CFP: 5 agile practices and why they are useful to SRE teams

April 21, 2020 2:28 pm Veröffentlicht von Kommentare deaktiviert für CFP: 5 agile practices and why they are useful to SRE teams

As SRE (Site Reliability Engineering) teams contain a fair portion of software development work, and get filled up by software developers, it is a natural move to also adapt agile software development practices. The right agile model depends heavily on the percentage of development work vs. operations, which may be influenced by the team size. For example, in a small team where a high percentage of people is on call during the day, it might not make too much sense to plan... Artikel ansehen


Guest article: Build a Kubernetes Operator in 10 minutes with Operator SDK

April 20, 2020 1:53 pm Veröffentlicht von Kommentare deaktiviert für Guest article: Build a Kubernetes Operator in 10 minutes with Operator SDK

It’s been a while since I last submitted an article to opensource.com. This time it is about quickly kick-starting a Kubernetes Operator with Operator SDK. Click here to get to the article. When you start working on a new software project, often a bunch of code is already existing. That’s by no means different when joining development of a Kubernetes Operator. In the case of Operator SDK a good part of the code is additionally generated, so you also want... Artikel ansehen


CFP: Things I love about SRE that I loathe about DevOps

Januar 28, 2020 8:32 pm Veröffentlicht von Kommentare deaktiviert für CFP: Things I love about SRE that I loathe about DevOps

DevOps & SRE – what is it? Let’s define what those terms mean. DevOps means, the same team building the software is responsible for running it. This can be easiest imagined for software that is operated by the vendor themselves, i.e. cloud services. The idea is, no one knows the software better than the developers, so no one could better operate and fix in-flight issues than them. On the other hand, developers have high interest in building software that is... Artikel ansehen


Ruby best practice: Implementing operator == and ensuring it doesn’t break

März 8, 2019 12:42 pm Veröffentlicht von Kommentare deaktiviert für Ruby best practice: Implementing operator == and ensuring it doesn’t break

In ruby, comparing hashes, strings and objects is a complicated topic. Should you use equal?, eql? or ==? There is plenty of help on this topic, but in this post, we will focus on the interesting behavior of the == operator and how you can make it behave as you need it for your use case. When comparing Hashes in Ruby, the == operator compares the content of a hash recursively. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9... Artikel ansehen


Raspberry Pi powered Wifi Pictureframe

März 6, 2019 7:09 am Veröffentlicht von Kommentare deaktiviert für Raspberry Pi powered Wifi Pictureframe

Some days ago I wrote an post about building a picture frame using a Raspberry Pi. The article has been published on opensource.com. The software to show the slideshow has been written by myself and published on github as I wasn’t happy with all the existing solutions. As they either involve using a GL rendered xscreensaver which was terribly slow on the Raspberry Pi or installing Kodi which I think is kind of overkill, just to get a slide show.Also I wanted the...

Ansible: Passing arrays to BASH scripts

Januar 7, 2019 7:56 am Veröffentlicht von Kommentare deaktiviert für Ansible: Passing arrays to BASH scripts

When using Ansible, it may become handy sooner or later to invoke a BASH script in one of you playbooks. Invoking a BASH script in Ansible can be done using a simple shell task: 1 2 3 4 5 6 --- - hosts: 127.0.0.1 connection: local tasks: - name: ensure stuff is done shell: ./do_stuff.sh This task will execute the bash script do_stuff.sh. Sometimes, it is also necessary to configure the behaviour of the BASH script you are executing. The simplest way... Artikel ansehen

Define interfaces in a duck typed language like ruby

Oktober 5, 2018 6:55 am Veröffentlicht von Kommentare deaktiviert für Define interfaces in a duck typed language like ruby

In Java, it is very intuitive how interfaces are defined and used. You just create an interface in a similar way you would create a class and derive the classes, implementing the interface. interface Drivable { public void drive(int meters); public void stop();}class Car implements Drivable { public void drive(int meters) { //start the engine //go for it } public void stop() { //stop the engine }}class Bagger implements Drivable { public void drive(int meters) { //start engine //start left...

Guest Series at opensource.com After my recent first guest article on https://opensource.com the first part of a series about creating a Raspberry Pi based NAS has just been published. You can read it here. There has been a surprising amount of twitter reactions to the article and it seems it also collected more than a thousand visits on the first day.
