Once upon a time, there was a great battle between speed and security. Development wanted to go fast. But, security wanted to slow down and be safe. For years, they endured the pain of testing late in the lifecycle, sorting through reams of false positive reports, and dealing with the added cost of pushing bad software out the door. They knew there had to be a better way…
I love watching TED Talks. To me, they are 15 well-spent minutes watching experts around the world provide great insights into things I thought I knew well. Some I had never imagined or topics on which I want to gain a deeper perspective.

Part 3 — Part 4 Component-Capable Release Management is Key to DevOps – Part 5 Up Next DevOps conversations are dominated by release management and production deployment. These are the primary topics at the DevOps conferences that we have attended in Atlanta, New York, Vancouver, Portland, Barcelona and London. This concerns me at some […]
Sonatype Nexus can easily be integrated with external systems due to the fact that all functionality is available via various REST API calls. On the other hand Nexus can be expanded by writing plugins for Nexus that customize it and add further functionality.
Part 2 — Part 3 of Component Management Strategy and DevOps – Part 4 Up Next Ok, I need a “blog post delivery tool chain” because part 3 in my DevOps series of blog posts is woefully behind my expected delivery date. It’s like a broken development process – I’m […]
In the Nexus Live event John Nagro and Tom McLaughlin from HubSpot detailed how they are using
Nexus as a repository for their development and release components. They
found that they need to be able to quickly create another virtual
machine as part of their build infrastructure to react to changes in
datacenter locations and other parameters.
We have been participating in the devopsdays events by presenting an ignite talk on how DevOps need to be aligned with how applications are constructed today – with open source components. The ignite presentation style is really interesting – you have 5 minutes to present 20 slides that advance automatically every 15 seconds. I started […]
Intro – Part 2 of Component Management Strategy and DevOps – Part 3 Up Next Ok, I’ll admit it. It’s another cliche. It’s really not a new concept at all – security experts have been talking about designing security in from the start for decades. So what’s different? Well, first of […]
Can you think of a technology concept that is more hyped than DevOps? We’ve moved past cloud & virtualization, and while not as hyped as Big Data or mobile, everyone on the development and operations side is talking about DevOps, not to mention DevOpsSec. Using several blog posts, I’m going to layout the vision for […]
