Why you shouldn’t choose between an agile approach and a DevOps approach?

Source – ibm.com You may hear your IT department talking about implementing an agile approach or DevOps development. Both promise better and faster software development through collaboration. How are they different, and which is better for your business? Agile software development principles enable developers to deliver new functionality quickly while responding to changing business requirements. Development teams deliver incremental features frequently, perhaps every couple of weeks. Traditional approaches often take months or even years to deliver new systems. In the meantime,

Continuous Deployment of a Python Flask Application with Docker and Semaphore

Source – semaphoreci.com Introduction In this tutorial, we’ll go through the continuous integration and deployment of a dockerized Python Flask application with Semaphore. We’ll deploy the application to Heroku. Continuous integration and deployment help developers to: Focus on developing features rather than spending time on manual deployment, Be certain that their application will work as expected, Update existing applications or rollback features by versioning applications using Git, and Eliminate the it works on my machine issue by providing a standardized testing

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.

Is Continuous Deployment right for your business?

Source:- 126kr.com It’s easy for technologists to target a challenging architecture or development practice, after all, they love solving technical challenges. So as automation has become a key capability of software development, and organizations have begun to adoptDevOps practices many development teams are striving for the “holy grail” of continuous deployment. Some product owners also love the notion of continuous deployment. Ask for a feature today, build tomorrow and deploy the same day. Seems too good to be true. My

Tutorial: Set up a continuous testing pipeline with Node.js

Source:- assertible.com Continuous integration is large part of modern development workflows. Most of us are familiar with basic CI services that automatically build code as new changes are pushed. But what if you took that a step further and not only built your code, but also deployed and tested it within the same pipeline? This is continuous development. Let’s outline the steps of the pipeline: Continuous integration: Push new code to GitHub, which is then built by CircleCI. Continuous deployment:

Continuous deployment for your tests

Source:- microfocus.com Why would you want to continuously deploy your tests? Release fast and release often. This core principle of modern software development provides numerous advantages, for example earlier customer feedback, faster response cycles, and overall higher customer satisfaction. When trying to increase your release frequency, you will be faced with many testing issues, including the following: Changing tests might lead to unexpected failures (false-positives) or unwanted passes (false-negatives). The probability of introducing breaking changes to your automated test set

Control Your Continuous Integration and Deployment

Source:- 126kr.com If you’re thinking about moving to a DevOps environment you should know that you get to decide how integrated your “continuous integration” is and how continuous your “continuous deployment” is. Much will depend on how you want to manage your risks (and which risks you want to manage). When I talk to my clients about DevOps they often seem to assume that adopting DevOps means that whenever one of their developers checks in some piece of code, their

Continuous Deployment with Google Container Engine and Kubernetes

Source:- semaphoreci.com Introduction This tutorial will show you how to deploy a sample microservices application to Kubernetes and set up continuous deployment using SemaphoreCI. It includes a crash introduction to Kubernetes, Google Container Engine, and building an automated deploy process. Kubernetes, or “k8s” for short, is an orchestration tool for container native applications. Note that Kubernetes is about containers, and not only Docker containers. This tutorial uses Docker because it’s the current industry standard. Kubernetes is a complex distributed system.

Continuous Deployment to Google Cloud Platform with Drone

Source:- nytimes.com Over the course of the last year, the software development teams at The New York Times have been evaluating Google Cloud Platform for use in some of our future projects. To do this, we’ve surveyed a wide variety of software management techniques and tools, and we’ve explored how we might standardize building, testing and deploying our systems on GCP. Our newly formed Delivery and Site Reliability Engineering team came up with two methods of deployment with Google Container
