With two major conferences in a single week, Microsoft's Build and Google IO, there were a lot of announcements.
Last week was Kubecon Europe, and that means a lot of announcements. Most of which I'll ignore in this note, but I'll mention the Operator Framework and gVisor. In addition, Stack Overflow released a Teams version and AWS CodeBuild supports local builds.
Another container focused note, with the general availability of Azure Container Instances, a new free security scanner by Aqua, and Netflix open sourcing Titus, their container management tool.
Earlier this April, the CI/CD service Wercker released their new Steps Store. As I long ago built a step for generating Hugo sites like my own, I decided to upgrade it and see what has changed.
Azure Sphere is announced for IoT security; Docker EE 2.0 is released; and there are a couple of interesting new tools for Kubernetes.
As I spent last week wholly immersed in AWS events, it's strange that this note doesn't concern that. Instead, it's all about standards with WebAuthn reaching a stage where implementations can start and Docker donating the Docker Registry API to the OCI as a standard.
Cloudflare’s releases their DNS resolver 188.8.131.52 while AWS gives us a new Secrets Manager.
Jenkins builds a CI/CD tool for Kubernetes, Microsoft announces Windows Server 2019 with better container support as well as the Azure serial console, and Cloudflare released its Workers.
A cloud provider centric note, with Microsoft finally releasing managed MySQL and PostgreSQL as well as open sourcing their service fabric, Amazon ECS gaining service discovery, and GCP extending the usefulness of their Cloud Shell.
Yesterday I woke up to an email from AWS, saying that the serverless app I wrote was being featured on the SAR website. Which seems like a good enough reason to detail how it works.
