team’s mood over time. At the end of the day, team members put in a smile/frown/whatever face indicating their mood.
I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about securing their network setup, know your enemy and you'll be a head of the crowd.
A Continuous Delivery pipeline is an automated representation of the value stream of an organisation, and rules are often codified in a pipeline to reflect the real-world journey of a product increment.
The most recent Shellshock, a vulnerability in the popular shell bash, got me to evaluate again the unique setup on Ubuntu/Debian. In this setup, script execution is not handled by bash, this job is carred out by dash, the Debian Almquist Shell.
On several occasions I have worked with systems that processed lots of work items with a fairly complicated algorithm. When doing a larger rewrite of such an algorithm you want to regression test your algorithm.
Over the past week, I spent some time looking at Java based template engines. Typically I need templating support for two areas.
Recently, I got a task where licensing was required to be added. I have done such tasks using ant in the past but this time I was supposed to use maven.
The Code Coverage metric that most quality-conscious software engineers cherish doesn’t guarantee anything.
There are a lot of ALM tools out there - so many that it can become a problem to keep it all straight, and it can be difficult to track information between platforms. That's the problem that the newest version of Collabnet's Teamforge, 7.2, aims to address: the interconnection of disparate tools.
The word "legacy" has a lot of connotations. Mostly bad ones. We seem to forget that our beautiful code gets to “legacy“ status three days after writing it
I have taken the time to upgrade my simple Java rule engine so that it supports Java 8 lambdas and streams and it is now published in Maven Central.
This article shows how to mock your JMS infrastructure using MockRunner and test it using Spring.
