Developers love their logging. Virtually every programming language lets you create additional output for your application in the form of logs. It’s an easy way to debug code and it’s understood even by junior developers. Logs tell you if a call to a certain method has failed if a specific line of code has been reached during execution, or when to get a local variable’s value. And who could blame them?

The process of writing code has evolved—is your organization ready for the demands of today’s software development? The individual development steps haven’t changed much. Code is still written, tested, integrated, and released. But the way these steps are accomplished, how code is handed off from one stage to another, and how it is released, is vastly different. The goal today is to get applications out the door faster.

I'm one of the fortunate people who have witnessed the (r)evolution of software development and delivery throughout my career. From programs deployed in local racks to serverless running with the pay-as-you-go paradigm, we've seen a breakthrough in computing in a relatively short time.

2009 has a special place in the history of software and technology as it is the year that formally saw the birth of DevOps. In June of that year, John Allspaw and Paul Hammond presented their talk, 10 Deploys a Day: Dev and Ops Cooperation at Flicker” at the O’Reilly Velocity conference. Legend has it that Patrick Debois was not physically present at the talk, however, he did see the recording of the presentation.

Developers are often discouraged by the amount of time spent debugging code. Time spent debugging is time away from developing interesting new features. So how can this pain point be alleviated? The first way to cut down on time spent debugging is to write better code. Code without any of those tricky, off-by-one errors and null object dereferences. Ideal code. But we all know it’s impossible to write perfect code on the first try. Besides, requirements change.

How can your team work faster to identify problems in their code? And more importantly, how can you reduce, eliminate, or solve problems while building a culture of collaboration rather than blame? Today’s fast-paced DevOps environments center around the CI/CD pipeline, tuned to give your team quick feedback loops and let you release even multiple times per day.

Today's applications are more distributed, and today's world is more remote, than ever. But developers just don't have the same freedom and comfort that they’ve become accustomed to when developing in remote environments. One of the biggest challenges of remote environments is having the ability to debug applications.

In modern software development practices, it’s imperative to understand continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery/deployment (CD). The goal of a CI/CD pipeline is to allow developers to apply new software changes to a production environment quickly and safely in order to generate business value. Understanding the difference between continuous integration, delivery, and deployment is important for both engineers and business leaders.

According to a survey conducted by Jetbrains, Spring Boot is the top Java framework for developing web applications. Spring Boot applications are usually deployed on a dedicated server and/or container via necessary orchestration. Normally, this inevitably includes the work of managing the infrastructure and scalability of the application.

As the world migrates to the concept of DevOps the primary goal becomes clear. How can we increase velocity while maintaining our system’s stability? With the motive of going faster, we also risk increased chances of failure. The risk is even higher when considering concepts such as GitOps where we see a move from push-based pipelines to pull-based ones with the objective of increasing velocity in going to production with changes to our Kubernetes systems.

Thundra Sidekick removes the debugging burdens and enables developers to put tracepoints to the code which don’t break the execution but take snapshots. Then takes it to the next level by displaying the distributed trace of the modern applications. Thundra Sidekick is helpful when developers work on remote environments and debug their code while they build.

There's a misconception around serverless that it will remove the Ops people from organizations. Serverless removes undifferentiated heavy lifting but makes the Ops people even more valuable for the teams because they are experienced about the failures of a software. Using extensive observability, Ops folks can adapt themselves into serverless and provide more value for their company. In this video, we discuss serverless adaptation for DevOps teams and how Thundra can help.

It has been more than five years since serverless became part of our application development life cycle, following the announcement of AWS Lambda. After realizing some of their limitations, AWS has resolved many of the issues with serverless, and there are many pure serverless applications in production now. In this webinar, we'll talk about the current state of serverless as of June 2020, and discuss the existing challenges of serverless, as well as their solutions.

With serverless, there are now fewer things to be scared of while maintaining always-on software thanks to outsourced scalability, availability, and security issues. At the same time, developers tend to architect more distributed systems in order to take advantage of serverless and guarantee the modularity of their architecture. The downside of this is that losing access to the underlying server makes debugging harder than ever because you can’t pause the execution to debug.

Since its inception, the most pronounced problem for serverless has always been debugging it natively. Abstracting away the cloud platform freed up the time to manage the runtime environment but it also took away the opportunity to debug the application from their IDE. There are various attempts to address this need in the industry. The most recent update by Thundra makes it possible to debug AWS Lambda functions on popular IDEs while Lambdas are running in their native environment.

Kubernetes is a complex system but not a complicated one. Its layered architecture is open to creating disasters caused by networking, security, configuration, and cloud provider limitations. Learning from others' mistakes is the new reality of succeeding for cloud applications. This perfectly applies to Kubernetes-based software architectures and your software, too. If you don't understand how other people will fail, it's more likely that you'll fail at some point.

Learn how you can gain observability through serverless architectures with native tools like AWS X-Ray, open-source solutions like OpenTelemetry, and automated solutions like Thundra! This paper walks through the problem of serverless observability. It starts by defining the observability problem space, explaining how debugging and tracing are only part of a larger picture of application behavior. We'll explore AWS CloudWatch and X-Ray as a first attempt at observability. Then we will detail several open source serverless availability tools, before discussing Thundra's automated approach to observability.
