How to Get Webhooks Into Your System Using Solace PubSub+ Cloud

How to Get Webhooks Into Your System Using Solace PubSub+ Cloud

In some cases you might want to get some data from cloud based systems to an environment that doesn’t expose APIs or ports to the outside world. Using webhooks makes that a little easier, but you still need a system that accepts webhooks and is able to get them across your firewall. That is exactly where Solace PubSub+ Cloud comes in! I’ve built a small webhook forwarder app, that gets data from Solace and sends it onwards without having any of my systems exposed to the Internet.

Trusting Your Ingredients: What Building Software And Cheesecake Have In Common

Trusting Your Ingredients: What Building Software And Cheesecake Have In Common

At the Twistlock Cloud-Native Security Day, a co-located event at KubeCon 2019, I got to talk about what cheesecake and building apps have in common. 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! In this talk we’ll look at:

  • Why do we care about licenses?
  • How does Sec get into the early stages of DevSecOps?
  • What can chefs and devs learn from each other?
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.

DevOps Days Baltimore 2019: DataDrivenDevOps

It was awesome to be at DevOps Days Baltimore and engage with the amazing audience there. Together with Baruch Sadogursky I got on stage to talk about how DevOps is usually viewed from a traditional perspective of a collaboration of Dev, Ops, and QA. Together with the fact that DevOps is usually driven by the change in Culture, People, and Process, the question arises how you know where you stand and where to move? As in almost any field, data and metrics give you the gauges and instruments.

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!
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

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!
