Every year, for the past four years, JFrog has hosted the DevOps community at the annual user conference. It is the premier event where you go to learn all about DevOps best practices from world-renowned companies. I’m incredibly excited about it, so let’s look at the agenda and the awesome speakers that are joining us this year!
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.
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!
Go is the language of choice for a lot of (cloud-native) projects because it creates very streamlined binaries. We used to “vendor” in all dependencies, but with Go Modules we now have real dependency management. We’ll show you a few pipelines from code to production and see if Modules are that much better to make builds lightning quick and hassle-free.
Ever since I discovered Kubernetes, I’ve been looking at OpenFaaS to build and deploy serverless functions on top of it. So as I started building more and more functions to help the Developer Relations team at JFrog, I wanted to share how I use JFrog Artifactory and OpenFaaS together!
Today, Kubernetes is the defacto standard if you want to run container workloads in a production environment. As we set out to build our next generation of products, and run them smoothly in the cloud, we needed to move to Kubernetes too! In the process of building tools like KubeXray and GoCenter we learned a whole bunch. At the Amsterdam Kubernetes/Cloud-Native Meetup I presented a talk in which we walked through our lessons learned and how we’re running it at scale.
It was awesome to be at DevOps Days Charlotte 2019 and speak about how you hear everything in DevOps is unicorns and rainbows, and you feel like you’re the last person on earth with “suboptimal” processes, tools and environment. Together with Baruch Sadogursky I got the chance to change the image bit. While most DevOps talks are like Instagram (everything is awesome and perfect), they hаve nothing to do with the real life.
In many talks, you hear how everything is DevOps unicorns and rainbows, and you feel like you’re the last person on earth with “suboptimal” processes, tools and environment. But no despair, DevOps talks are like Instagram, hаve nothing to do with real life. In this talk, we’ll reveal the truth.
In this webinar, we’ll look at Go modules and why it is such an improvement over vendoring, we’ll show you why dependency management is so important, and we’ll build a CI/CD pipeline for your Go projects using GoCenter!
This is the fourth and final post in the blog series on using GitHub Actions with the JFrog CLI and JFrog Artifactory. In this post we’ll look at building an app and uploading it, together with the BuildInfo, to Artifactory. If you have any thoughts on what the next series of posts should be, let me know here or on Twitter!
