Featured image for Red Hat article roundup

Welcome to our monthly article recap, where we round up the latest popular content from Red Hat Developer in one helpful place. Like last month, GitOps, Go, and Kubernetes security topics were in high demand from our readers. Without further ado, let's dive into the July highlights.

GitOps workflows and security

In GitOps, Git is not only your source of truth (as it is for most projects) but also your interface to your environment. Developers have used Git workflows for their application delivery method for years, and now operations teams must adopt similar workflows. GitOps advocate Christian Hernandez offered tips and best practices to keep in mind for GitOps deployments.

Interested in diving deeper into GitOps principles? Download Christian's new e-book, The Path to GitOps, to understand where GitOps fits in your continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines. This short guide outlines the various tools and methods you can use to implement GitOps in your organization.

Sahil Sethi also showed you how to integrate security policies into a GitOps environment to apply consistently throughout your clusters. Security policies are part of Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes, a platform that helps users configure and deploy applications and other valuable services such as metrics. 

SaaS security

The most recent article of our series on building and deploying Software as a service (SaaS) applications covered SaaS security for containers in Kubernetes environments. Within modern enterprise environments, it's critical to build security into the full life cycle of planning, development, operations, and maintenance.

Keep an eye out for future installments covering automation for SaaS development, scalability and disaster recovery, and more.

Integrate Infinispan and ASP.NET Core

The open source Infinispan data store is a popular option for in-memory operations. ASP.NET Core applications can now easily integrate Infinispan as a caching service or session provider. Vittorio Rigamonti provides answers on how to do that in C# on Linux in his article Add an Infinispan cache to your ASP.NET application.

Go Toolset container images

Red Hat's Go Toolset package is available as a container image and offers developers a kickstart to building modern Go applications. It delivers the Go language with Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) support for cryptographic modules and the Delve debugger to Red Hat Enterprise Linux customers.

In How to use Go Toolset container images, Alejandro Sáez Morollón illustrates how these images support modern Go development and make you more productive in the cloud.

Secure secrets on Kubernetes 

Dekorate is a tool that simplifies the process of generating cert-manager custom resources. You can use it to create secrets, such as encryption keys and passwords for your Spring Boot application.

Read Secure Kubernetes certificates with cert-manager and Dekorate and learn how to keep your secrets safe while developing or running production applications.
