Seamless Implementation of Safety Practices in the DevOps Pipeline | HackerNoon

Want to implement Safety Practices in your DevOps pipeline seamlessly? I discuss industrial factors, goals of DevSecOps, maturity in code design, ASOC, and more

“Today, DevSecOps is no longer some newfangled trend you can safely do without. In today's conditions, process practices are mandatory for everyone who has something to do with software development. It is only important to decide how much to implement them. No tool is a bullet, so when implementing it, it is important to think about people and the existing processes of the company, as well as about the possibilities of their interaction with each other.”

Congratulations @goal23, you have won $1500 !!

Exploring DevOps Metrics in Human Terms - Part 1 | HackerNoon

I discuss metrics in DevOps in human terms. I write about metrics vs. logs, TSDB (Time Series Database), Prometheus: server, clients, data format, cardinality

“In general, metrics are unexpectedly complicated. We are trying various engineering and mathematical tricks to compress an inconvenient, large data set into something visual. Unlike logs, which are simply written "as is" and are probably already used in your services. By the way, why not parse logs and build some graphs based on it? Of course, you can do it this way, and it's fine - up to a certain limit.”

Congratulations, @annasher! You have won $1000!

Container Security Unveiled: Protecting Your Digital Cargo With a Touch of Humor 🛡️ | HackerNoon

Secure your digital cargo with container security. Learn how to protect Docker, Kubernetes, and microservices. Explore network security and secrets management.

When you embrace immutability, you eliminate the risk of unintentional changes or misconfigurations that could introduce security weaknesses. It's like putting a protective force field around your containers, shielding them from any potential harm.

By adhering to a strict policy of not modifying running containers, you create a stable and secure environment for your applications to thrive, leaving hackers scratching their heads and wondering how to get past your impenetrable defense.
