Artifact Repository

Can you imagine a large manufacturer like Toyota, Samsung or General Electric managing all their parts without one or numerous warehouses? Probably not, because it simply would be inefficient or even impossible to manage. The same applies for manufacturing software. To avoid inefficient development practices, you need to manage all the parts involved. The warehouse for software development is called a repository manager and their are many benefits to using them.

The Lego Death Star has about 1/10th of the parts of a Toyota; 3803 to be exact. If you’ve ever assembled the Lego Death Star, or anything lego related, you know having the right parts is critical. Even more impressive is what the group over at Titans Creations did. This group of Lego fans (known as My Own Creation[ers]) built a scale model (mini-figure scale) of the Millennium Falcon. Coming in at around 10,000 parts it’s one of the more, if not most impressive custom models to date.

In part one of this series, “Rugged DevOps: Survival is Not Mandatory”, I shared news that 1 in 16 open source and third-party components downloaded last year included a known vulnerability.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to be a part of the Sonatype team that is literally reinventing how quality software gets made. As the new guy leading marketing, my first test was to explain Sonatype to my mom. She’s a smart cookie — but she’s 82 years old — and doesn’t know very much about software.

Two Perspectives Jack, an accomplished application security pro, tells me, “The developers won’t talk to us.  It’s like we speak a different language.  They are releasing new builds so fast, how could they check each one for security vulnerabilities?  We can’t move as fast as they do.” Then in the next moment, Diane, a DevOps […]
