Java Pub House

Yeah! so we have been working with the cloud for a while, terms like K8s, EC2, Route53, BlobData, CLI has been swinged around... and is a little mysterious, and sometimes looks like a black box where you just click buttons, add things, type commands, until it finally something good happens. But if something bad happens, we tend not to have the slightest idea on why!

Never fear, on this episode of PubHouse we start from the very beginning on describing (And dismantling) what the "Cloud" really is... Starting on how we got there, what are the different "components" of most clouds, and how to reason about them.

This way, the next time something unpredictable happens, you will know exactly where to start troubleshooting and how to navigate this space! This is the first episode of a series (probably a series of 2) on Cloud technologies. So if you never been exposed to the cloud and you're curious, or even if you've been working on it but everything sounds mysterious, then dive in!

Ok, so is time to talk about something secretive! Like API Passwords, Auth tokens, or keys... these are things that we want to have as a Secret within our microservice. And yeah, adding them into your source code is a big no-no

Here we cover the dos (and dont's) of secret management, what are the benefits and drawbacks of the different solutions and we explore some of our favorite open source (and Cloud tools) for keeping secrets. We answer some important questions on how to effectively store and manage these secrets (the short answer is don't try to do it yourself!), and end up with the list of best practices for it.

If you are building a non-trivial (or interesting) web service, this is a must-listen episode!
