This week we start off with Werner Vogel's article on modern software development at AWS, and ends with a tool for checking git stats directly in terminal. Enjoy!
Werner Vogels, Amazon's legendary CTO, shares what modern development looks like at AWS. Spoiler alert: microservices and CI/CD. Also mentioned: serverless, and standardization of best practices 😉
"Given this impressive adoption of containers (and associated technology), it's even more ironic (and somewhat sad) that Docker, the company that did more than anyone else to kick-start the container revolution, is a comparative pauper when it comes to profiting from containers."
"Development wants faster feature delivery, whereas operations wants stability and availability. These two goals contradict each other. With serverless bypassing ops altogether, it unintentionally reinforces the “ops as a barrier” trope."
What happens when a developer, desperate for open source funding, decided to show an advertisement message in the terminal each time his package gets installed? 😱
Graham King, a professional software engineer and enthusiastic pro-am systems administrator, went to PDX DevOpsDays and reports his impressions on the various topics discussed, including "Everyone hates YAML".
We love git stats obviously (Datree runs in 6K+ repos, checks 100K+ commits and counting 🚀). But terminal-based stats are just fun.
