Trusting Your Ingredients @DevOpsDays Columbus

Trusting Your Ingredients @DevOpsDays Columbus

As a developer, I always thought that security, like documentation, would be done by someone else. While that might have been true in the past, in today’s world that model no longer works. As a developer you’re responsible for the security of your app. Security in this case should be seen in the broadest sense of the word, ranging from licenses to software packages. A chef creating cheesecake has similar challenges. The ingredients of a cheesecake are similar to the software packages a developer uses. The preparation is similar to the DevOps pipeline, and recipe is similar to the licenses for developers. Messing up any of those means you have a messy kitchen, or a data breach!

GopherCon 2019: Trusting Your Ingredients

Trusting Your Ingredients - What Building Go Apps And Cheesecake Have In Common.

In this lightning session at GopherCon 2019, I got the chance to talk about two things I love. Cheesecake and Golang! As a developer, I’ve written code and built apps, and I realized that building apps and creating a cheesecake have a lot in common. In both cases you need to have the right ingredients, you need to trust your suppliers and have transparency in your production process. In this talk, we’ll look at how you can, and why you should, know what is in the app you deploy.

Atlanta Woman Who Go Meetup: Refactoring to Modules

Atlanta Woman Who Go Meetup: Refactoring to Modules

Go modules are here to stay and it’s about time to start modularizing your code. During the meetup at the Go UserGroup in Atlanta we spoke about:

  • What Go modules are and why you need them
  • The benefits are of using modules
  • The differences between modules and the things we did before that
  • What you need to do to “switch” to modules.

Building Serverless on Kubernetes with OpenFaaS and JFrog Artifactory

In my talk “Duct Tape and String: Continuously Delivering Serverless Microservices” at swampUP 2019, I got to talk about some best practice for the project that got me excited about both serverless and K8s: OpenFaaS! For me that meant I got to combine a lot of the things I care about (Containers, Serverless, and Golang), while talking about the awesome possibilities that using Artifactory brings you.
Refactoring to Go Modules: Why and How

Refactoring to Go Modules: Why and How

Go modules are here to stay and it’s about time to start modularizing your code. At the Go Silicon Valley + Go Bridge meetup I presented a lightning session, which covered:

  • Flying through what Go modules are and why you need them;
  • What the benefits are of using modules;
  • The differences between modules and the things we did before that;
  • What you need to do to “switch” to modules.
GoCenter is Fast – How Does It Do That?

GoCenter is Fast – How Does It Do That?

My last blog post was about the difference in speed downloading Go modules from a version control system or from GoCenter. I got a bunch of questions on Twitter on why that was and this blog post goes into a bit more detail on how the Go client gets modules. TL;DR Using GoCenter speeds up the download of your Go modules because it uses the right protocol when downloading files, saves on the number of HTTP calls and doesn’t have to recreate the module on the client side.
Golang: Build Times Matter - Speed Is Everything

Golang: Build Times Matter - Speed Is Everything

After GoCenter was first released the team at JFrog said it was faster to get modules from there than it was getting modules “the old way”. To be honest, when they said that, I did not believe them. Following the old proverb “seeing is believing”, I set out to test the speed and see whether those claims were accurate. TL;DR: It turns out the team was right!
