Today is a good day! Last night we had our final full-length meeting with the whole team and discussed open points. You can feel the tension in the air when the team gathers around the location plans debating issues like running orders, material lists, and budget proposals. It’s a truly mesmerizing moment to see our ideas come alive.
As we continue to use our Vagrant Setup at Amazee Labs for our Projects, we face the problem that the git configuration is not added to the box itself, which leads to many commits from “vagrant@localhost” which makes my inner DevOps-me very angry.
Vagrant has a built-in “file” provisioner, which I want to run if a file is present on the host machine. After some playing around, I found issue 3021 on Github and got the information needed to spot the Home Directory (yes, by using the environment variable of the user) and just copied the config to the box.
config.vm.provision :file, source: '~/.gitconfig', destination: '/home/vagrant/.gitconfig' if File.exists?(ENV['HOME'] + '/.gitconfig')
Currently, sitting in the 22nd story at Time Square in New York and working on the DevOps track for DrupalCon Amsterdam is just an addition to the good things that happen this year!
So what is my role with DrupalCon Amsterdam?
I chair the DevOps Track together with my fellow co-chair, Kris Buytaert. This means we care about the sessions which will be submitted to the Track and we also try to get a diversity of good talks into our Track.
The call is on you now!
Are you passionate about sharing your experiences with the DevOps Culture? Did you achieve perfect testing results by automating everything so your biggest question you think about is if you should use rather vim or emacs?
Yesterday evening I talked about logging with the ELK Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) and how you can put those tools to work.
We gathered in the rooms of Meteotest Bern to learn about the Logging Setup we use at Amazee Labs and the possibilities the new tools give you.
Visualization > Plaintext
During the talk I covered also topics of visualizing the Data that is logged. I emphasized the fact that a visual representation of the data gives you a better feeling and understanding how good you are doing.
Vor 2570 Tagen schrieb jemand folgenden Kommentar zu einem Startup das gerade ihr Minimalprodukt vorstellte:
The only problem is that you have to install something. See, it’s not the same as USB drive. Most corporate laptops are locked and you can’t install anything on them. That’s gonna be the problem. Also, another point where your USB comparison fails is that USB works in places where you don’t have internet access.
Unterdessen zählt Dropbox eine grosse Anzahl Kunden, beendete die “USB-Stick” Ära und hat gestern auch tatkräftig akquiriert (Hackpad, Loom).
Zum Glück gibt man den negativen Kommentaren nicht immer so viel Gewicht.
