Shortly after you first start learning about DevOps, it becomes clear that there is no single clear definition of the term. It is not, as is often assumed, a tool or a programming language. Rather, to put it in a nutshell, it is a collection of procedures, practices, and methods to deliver new software features faster. The aim is therefore to shorten the time from the idea phase to publication in order to create satisfied customers.Read more
ince companies have very different requirements when it comes to data security, maintenance costs, security, legal compliance, etc., various cloud models have been developed. A basic distinction is made among “public”, “private” and “hybrid” cloud architectures.Read more
IT compliance in practice – correctly containing and deleting data and projects in B2B software development
Since compliance is about adhering to regulations of any kind, this is very complex and individual issue. That's why this post will be dealing with a very specific topic: the deletion of data when the contract ends. In B2B software development, it is customary for contracts to contain a clause on the delivery or destruction of all records and documents related to the project.Read more
The first part of this series demonstrated the use cases and benefits of delivering presentations with reveal.js. They are Docs As Code, and therefore they can be subjected to versioning management and of course delivered via Continuous Delivery. Furthermore, we demonstrate how the Jenkins pipelines can be used to deploy to GitHub Pages using a model concrete implementation. This article demonstrates additional alternatives for deployment (Sonatype Nexus and Kubernetes), while the general structure of the `Jenkinsfile` remains the same.Read more
It is curious that in the field of software development, in which developers create something new every day, the "never change a running system" approach is very widely followed when it comes to the underlying toolchain. Downtime is too expensive, whether something goes wrong when updating an important system and the developers are unable to work for some period of time or if even the most recent work status is lost. This post compares the required effort for the installation and the operation of a toolchain for three different scenarios.Read more
Cloudogu EcoSystem is an extremely efficient way to operate a software development infrastructure. Nevertheless, there are scenarios where it might make sense to separate projects into individual instances of the Cloudogu EcoSystem.Read more
Due to the recent announcement of the acquisition of GitHub by Microsoft and the (sometimes very emotional) discussions about possible ramifications, it becomes obvious that people, teams or companies use services like GitHub for many different reasons. That is because they all have different prerequisites and requirements. GitHub hosts code for 100% Open Source developers as well as for companies with private repositories only and everything in between.Read more
In software development it is crucial to share information; no matter what kind of information. Whether it is about technical or functions details or about requirements; good knowledge management helps you to focus on your work and to prevent mistakes. Probably you know this first hand: it is easy to start documenting something, but the difficult part is to keep it consistent, in a central location and up to date. Once a project has been running for some time you often spend quite some time to search folders for some specific document or you create new documents, because you didn’t know there was already a similar one.Read more
Over the years we talked a lot about SCM-Manager, but we never officially introduced it as one of the Cloudogu EcoSystem. Since SCM-Manager had its 6th anniversary not long ago, we want to catch up on that.We mentioned SCM-Manager the first time about 4 years ago, when the current version was 1.28. These days version 1.52 was released. That is reason enough to give an update on SCM-Manager, to sum up the changes and improvements that were made in the meantime.Read more
An easy way to implement continuous code inspection to software development projects is by using SonarQube. It offers various code inspection rules for a large number of programming languages. The application can be connected to continuous integration servers like Jenkins, Hudson, Gerrit, Bamboo or TeamCity via plugins. It provides you with a dashboard that tells you about the code quality of your projects. SonarQube is installed and ready to use on Cloudogu EcoSystem.Read more
Depending on your team size, project structure and requirements, it can be very useful to grant permissions on the basis on groups, not for single users. Using user groups can save a lot of time when setting up a new project, or when a new member joins a team. Therefore we want to show you how you can implement your own groups in SCM-Manager Universe.Read more
Do you strive for something smart and efficient to manage source code? You are excited about the great tool, SCM-Manager, but you are not an expert in source code management yet? We will explain you, how to get started with SCM-Manager step by step.Read more
