Taking the lessons learned in agile development movement and applying them to IT operations.
A lot has been said about DevOps in the past few years, so there is no need to regurgitate. If you are
unclear what practices you should be implementing, I recommend the following literature.
One of the limitations of CodePipeline currently is that there is not
a good way to use common components across multiple pipelines. You may
want to do this so you do not have to duplicate buildspecs or other files
to be used in different repositories. In this post, I will show a strategy
for reusing artifacts across multiple pipelines.
A tight feedback loop is important when developing code. Terraform is no
different. At times, it would be helpful to have a quick way to test function
calls. In this post, I introduce a tool I have created that does just that.
Terratest is a testing framework for Terraform code written by Gruntwork. In this post, I am going to discuss the usage of Terratest as well as my own personal experiences with testing Terraform code.
I have been on the ground in many different phases of cloud migrations and have witnessed the many perils associated. In this post, I will talk about the different issues I have experienced first hand with customers going through a cloud migration.
CDK, CloudFormation, and Terraform are frameworks for managing cloud infrastructure using code. In this post, we will look at these options, compare and contrast them, and discuss what types of organizations should use take which approach.
Modern, best of breed, continuous integration tools allow developers to
define their delivery pipeline as code and store it in the repository
alongside the application source code. Doing so allows you to manage
your pipeline much like you would your application source code. In this
post, we will go over how to accomplish this using AWS CodeCommit,
AWS Lambda, AWS CodePipeline, and AWS CloudFormation. This approach will
also enable branch-based builds for CodePipeline, a large gap in the
CodePipeline feature set currently.
Easily automate the backup of EBS Snapshots with AWS Data Lifecycle Manager and replicate to another region.
AWS CodePipeline can help you rid yourself of build servers which take resources to manage and are at risk of outages
affecting multiple teams. In this post, we will discuss replacing your existing CI server with a serverless solution.
Override cd command to run garbage collection on your git repositories
For those situations where you just need to push your code somewhere.
