Context Episode 97 Continuous Documentation

This week, on The New Stack Context podcast we discuss ways of improving continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) systems, with TNS London correspondent Jennifer Riggins.

TNS likes to choose an editorial theme for each month — a high-level topic that we want to learn more about and help our readers and listeners understand better. And this month we were focused on CI/CD. More specifically, we have seen CI and CD practices themselves reach a higher level of adoption and maturity among teams that work at scale, we are starting to see continuous everything. Continuous delivery, continuous verification or testing, continuous security.

So we wanted to get beyond the basics of DevOps tools and practices to some of the emerging trends and advanced practices that help experienced DevOps teams uplevel CI/CD. So we spoke to Riggins about how teams are implementing continuous documentation and why this needs to be the next “continuous” practice your team should adopt. Then we talk about the importance of cultural fit as well — Why CI/CD is not just about the technology and the tools, but about finding the right reams as well

Then later in the show, TNS publisher Alex Williams and TNS managing editor Joab Jackson discuss some of the top news and podcasts from the week. We discuss why the next big thing after microservices might be event-driven architecture. We also chat about the growing interest in WebAssembly for use within service meshes, as well as Google’s BeyondProd, an architecture for securing microservices. Finally, we gab some about Janakiram MSV’s epic four-part series on the evolution of Amazon Web Services’ Fargate (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4).
