Continuous Verification In A Serverless World @ Open Source Community Day

Continuous Verification In A Serverless World @ Open Source Community Day

At VMware we define Continuous Verification as:

“A process of querying external systems and using information from the response to make decisions to improve the development and deployment process.”

At #OSSDay, I got a chance to not only talk about what that means for serverless apps and how you can build it into your existing pipelines using tools like GitLab, CloudHealth, Wavefront and Gotling.

How To Build Infrastructure as Code With Pulumi And Golang - Part 2

How To Build Infrastructure as Code With Pulumi And Golang - Part 2

Going into the series on creating Infrastructure as Code on AWS using Pulumi, I knew the team there was actively working on improving and expanding the Go support in Pulumi. What I didn’t realize is that it would be so quick and would be such a great improvement to the underlying code I needed to write. In this post, I’ll go over some of the code from my previous blog posts and update them to match the new SDK.

Trusting your ingredients - What's in your function anyway?

Trusting your ingredients - What's in your function anyway?

As a developer, I’ve built apps and wrote code. As a cheesecake connoisseur, I’ve tried many different kinds of cheesecake. After I got to talk to some of the bakers, I realized that building apps and baking cheesecake have a lot in common. It all starts with knowing and trusting your ingredients. According to Tidelift, over 90 percent of applications contain some open source packages. Developers choose open source because they believe it’s better, more flexible, and more extendible.

How To Create a VPC In AWS Using Pulumi And Golang

The source code you write as a developer is important, but it is only one part of the entire application that goes into production. To deploy an app, you’ll need resources like API gateways, S3 buckets, or VPCs as well. Configuring those resources is a task you don’t want to do manually. How about building your infrastructure as code using the same language you’ve built your app in. That is what Pulumi allows you to do!
