The New Stack Makers: Staying in "the Zone" with the Right Dev Tools

6/8/2021
Today’s developer seems to be working with more tools than ever. Building a Node.js-based JavaScript application could require over a dozen tools at times to get code out into production. It's easy to get sucked down a rabbit hole and not stay focused. Debugging an application once in production can also be a challenge: You want as much context at your fingertips as needed while maintaining a reasonable signal-to-noise ratio. Dan O’Brien, a software engineer for feature management platform...

Data Persistence and Storage over Pancakes at KubeCon EU 2021

5/19/2021
At this year’s KubeCon EU 2021, some things were the same — it was still virtual which meant it attracted a huge turnout of a more broadly international audience — and some things were different — like that almost everyone’s bought into Kubernetes and cloud native architecture, it’s now just how they use it. Another KubeCon tradition, The New Stack hosted a live pancake breakfast to reflect on the maturity of Kubernetes particularly around data persistence and storage. Our Publisher Alex...

GitOps Modern Practices for Reaching a Desired State and Decreasing Exposure

5/17/2021
As GitOps moves beyond improving how code repositories are managed for continuous integration/continuous integration (CI/CD), the security component of GitOps has become more of a pressing issue as the use of Git, and GitOps, becomes more widely adopted. The open source community should also play a critical role in improving GitOps. Hosted by Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, this recording features Om Moolchandani, co-founder and CISO/CTO, for Accurics, Cindy Blake,...

Developers Just Want To Know if They Have a Problem

5/10/2021
Developers just want to know if they have a vulnerability before putting code into production. But often, the answer back is not what the developer wants to hear.

What to Build First: Istio or Kubernetes?

4/22/2021
What we do know about Kubernetes? It’s a raw, gaping maw. It’s not meant for most of us. What is needed? Access to the grinding, digital gears that make what we know of as distributed architectures. Istio is an example of a management layer for Kubernetes, said Zack Butcher, part of the founding engineering team at Tetrate, a service mesh company. He joins Varun Talwar, co-founder at Tetrate for a discussion about the service mesh Istio and its role in the management of highly distributed...
