Dev Quest

Alec fills in for Dustin this episode and talks with Solomon Gifford from BlackMesh about the wild world of modern CI/CD providers, SecDevOps, and the quest to put the "dev" back in "DevOps".

Show Notes

A few weeks ago Solomon Gifford from BlackMesh and the Lando team collaborated on a guide to modern CI/CD providers to help developers take the next step in their CI/CD adventurers. This episode we follow-up on that article. A few things to listen for in our conversation...
  • From Jenkins to GitLab: the three epochs of CI/CD technology.
  • Document. Standardize. Automate.
  • What is the authorization boundary?
  • How security concerns are "shifting left" toward the developer.
  • Can CI/CD save developers from increasing operational burdens?

You can reach out to Solomon on the BlackMesh website or tweet @sgifford.
