Hey, guys! I'm a full-stack web dev, and I'm mostly using this platform as an excuse to document, study and take the dust off of my English (it is my second language). I hope to be useful for anyone that passes by my profile.

Hello, insert some kind of wave emoji, I'm Raphael. I'm a freelance DevOps and do unhealthy amounts of automation, kubernetes-stuffs and cloud magic. I've been a lurker for about 3 years and last week thought I'd finally open my mouth and chime in :D

If you want to read about Container, Kubernetes or Cloud-Stuff, I'd be happy to write a few things down for you :D

Hey Raphael

I’m going from being a low-code developer to full-stack. I’m building my first web app and wondering how I go from ‘it runs on my machine’ to ‘ive got a multi-environment, self-healing, auto-scaling, well-oiled internet machine’. What would you say are the key tasks to achieve with containers and when should they be done in the project?

Cheers
Ferg

Oof, that is a fantastic question, and deserves a detailed answer.
If you want, I can whip up an article about this real quick, since it might blow up your viewport, once I hammer out the things I think "are necessary".
It would probably be too much / out of scope for this welcome thread :)

Rereading it, it is a massive question! No need to rush on my part but would be great to hear what you’ve got to say. I currently work with a development platform that provides a lot of developer functionality through containers and orchestration so I’ve seen the benefits. What I don’t know is how effortful things are, so I guess I’d also be interested in where the biggest return on effort is.
How long have you been doing devops/cloud/container stuff for?

Thread Thread

Raphael Habereder • Edited

Indeed it is a massive question, but I love it to be honest. I'll gladly write about it. Maybe it's so much, it could become a series. I'll see how far I'll get tomorrow, I already got a sizeable post drafted :D

I've been doing devops for about 12 years now, though I have been more on the automation side of things, so heavier on the ops part, than dev.
Containers and Cloud I'd say about 8-10 years, though at first more "private cloud" corporate stuff, public clouds roundabout 5 years with Azure and AWS now.

As for the effort of things.
I'd say the ROI depends on the requirements and the mentality of the team, you decide how far you want to go.
From a perfectly automated pipeline that is triggered by a git push, all the way through staging, up to production is a perfectly normal thing and, depending on the requirements, can be done in just a few days, up to a few weeks, or even months.

Others in the meantime want to build containers locally, test them by hand and go down their checklist, like a "manual pipeline", until they deploy their container to production by hand.

Disclaimer: I'm pretty hardcore on the automation side. While it is definitely a bigger investment up-front, once you are fully or even semi-automated (which isn't as much work as it may sound at first), you are essentially developing 100% of the time. All the menial deployment tasks are gone, which can result in a huge net profit in development-time, which itself again results in more features, more quickly and thereby happier stakeholders.

A few days back I wrote a post about "Zero to Kubernetes", which basically automates a local kubernetes setup into one command. If you want to dabble with containers, you could probably make good use of that :)

Cheers Raphael, I will take a look at your post tonight. I’m in full agreement with you about automation - I’d rather invest a bit more time now to save time later, and also hope to avoid mistakes through humans doing repeatable tasks. Plus repeatable tasks are just boring, right?

Hello, I'm here because I love reading up on new technologies and how I can utilize them in my own work. I'm always stuck on what I should work on for personal projects and tend to jump between programming languages. Currently I'm working on a movie watchlist / suggestion application for me and a few friends, with that I'm learning express js, mongoDB with mongoose, deploying my application. I'm pretty early on in my career and want to absorb as much knowledge i can.

Hello, everyone!

Just landed here, wishing everyone is safe (be it at home, in a protest or elsewhere). Wear masks, y´all.
Feeling uneasy among all the possibilities out there, especially since I´m a beginner in tech studies/development - a whole new world opens out, which is so awesome!

My current status is 'employed' (yey!), although I have an urge to do something else - in fact, something that I haven´t figured out yet. So... yeah, pretty much, I´d welcome any advice concerning what could be a good path to follow until I can grasp what I want to create and share with the world.
I´m a hard worker, BTW, my bosses seem to love that characteristic in me.

Looking forward to making new connections, and have fun in the process!

Hi all, I am a BI engineer and passionate about learning next-gen tools and tech which deals with Data. Though I am a beginner over here but still looking forward to learning lots of things from this community which can lead to solving some real-world problems. Also, way back in college I always urged to perform some sentimental analysis and also to get my hand dirty with data mining techniques. I am very curious to explore both of the topics any suggestion and guidance will be really appreciatable.
Thank You
Happy Learning

Hello I'm Mike from the UK, I've been here a week and am loving it. I'm looking to expand my knowledge and be prompted to try out new things! Also very happy to help others.

I've been in this business for a long time (hmmm, err, well I sold my first computer game in 1983, when I was still in school). I've been lucky that my passion for software development has taken me all over the world. The biggest thing my career so far has taught me is:

  • Great ideas can come from anyone at any time
  • You must always be learning and striving to be better
  • Never think you know everything or you are the cleverest person in the room
  • Question everything, especially established wisdom when you must!

In my first week I got inspired by some great other work and wrote an open source library I'm really proud of :)

I've been a hobbyist developer for about 25 years, and have leveraged my webdev skills in my career as an educator, librarian, and editor, but now I'm a PhD student in information and library science who will be graduating in a year or so and thinking of pivoting to webdev for my next career phase.

I’m currently building my first full-stack web application using c#, .net on the back end, and react on the front end.
