Podcast about DevSecOps


This time, we are joined by Henrik Høegh who shares his unique perspective on applying the theory of constraint to IT transformation as well as how it applies in the world of Cloud Native. We go back to the origin of DevOps, discussing the various problems companies are facing when transforming their organizations and adopting cultural changes.

Julien and Andrey got together to define the scale and ways to automate the scaling of your infrastructure in response to changes in load patterns. What are the prerequisites implementing scaling? What is cooling down, warm up, horizontal and vertical scaling, scale-up, and scale in? What are the metrics that could be useful for making scaling decisions? And last but not least, the very unexpected spin that Julien gives to the conversation.

Our guest speaker is Anton Babenko, he is DevSecOps Talks podcast fan, AWS Community Hero, Terraform fanatic, HashiCorp Ambassador and a prolific open source contributor. After listening to episode #9 Terraform in CI and #1 Infrastructure as code, Anton decided that enough is enough and volunteered to give his point of view on Terragrunt since he though that we are missing a few important points. In this episode, we are discussing the use cases of Terragrunt, a wrapper around Terraform for working with multiple environment and modules.

How do you start to implement a CI pipeline when dealing with infrastructure as code implemented via Terraform? What are the security concerns when the credentials to the whole kingdom are used in an automated process? In this episode, we discuss the various security and feasibility aspects of using Terraform in a CI pipeline.

Andrey tells us the story of how DevOps came into existence and took over the market. We discuss the marketing around it, its relationship with DevSecOps. We tried to shed a light on what is marketing strategy versus implementing DevOps in an organization. We also compared DevOps to SRE (Site Reliability Engineering).

In this episode, Mattias, Julien, and Andrey share tips and tricks on how to stay on top of what is going on in the industry, resources they use for continuous learning

This time Johan Abildskov, a Senior Consultant with Praqma/Eficode, joins us to talk about SemVer (Semantic Versioning), and we finally get to hear what Julien has to say about it. We get to explore different options regarding versioning and how it helps humans communicate. At the end of the podcast, everyone gets to share their approach and recommendations for versioning things.

We had a few potential topics for this episode but before getting started with them we decided to discuss what technological problems we were solving during the last two weeks. As it turns out there were quite a lot to discuss. Tune in for tips on auditing ssh session through a jump host, preventing downloads from AWS S3 even if you got read access, credentials in Git repository, why you should (or should not) use Kubernetes and more.
