5. Cafe: HashiCorp Waypoint workshop

Highlights We started with some insights from last Thursday and a general introduction to HashiCorp Waypoint by Brendan. The CI/CD configuration is something Abubakar is working on for bringing Waypoint Docker images (pre-installed, useful entrypoints) into OOTB CI/CD template includes for Auto-DevOps. We then went to changing Brendan’s demo into using the new image - live in the session. Last but not least, we discussed the roadmap and future thoughts around Waypoint. Read More…

22. Kaeffchen: HashiConf Boundary, Honeycomb, OpenTelemetry & JaegerTracing

Highlights We started with a wild speculation on the new Hashicorp product to be announced at HashiConf. CI/CD pipelines, monitoring or something around Vault and security and compliance management? Spoiler: In the evening, we learned about Boundary being the latter. The discussion switched into metrics and tracing where David shared a Puppet blog post on collecting GCP info and system metrics for Honeycomb. He was so kind to live demo use cases for Honeycomb after reading more on OpenTelemetry. Read More…

21. Kaeffchen: GitLab with Gitpod, debugging C++ applications with GDB

Highlights After exploring Gitpod last week, we decided to try it out with a C++ project. Actually, we created an error situation to try out the GDB debugger. Yes, a segfault. After investigating with the terminal based gdb command, we thought about how this integrates into Gitpod itself. And voilà, with the following documentation we were able to integrate GDB on the compiled binary. { // Use IntelliSense to learn about possible attributes. Read More…

3. Cafe: Learning Rust with Gitpod and GitLab Workshop

Highlights Following our last week’s Gitpod adventure, I decided to create a new light-weight workshop around Gitpod and GitLab. Once settled in with an example project in Java, we took course into learning Rust from scratch. During the extended session - we wanted to fix the module import no matter the time - it became clear that Rust has many good things we know from Python (import modules and aliases), C++, Golang, and more.
