While a few other types of containers are available, Docker is the de facto standard for containerization. Containerization involves running multiple applications in containers on a Docker Engine that runs on an underlying operating system. The principles of Agile software emphasize simplicity, interactions among individuals, working software, customer collaboration, and responsiveness to change. Docker containers make all of these feasible.
The purpose of CI/CD security goes beyond identifying and remediating vulnerabilities—it also emphasizes keeping pace with other CI/CD processes. A secure CI/CD pipeline allows teams to find and fix issues without disrupting the overall CI/CD flow, achieving security without delaying or rolling back software releases.
Whether to use Cucumber and BDD (Behavior Driven Development) is an old topic and a lot has been shared regarding this already. However I believe many times it’s just the high level technical reasons that make it to the forefront of the argument on how effective it is, and I want to address the topic from a holistic point of view and not just technical.
For software companies and developers, keeping up with the trends means offering state-of-the-art software products and establishing themselves as innovation leaders. Enterprises and businesses will, on the other hand, have to decide between purchasing an existing software solution or cashing in for a customized product tailored to their needs.
Value Stream Mapping is a powerful lean tool that is commonly used in Agile and DevOps implementations as a foundation for continuous improvement and transformation, but its application doesn’t always lead to the expected or desired result. Author Jeff Pierce's article helps you to avoid some of the most common failings companies encounter when they try to implement it.
The article discusses how the new switch statement is simplified and how the new switch expression simplifies. After setting the environment, we’ll discuss what was lacking in the switch statement that makes it less agile. Then, we’ll discuss how Java 14 simplifies switch.
Melissa Benua, director of engineering at mParticle, chats with TechWell community manager Owen Gotimer about the importance of whole team quality, how to get started using the test pyramid, and how developers can start writing testable code.
Faster DevOps processes also create new challenges. It was difficult enough to add security into a traditional waterfall software development lifecycle with monthly or quarterly releases, but now software updates are released several times a day! What can developers do to build and maintain more secure applications? Here are some ways to encourage better security practices throughout the DevOps lifecycle.
The absence of versioned infrastructure as code (IaC) and automated provisioning undermines one of the most important benefits of DevOps: the ability to version, manage, and control the servers and networking required to run software applications in development, testing, and production. Automating infrastructure setup and continuous monitoring helps keep system environments stable and less susceptible to outages.
