We’re talking with Gerhard Lazu, our resident SRE, ops, and infrastructure expert about the evolution of Changelog’s infrastructure, what’s new in 2020, and what we’re planning for in 2021. The most notable change? We’re now running on Linode Kubernetes Engine (LKE)! We even test the resilience of this new infrastructure by purposefully taking the site down. That’s near the end, so don’t miss it!
In this post I share the latest 2020 and beyond details for changelog.com’s infrastructure.
Why Kubernetes? How is Kubernetes simpler than what we had before? What was our journey to running production on Kubernetes? What worked well? What could have been better? What comes next for changelog.com? Read this post and listen to episode #419 to learn all the details.
Gerhard is back for part two of our interviews at KubeCon 2019. Join him as he goes deep on Prometheus with Björn Rabenstein, Ben Kochie, and Frederic Branczyk… Grafana with Tom Wilkie and Ed Welch… and Crossplane with Jared Watts, Marques Johansson, and Dan Mangum.
Don’t miss part one with Bryan Liles, Priyanka Sharma, Natasha Woods, & Alexis Richardson.
Changelog’s resident infrastructure expert Gerhard Lazu is on location at KubeCon 2019. This is part one of a two-part series from the world’s largest open source conference. In this episode you’ll hear from event co-chair Bryan Liles, Priyanka Sharma and Natasha Woods from GitLab, and Alexis Richardson from Weaveworks.
Stay tuned for part two’s deep dives in to Prometheus, Grafana, and Crossplane.
On the benefits of speedy software, and how it affects user perception of engineering quality and overall usability.
It’s easy to write an essay about fast software. It’s difficult to make fast software. But when it’s made, we’re all grateful.
We’re talking with Gerhard Lazu, our resident ops and infrastructure expert, about the setup we’ve rolled out for 2019. Late 2016 we relaunched Changelog.com as a new Phoenix/Elixir application and that included a brand new infrastructure and deployment process. 2019’s infrastructure update includes Linode, CoreOS, Docker, CircleCI, Rollbar, Fastly, Netdata, and more — and we talk through all the details on this show.
The new changelog.com setup for 2019 is packed with exciting features that are too good to keep to ourselves. Since the infrastructure code is already public and has been running changelog.com for a few months now, the value that we are sharing is proven to us.
Today, we are open-sourcing the code behind Changelog’s infrastructure as is, and are giving you the opportunity to influence the way we continue investing our time.
This week we take you behind the scenes of the new infrastructure for Changelog.com and talk with Gerhard Lazu. We relaunched the new brand and site for Changelog on Phoenix/Elixir in October of 2016 and we needed a better way to reliably host and deploy the site. That’s where Gerhard came in. We cover all the details and decisions in this show.
