[session] High-Availability for Hybrid Cloud-Based Apps | @CloudExpo @Cedexis #Cloud #APM #Monitoring

JDJ - Tue, 2017-10-03 16:30
The dynamic nature of the cloud means that change is a constant when it comes to modern cloud-based infrastructure. Delivering modern applications to end users, therefore, is a constantly shifting challenge. Delivery automation helps IT Ops teams ensure that apps are providing an optimal end user experience over hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud environments, no matter what the current state of the infrastructure is. To employ a delivery automation strategy that reflects your business rules, making real-time decisions based on a combination of real user monitoring, synthetic testing, APM, NGINX / local load balancers, and other data sources, is critical.

Making the Jump to Go: A Guide for Java Developers

Java Lobby Announcements - Tue, 2017-10-03 06:01

If you’re a Java developer like me, chances are you’ve heard rumblings of the trendy new language that came out of Google: Go.

And if, like me, you’re always looking for ways to code faster and better, you may be asking yourself whether any of your existing applications are good candidates to move to Go. While not every Java application should be ported to Go, in many cases, Go is a more productive development framework than Java. There is, therefore, a great deal of value in understanding what Go can do; where it builds on the strengths offered by Java, and where it differs.

[session] Scheduling in #Kubernetes | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Docker #DX

JDJ - Mon, 2017-10-02 22:00
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, will answer these questions and demonstrate techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.

A Simple Try-With-Resources Construct in Scala

Java Lobby Announcements - Mon, 2017-10-02 09:01

You may have noticed that Scala is lacking the try-with-resources construct that Java has. This construct allows us to automatically invoke the close method of an AutoCloseable resource at the end of a code block that uses it. The interface is very broadly used in lots of classes of the standard Java library and many third-party libs as well.

This structure is really handy because it allows us to avoid human errors caused by inattentiveness. Calling the close method after the resource has been used can be easily missed or forgotten if done manually every time, but the consequences of missing it can sometimes be severe.

JShell: Finally, an Official Shell in Java 9

Java Lobby Announcements - Mon, 2017-10-02 06:01

The shell or the REPL is a well-known tool in many programming languages. Typically, this is more common in scripting languages such as Python or Node, but more recently it’s been adopted by JVM languages like Clojure and Groovy as well. The upcoming Java 9 release finally brings this shell functionality to the Java language as well, in the form of JShell.

This article will explore what we can do with JShell and how to make the most of it.

Islands Are Wasteful in #DevSecOps | @DevOpsSummit @CAinc #DevOps #DX

JDJ - Sun, 2017-10-01 10:00
DevSecOps – a trend around transformation in process, people and technology – is about breaking down silos and waste along the software development lifecycle and using agile methodologies, automation and insights to help get apps to market faster. This leads to higher quality apps, greater trust in organizations, less organizational friction, and ultimately a five-star customer experience. These apps are the new competitive currency in this digital economy and they’re powered by data. Without data or data-based interactions, these apps would be of little value to the user and would be just static one-dimensional bulletin boards. Imagine a banking app, for example, that does not give you data about your account or let you take some action. How much value is this bringing to the user?

Following OOP Principles: Hermetization in Java

Java Lobby Announcements - Sun, 2017-10-01 07:01

Have you ever looked at the code that you had written a couple of months ago and asked yourself: “Who could leave such a mess here?” Have you ever been so lazy that you didn’t think of what accessors/mutators you need, simply hitting “Generate getters and setters” for your entity in your IDE? Or maybe you have used Lombok's @Getter/@Setter annotations to get the same effect?

Yep, just as I thought!

Automation Framework in Analytics (Part 1)

Java Lobby Announcements - Fri, 2017-09-29 22:01

This blog series highlights how we use our own products to test our events service, which currently ingests more than three trillion events per month.

With fast iterations and deliverables, testing has always been a continuously evolving machine — and a reason why AppDynamics is aligning toward microservices-based architectures. While there are multiple ways to prudently handle the problem of testing, we'd like to share some of the learnings and key requirements which have shaped our elastic-testing framework, powered by Docker and AWS.
