B. Cameron Gain’s obsession with computers began when he hacked a Space Invaders console to play all day for 25 cents at the local video arcade in the early 1980s. He then started writing code for very elementary games on the family Commodore 64 and programming in BASIC on the high school PC. He has since become a long-time and steadfast Linux advocate and loves to write about IT and tech. His byline has appeared in Wired, PC World, CIO, Technology Review, Popular Science, and Automotive News.

Kubernetes is not everything for everybody, as DevOps teams know. And while Kubernetes can, of course, offer amazing power- and resource-savings and computing-performance advantages, the platform has also seen its share of controversy, such as during the Docker split in 2016.

When Gianluca Arbezzano, now a site reliability engineer (SRE) for InfluxData, first approached Chris Churilo, director of product marketing, over two years ago, what an SRE was and did was a largely nebulous concept for him.”I was looking at myself more as a DevOps person, but I was never a systems administration,” Arbezzano said. “I always wrote code and automated [applications and deployments].”

Pivotal’s Corey Innis’ job function, on paper at least, falls under the traditional category of software developer or engineer. Indeed, their “official” business title is staff software engineer at Pivotal. But instead, Innis says they have claimed another job title that is more reflective of what they actually do. Innis’ true title, they say, is “software craftsperson.”

APIs have certainly evolved beyond the first application programming interfaces (APIs) of the late 1960s to become the focal point of software development today.
But during the past three to four years, APIs have also evolved to become fully integrated with DevOps and front- and back-end development. Among the benefits APIs offer, well-developed APIs serve integral role allowing organizations to realize their business goals more efficiently and rapidly.And APIs continue to evolve, of course. Beerinder Rodey, senior product manager at TIBCO Software who works with the company’s Mashery API management product, discussed APIs’ recent developments with The New Stack’s Joab Jackson, managing editor, at the Cloud Foundry Summit North America in Philadelphia.

Very early in his career as a student, Andrew Jenkins was studying space dust and other payloads for the U.S. Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics as part of a NASA contract. It was there while working on communication protocols “almost from the physical layer” that he began to shift his attention to the software side.
Monitoring, observability, logging and other capabilities that are increasingly essential for software production pipelines today could have already been put to use over 15 years ago when Jenkins was working for NASA. However, at that time, service meshes had yet to be developed — while Kubernetes, microservices and even DevOps were yet to come as well.

Machine learning-aided artificial intelligence (AI) might one day be able to eventually emulate the intelligence of hundreds or even thousands of human brains simultaneously, in such a way that human input would be obsolete throughout the software development cycle. In theory, a single system could not only replace a hundred-member DevOps teams, but assume the roles and tasks performed by hundreds of similar-sized DevOps teams.

As Clive Thompson, a contributing writer for the “New York Times Magazine” and “Wired,” described in this The New Stack Makers podcast and in his book “Coders: The Making of a New Tribe and the Remaking of the World,” you, as a software engineer or coder, are taking part in something directly or indirectly that has a far-reaching impact on the world we live in today. Based on interviews with over 200 coders, he also discusses about how his book puts software development into its historical context and addresses some of the problems in today’s industry, such as gender, racial and sexual orientation biases — and what can be done about it.
