1. From NoOps to AllOps

    I have really enjoyed Micah’s recent posts, Embracing NoOps and Are you really ready for serverless?. We share a firm belief that all code is a liability, and that includes “infrastructure as code” code.

  3. Downloading Large Heroku Postgres Backups

    Easily one of my favorite things about developing apps with Heroku is its bevy of console commands that make it easy to manage Postgres databases. Recently, however, as one of my apps crossed the threshold from a small “hobby” tier database to a larger “standard” database, the heroku CLI started warning me that several of my favorite commands could risk degrading the database’s performance and its availability to my production application.

  4. Tips for hand-rolling your own deployment pipeline

    When it comes to deploying your application, we’ve been advocating for a NoOps philosophy for some time now.

  5. Are you really ready for serverless?

  6. Embracing NoOps

    In The Olden Days™ of web development, a single FTP server and a bash script were all that was necessary to deploy and serve an application. If it worked on your machine, it was good enough for the rest of the connected world.
