Performance testing and engineering is typically thought of as a purely technical concern. However, in our experience across many varied industries and organisations, it’s the people in key non-technical roles that can have the greatest impact on both the performance of the end product and the sanity of the delivery team.

Containers and allied mechanisms for application lifecycle management and orchestration are gaining a huge amount of attention in the tech community. A few recent surveys show that developers are the early adopters of this technology with operational use set to gain further traction in the next twelve months.

The technical advancements in every aspect of software development lifecycle make it clear that there are more than one solution to any problem.
In this article I examine Istio’s service mesh capabilities to address issues that developers face while creating microservices and compare it with the widely adopted Netflix frameworks. Istio takes away many of these microservices concerns from the developer and delegates them to operations where collective behaviours can be managed better.

Australia has one of the highest rates of personal debt in the world. Estimates indicate that the average Australian owns at least 1 credit card and that roughly 57% of our $2 trillion personal debt is attributable to mortgages. These statistics lend themselves to the assumption that majority of Australians have at some point in their life experienced the process of applying for a line of credit.

Data retention has become a crucial topic over the past few years, with organisations continuously exploring better ways to define and implement secure processes that cater to their needs. This becomes increasingly difficult when most of our data is stored/generated in the cloud, hence, requiring a flexible and innovative approach towards managing our data assets.

Microservices have become popular as a way of eliminating hidden dependencies between software components and allowing fine-grained deployment without dragging along unneccessary context. In this way, microservices promote autonomy for agile development teams and allow an application to evolve more naturally and in some cases to develop faster.

StreamSets DataCollector (SDC) is a data streaming tool that helps you move data from where it is generated or collected, to where you need it for analysis or processing. I personally found SDC interesting as it sits somewhere between systems integration, which is my background and big data, which was new to me at the time.

Low-Code is a disruptive new technology that is changing the way in which applications are being developed. Low-Code is ushering in an era where anyone can develop an application (using a bit of gumption) because it favours a low-tech configuration-first approach.

Container orchestrators are the next big thing in the modern containerisation movement. And unless you have painted your career into a legacy corner, you will encounter these technologies sooner or later.

We make companies feel young again by helping them move faster, to be more nimble and creative. Many factors go into “feeling young” and all of them lie in that nexus of forces that are changing the way business and technology work together. The scale and the breadth of change can be bewildering but a closer look reveals a common thread that runs throughout—autonomy.
