Staging Changes to cf-release

This is the final post in our CI pipeline series. This time, we talk about how the pipeline stages loggregator-related changes to cf-release to other cf-release consumers (e.g. other teams) in a minimal-impact way. We also show how the pipeline uses git to rebase and merge the various repositories and branches that flow into it.

An Overview of Loggregator CI Pipelines

Cloud Foundry at Pivotal recently set up new continuous integration pipelines for loggregator, using Thoughtworks’ Go (not to be confused with Go, the programming language.) This is the first in a planned series of related blog posts; its intention is to provide an initial overview of our pipelines.

A Possible Solution For Managing External Dependencies in Go

Finally getting the chance to dive into Go has been an absolutely amazing experience.  While the language has been a pleasure to work with my pair hit two pain points that I am sure most new Go-phers will run into:

Code Organization Remote Dependency Management

A complete beginner to the language will likely spend a majority of their first few hours with Go figuring out how to properly setup a $GOPATH and how the directory tree should be organized (reading many conflicting articles along the way).

SAP HANA Service Broker Contributed to the Cloud Foundry Incubator

Service brokers are what make this provisioning and binding happen with ease, and today we are delighted to report that Cloud Foundry partner, SAP, has open sourced a new Cloud Foundry service broker for their SAP HANA database. To round out a very compelling three-way partnership, Swisscom have deployed SAP HANA DB, Cloud Foundry and the new service broker to their infrastructure; Cloud Foundry brings the elastic runtime, SAP brings the service and Swisscom is the service provider – wholesome goodness! And finally, to exercise the service broker, Pivotal worked with another partner, Accenture, to migrate the Spring Trader (dare I say “legacy”?) application to this environment.

Announcing Cloud Foundry cf v6

You can find our new Cloud Foundry CLI, written in Go on github.

A complete rewrite, and yes, we changed things

We hadn’t been happy with the Ruby CLI for a while. We had three big problems: it was hard to test drive, it was hard to understand, it was hard to make changes.

1 more reason to use MDPress – GitHub Pages

Yesterday I found another reason to love working with MDPress for creating presentations.

MDPress is an open source tool that generates HTML presentations from Markdown content. It’s great for someone who works on the command line all day, and who enjoys the conveniences of version control.

Domains and IP Addresses Reserved for Documentation – and Why You Should Use Them

Earlier in my programming days, my go-to example would have been foo.com. Well, not always. If we had any inside jokes on the team, I might put something clever in there for fun. On the Cloud Foundry backend team, one of our current inside jokes includes a picture of Bob Ross in the free space on one of our CI boards, so maybe in that case I would have gone with bobross.com or paintingclouds.com, just for fun, if I needed a fake URL for a test.

Installing Cloud Foundry on Vagrant

This is a guest blog post by Altoros, a software development firm specializing in PaaS enablement and integration services around Hadoop and NoSQL.

Cloud Foundry is by default a highly distributed multi-tenant platform that is usually deployed at scale (>40 nodes) on top of existing virtualized infrastructure (e.g., VMware vSphere or vCloud, Amazon AWS or OpenStack).

Coding while deploying with Git Deployment Directories

Two tenets of Pivotal are continuous integration and coding if you’re in front of a computer.  These goals can conflict when you’ve just wrapped up a story and are about to push to a staging environment – while your final tests and deploy are running, you can’t modify your Git working tree.
