Operations is more than just Systems Administration

On 2015-12-27

I think one of the patterns of the last few years has been the democratization of systems administration, especially for web applications. Whether that's Heroku or Docker, or Chef or Puppet, more and more traditional developers are doing work that would have been somebody else's problem only a few years ago. But running in parallel to that thread is another less positive trend, that of conflating operations with just systems administation. The story seems to go that now we know Ansible (or some other tool) we just need developers to run the show.

In this post I'm going to try and introduce some of the other operational disciplines, especially for developers who maybe have come to operations via the above resurgence in infrastructure tooling over the past few years.

Note that this post has a slight bias towards more normal organisations. That is to say if you're in a 5 person software startup you probably don't have operational problems to worry too much about yet. I'm also not playing down the practice of systems administration, most experienced sysadmins I know are also quite rounded operations pros as well.

The OPM Data Breach And Threat Of Compromised Nuclear Data

By support@scriptrock.com (ScriptRock) on 2015-12-28

The OPM Data Breach And Threat Of Compromised Nuclear Data

The figures are staggering: 21.5 million records containing social security numbers, names, places of birth, addresses, fingerprints, and other highly sensitive personal data—stolen by cyber attackers. And details continue to emerge around U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) compromise that reveal the true scope of damage caused by the breach: on Christmas Eve, the National Nuclear Security Administration confirmed the OPM breach affected some employees at the Pantex Plant—the United States' only nuclear weapons assembly and disassembly facility. What are the risks and implications of employee data at the highly sensitive nuclear facility falling into the wrong hands?

Only one MessageDialog may be displayed

By Carlos Ble on 2015-12-28

Software Development

On Windows 8, a call to "await aMessageDialog.ShowAsync()" can only be made once, otherwise System.UnauthorizedAccessException will be thrown (E_ACCESSDENIED 80070005). This is a helper method to display dialogs although it's not thread-safe. It's inspired on StackOverflow answers:  public static class DialogDisplayer { private static IAsyncOperation<IUICommand> currentlyShownDialog;  public static async Task TryToShowDialog(MessageDialog messageDialog){ try{ RequestPreviousDialogCancelation(); await […]

What I learned in 2015

On 2015-12-31

So this is the last day of 2015. Time do a little recap. A lot of things happened this year and I am glad I can say I learned a lot! Actually I would say experience is this one thing you will profit the most of. It is something that no one can take away from you and something you cannot just learn. You have to earn it while pushing yourself to the limits every day out there in our digital world. But there are also so many little things you learn which help you to become a better programmer. Today I'd like to share with you some of my learning in 2015.

PHP has never been so good

I am proud to be a PHP developer!

It was an amazing year as a PHP programmer. All over the year we heard more and more about great features of the new version. With the release of PHP7 in December the language has made a huge step forward and I am happy to be a PHP programmer these days. There were times when I had doubts about the future of PHP and when I thought about changing my main language. These days are over. PHP finally is a modern language and I am glad to work with it every day.

Top 10 Data Breaches Of 2015—A New Year's Day Retrospective

2015 may have come and gone, but the effects of last year's data breaches are far-reaching—for both millions of consumers and internet users as well as the companies and organizations whose systems were breached. Such events are no less devastating in terms of brand damage, and 2016 will undoubtedly bring forth a heightened collective security awareness in both organizations as well as consumers.

2015, retrospectiva

Como otros años, hoy voy a hacer una retrospectiva de lo que ha sido para mi el 2015, indicando los que, a mi parecer, han sido los hechos más relevantes:

1. He trabajado con un formidable equipo en el CRIF de las Acacias. Me ha enriquecido, no solo como profesional si no también como persona. Desde aquí un fuerte abrazo para Víctor, Ana, Mariluz, Jorge, Mayte, Esteban y Guadalupe.

2. He co-organizado 8 hackathones con HackathonLovers. Con ello hemos creado comunidad y conseguido que esta sea conocida.
