Beside that automated QA will be one of the major drivers in your business case.
Part 4/4 of the article series “Automated Application Packaging and Distribution with OpenShift – A guide through the jungle of modern development practices with Kubernetes”. This part explains GitOps and discusses an example with ArgoCD and Tekton.
Part 3 of the article series on automated application packaging and distribution. This time about integrating into Kubernetes Native Pipelines with OpenShift Pipelines (Tekton)
If the COVID-19 epidemic taught us one lesson, then it is how dependent we are on data exchange over the internet. Just think back to yourself, how did you pass by 2020/2021? How did you exchange data with service providers or your employer? How did you entertain yourself while being under lock down or how […]
Introduction In this article series we are going to build together a sample cloud-native IoT architecture, called Bobbycar, based on the Red Hat OpenShift Container platform and a lot of other relevant technologies. The first part of the series should provide you with the necessary background on IoT-, Edge- and Cloud Computing and also briefly […]
How to get rid of “It works on my machine!” with CodeReady Workspaces
Photo by Rene Böhmer on Unsplash By using Quarkus you can write lightweight and lightning-fast Java applications that scale on OpenShift/Kubernetes in a matter of milliseconds. But to achieve linear scalability and resilience of your application you should strive to create stateless applications. If you scale up multiple application instances that all connect to the […]
