When a pod is unhealthy in a Kubernetes cluster, does anyone notice? Have you ever deployed a new version of an app to Kubernetes, tried to test the new feature you added or bug you fixed and found the same behavior as before? Have you ever then double-checked your code, rerun your tests, checked a few more things, only then to realize that while the deployment got updated, the new pods never replaced the old because of some misconfiguration or other mistake?

Keeping track of changes to a project makes it easier for everyone to clearly see what has changed, but manually curating a changelog often falls by the wayside. Today, we're releasing a new skill called Keep a Changelog that makes maintaining a changelog as easy as annotating a commit message or adding a label to an issue or pull request. It is based on the ideas in the keep a changelog project. The Keep a Changelog skill automates the process of maintaining a changelog file for a repository.

Kubernetes offers several ways to update resources: apply, edit, patch, and replace. Unfortunately, there seems to be some confusion about what each does and when to use them. When searching Google for ‘kubernetes apply vs replace’, the highlighted answer provided from Stack Overflow is wrong. When searching for ‘kubernetes apply vs patch’, the first entry of the results is the kubectl patch documentation, which does not include a comparison of apply and patch.

A question commonly asked on StackOverflow and the Kubernetes Slack is how to update a Secret or whether it is possible to use kubectl apply on a ConfigMap. The answer may be simpler than you thought. If you have created a Kubernetes Secret or ConfigMap with kubectl create secret|configmap, you may have expected there to be a similar Secret/ConfigMap helper command under kubectl apply. If so, you would have been wrong. Fortunately, there is a workaround.

In a world of many rapidly evolving technologies, no one can be an expert on everything. Knowledge sharing is critical to team success. One of the most valuable forms of knowledge sharing is through automation. Yet we don't automate enough, because it's hard to capture knowledge and make it available to others. This results in wasted effort, constant distraction, and inevitable errors. Atomist's mission is to change that, through a new approach to automation.
