The core theme of Cloudbees’ DevOps World 2020 was accelerated resiliency. This idea broke down into three buckets: everything automated, everything connected, and everything resilient. However immediately some talks stood out against automating everything, at least as the first recourse.
Is DevOps synonymous with automation? Or are we focusing too much on automation at the expense of actual value delivery?
The core theme of Cloudbees’ DevOps World 2020 was accelerated resiliency. This idea broke down into three buckets: everything automated, everything connected, and everything resilient. However, immediately some talks stood out against automating everything, at least as the first recourse.
Two interesting talks that focused on DevOps delivering value before automation were given by Steve Pereira, head of Visible Value Stream Consulting, on value stream mapping, and Jayne Groll, CEO of the DevOps Institute, on hybrid product teams. Both talks went beyond continuous delivery and integration pipelines toward understanding where the value flows.
As usual with all cultural and agile perspectives, the value is found with the people.
To set up a serverless CI/CD pipeline in your AWS environments, there are several key services that you need to use. Find out more here.
This article gives direction to getting your CI/CD pipeline up and running on the Kubernetes cluster by the GitLab CICD pipeline.
The ultimate showdown between Travis CI vs Jenkins. Check out this guide to know who wins the race! Travis CI and Jenkins are both popular CI/CD tools and were launched in the same year i.e. 2011. As of July 2020, Jenkins has been the more obvious choice as CI/CD tool with 15.9k stars & 6.3k forks, in comparison to TravisCI which has 8k stars & 756 forks. However, these numbers alone don’t imply which CI/CD tool is more suitable for your upcoming or existing project. Jenkins is an open-source & Travis CI is free for open-source projects.
The year 2020 has arrived, and its arrival brings a lot of innovations and transformations in the Information and Technology (IT) sector to DevOps technologies.
In addition to talks and discussions about how to improve CI/CD, the use of Jenkins to meet DevOps goals was also one of the major conference themes of CloudBees' DEvOps World 2020.
