Fri, 09/22/2017 - 04:10

Now I talk regularly at local meetups and I went as a speaker to few big conferences. Given that I am no expert in public speaking, my heart beat rises and occasionally words scramble as I am on the stage. But still, I will give you some reasons, why you should speak at conferences or at least attend them.

The Eye-Opening Power of Cultural Difference

Thu, 09/21/2017 - 06:17

Inclusivity is the quality of an open organization that allows and encourages people to join the organization and feel a connection to it. Practices aimed at enhancing inclusivity are typically those that welcome new participants to the organization and create an environment that makes them want to stay.

The Four Layers of Programming Skills

Thu, 09/21/2017 - 06:07

When learning how to code for the first time, there's a common misconception that learning how to code is primarily about learning the syntax of a programming language. That is, learning how the special symbols, keywords, and characters must be written in the right order for the language to run without errors.

Kubernetes Gains Momentum as Big-Name Vendors Flock to Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Thu, 09/21/2017 - 05:27

The Cloud-Native Architecture: One Stack, Many Options

Thu, 09/21/2017 - 05:00

As the chief technology officer of a company specialized in cloud native storage, I have a first hand view of the massive transformation happening right now in enterprise IT. In short, two things are happening in parallel right now that make it radically simpler to build, deploy and run sophisticated applications.

The first is the move to the cloud. This topic has been discussed so much that I won’t try to add anything new. We all know it’s happening, and we all know that its impact is huge.

The Ten Essentials for Good API Documentation

Wed, 09/20/2017 - 06:07

API documentation is the number one reference for anyone implementing your API, and it can profoundly influence the developer experience. Because it describes what services an application programming interface offers and how to use those services, your documentation will inevitably create an impression about your product—for better or for worse.

Local Development Environment for Kubernetes using Minikube

Wed, 09/20/2017 - 06:00

Kubernetes can be an ultimate local development environment particularly if you are wrangling with a large number of microservices. In this post, we will cover how you can create a local development workflow using Minikube and tools such as Make to iterate fast without the wait imposed by your continuous integration pipeline. With this workflow, you can code and test changes immediately.

Architecting the Future with Abstractions and Metadata

Wed, 09/20/2017 - 05:20

Abstractions and metadata are the future of architecture in systems engineering, as they were before in software engineering. In many languages, there are abstractions and metadata; however, systems engineering has never adopted this view. Systems were always thought of as too unique for any standard abstractions. Now that we’ve standardized the lower-level abstractions, we’re ready to build new system-level abstractions.
