Holá from the Cake Project Management team. Another week of 2017 has raced by and brought with it the seventeenth edition of “This Week in #Agile”. Our PM team continues their quest to improve their knowledge, searching the web and devouring your blogs and articles (not literally of course). Here area few of the articles that we gained some insight from and would like to share with you today, along with our learnings on them.
As part of a series of blog posts on Chaos engineering, this blog post introduces the open source library docker-compose-toolkit. Here, we use this library to define a Chaos experiment (using extensible effects) that illustrates the impact that auto-downing can have when an Akka cluster is subjected to network partitioning. The previous post Can Real World Distributed Systems be Proven Correct? motivates and explains the need for performing fault injection on distributed applications. In future posts, we will consider more realistic use cases than considered here - so please stay tuned!
Life here at Cake is not only about project related work but also doing outside of those projects more of what we love - TO CODE! So if you are interested in reading a mildly philosophical and technical blog about our experience with Hackathons and some related tips then please read on. We hope you enjoy reading.
As you can imagine most of the people here at Cake are very passionate about programming and so if we can try something new, have fun and maybe even win something that's definitely time well spent. We have participated in both local public and private company Hackathons, and have been regular participants of Hack Manchester for the past 3 years.
