Choosing a #Serverless Architecture | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #AI #Docker

What to Look for When Choosing a Serverless Architecture By Sunil Mavadia Information Technology has advanced in different areas at different speeds. This has always been true, as people found workable solutions to the problems that faced them today, most often before there was a market for those solutions. While things like virtualization and eventually cloud computing grew slowly, programming languages sat at the same point for around a decade before the current round of new languages and approaches—Python, Ruby, Node, Swift—came about.

The integration between the two solutions is handled by a module provided by XebiaLab... (more)

Making Agile Real: The Zen of Continuous Delivery By @XebiaLabs | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Making Agile Real: The Zen of Continuous Delivery By Andrew Phillips Much of what is written about Continuous Delivery at present seems to revolve around technical challenges and technical choices: “Which is better: Puppet, Chef or Salt?”, “Should I use Jenkins, Go or XL Release?”, “How do I build a CD pipeline with containers?” etc. etc. If we’re looking at CD properly, though, this is the sideshow – an implementation detail at best. The real CD story is much bigger. Don’t get me wrong: as a technical kind of person, I can get very enthusiastic about the tech: there are a lot o... (more)
