What’s the latest DevOps challenge? A tendency toward groupthink

Source – techtarget.com I didn’t see this DevOps challenge coming. My DevOps team seems to often be in agreement, with little discussion most of the time. Could this be due to groupthink? Initially, when we think of DevOps and groupthink, it seems like an oxymoron. After all, DevOps is based on a culture of collaboration; DevOps teams bring together specialists from disciplines with different views on what is most important, and this should form the basis for preventing groupthink. Accordingly, one

The Essential DevOps Process We’re Ignoring: Continuous Response

Source – cloudscaling.com Continuous response—or “CR”—is an overlooked link in the DevOps process chain. The two other major links—continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD)—are well understood, but CR is not.

Continuous deployment using Jenkins

Source – thumbtack.com When I joined at Thumbtack, back in late 2015, we had continuous delivery infrastructure for monolith builds. As more engineers joined, we noticed that a significant amount of time went to deploying the latest build. Moreover, there was a trend of having bigger deploys (so call train deploys) and rollbacks tend to be harder. It was a clear indicator we needed to invest into the deployment pipeline. Continuous delivery At Thumbtack, we use Gerrit for code review.

Why we always start with Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery

Source:- 126kr.com Ten years ago, researchers and cutting-edge developers had to argue that software testing was part of the process of writing software, not a nice to have depending on the budget. Nowadays, it is almost always accepted that shipping an application (or a feature) is an inherent bundle including code, tests and documentation. Open Source software have been written that way for decades and thanks to GitHub, which generalized Open Source good practices, things got a lot better. In
