TDD and System Architecture

Net Objectives

In truth, some of these problems actually indicate faults in the system architecture. For example, developers will struggle to write unit tests of behavior that is embedded in a user interface, or in stored procedures … Continue reading "TDD and System Architecture". When first adopting TDD, developers can run into some roadblocks that seem to indicate that TDD is a difficult process.

Building Docker images for multiple operating system architectures

What Quality Metrics Matter Most for DevOps?

DevOps.com

Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies, system architectures and team structures, most organizations still rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era. The way we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the past five years—but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the same.

Operational Excellence and the Success of Software Deployments

DevOps.com

The driving idea is reliability must be baked into system architectures and infrastructure from the beginning. When we talk about best practices for software reliability, the conversation tends to focus on optimizing the applications themselves and the infrastructure that hosts them. That’s certainly true. But by focusing too much on the design and implementation of […]. The post Operational Excellence and the Success of Software Deployments appeared first on DevOps.com.

Top Disadvantages to Adopting Microservices (And Why You Should Do It Anyway)

OverOps

New system architectures introduce brand new skills, tools and processes that need to be learned. The flow of data across new distributed systems is much more complex, especially within systems working at mass scale. Unfortunately, because the systems creating the logs are distributed, so are the logs. Containers are taking over the software world, changing the way and pace in which we design, write and deliver software.
