Daily Wrap Up – January 6, 2023 (#004)

Happy Friday! Check out a handful of the best things I read today.

[blog] Build Containers Without a Dockerfile. I’m no good at writing Dockerfiles—maybe I should just use large language model AI for it?—so I like tools that make the container image generation invisible. If you’re a .NET dev, you can skip Dockerfile creation now. Caveats apply!

[blog] Confluent + Immerok: Cloud Native Kafka Meets Cloud Native Flink. The Confluent gang—they’re the stewards of Apache Kafka—are betting on Flink as a stream processing project. Looks like they’re going big.

[article] What Trouble Awaits Cloud Native Security in 2023? “Security” is such a broad topic, that it’s almost meaningless to say you’re focusing on “security in 2023.” Access control? Data encryption? Physical security? The list goes on. This piece calls out a few areas of focus.

[blog] API Management is About More Than Technology. I’ll admit that I’ve never been particularly excited about API management, but some people are, and want tech that solves their problems. This post calls out a few things that a good API solution does for you.

[article] C++ wins programming language of the year award. Including this, because it was a reminder to me that the buzziest and most talked about tech is often not the thing everyone is actually using.

[article] Blue-Green Deployment From the Trenches. Every good solution creates new problems, right? So if you’ve gotten better at shipping software without downtime by doing things like blue/green deployments, now you have problems around handling breaking changes. Good article here.

[article] Where Is Tech Going in 2023? I buy these predictions as they seem reasonable to me, even if it happens later than 2023.
