I’m working on the upstream fabric8-wit project of openshift.io. In this Go project, we embrace testing as best as we can in order to deliver a stable component. Testing acts as our safety net to allow for fast-paced feature development. This blog post is about our recent change in our testing strategy. It is not as boring as it might sound at first. 😉

One question, which is often asked of me is “How do I quickly get new features into production?” This is the whole idea of microservices, to quickly move features into production. At this year’s Red Hat Summit, I spoke to this during my OpenShift Application Runtimes session, introducing it as an upcoming product.

Unless you’ve been on a complete media blackout for the last year or so (entirely understandable) you’ve likely heard a lot about Serverless (or FaaS – Function as a Service). Serverless is a major shift in the way developers build and deliver software systems – it greatly simplifies development by insulating the developer from infrastructure concerns and pushes the envelope on cost and efficiency of execution.

As I mentioned prior to Red Hat Summit, there was a whole lot of activity around the complementary aspects of microservices, containers, open source, and cloud, so I’ve assembled this recorded set of sessions on the topic Cloud Native Development. Enjoy!

Rafael Benevides, Director of Developer Experience, at Red Hat spoke on rapidly deploying software on OpenShift with zero downtime.
Throwing software over to an operations team to deploy during a scheduled maintenance window is a thing of the past. Businesses simply can no longer afford scheduled downtime. Applications need to be developed such that small, frequent updates can be released continuously via containers. Rafael shows us how to solve this problem with OpenShift.

Recently, the focus on the continuous delivery of value has created a lot of interest in microservices, CI/CD, and containers. The idea is that microservices are small and well defined enough to enable rapid innovation, automated testing, and frequent deployments with minimal risk. This is made possible by adopting continuous integration and continuous delivery pipelines. CI/CD requires the ability to quickly, easily, reliably, and automatically create and tear down complete execution environments. Linux containers address this need by creating lightweight, portable, and isolated runtime environments. It becomes easy to reach the conclusion that the path to digital transform is continuous value delivery via microservices-based on containers and CI/CD.

Part II of the OpenShift.io Developer Tools overview follows on the heels of the introduction session, this time presented by Pete Muir and Gorkem Ercan. In this session, we are taken through the integrated OpenShift.io Eclipse Che IDE.
