Matt and I are out in Los Angeles this week for KubeCon 2021 this week. At the GitOpsCon event Tuesday we were excited to attend this Kubernetes session: GitOps in the Real World: Opportunities for Developer Experience Improvement
APIOps is the complete end-to-end automation of the API lifecycle, combining DevOps and GitOps. With APIOps, you can enhance your productivity through the reuse of APIs. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through how to:
As organizations adopt a microservices architecture, API gateway usage has increased. Kong Gateway is one of the promising API gateways in the market. It has both OSS and enterprise support, releases multiple features and is easy to use. Kong Admin API helps administrators configure the system easily, but it’s still error-prone. That’s because the user has to hit many curl calls for creating all the configs. When numerous folks are managing the system, this becomes difficult.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that the culture change side of any technology transformation program is the hardest and slowest part to get right. If you cannot efficiently operationalize a technology investment, that investment is wasted. This is no different in the world of APIs and microservices, where every service is designed to support a change to a digital-first culture. APIOps makes this change possible.
Infrastructure as code has been an important practice of DevOps for years. Anyone running an Apache Kafka data infrastructure and running on Kubernetes, the chances are you’ve probably nailed defining your infrastructure this way. If you’re running on Kubernetes, you’re likely using operators as part of your CI/CD toolchain to automate your deployments.
Kong’s fast, lightweight and scalable API management solution helps improve developer productivity by automating the delivery of API management. One way Kong automates API management is through a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) process by leveraging Kong’s decK (declarative configuration for Kong) and GitHub Actions. Kong’s decK provides a command line interface (CLI) to manage Kong in a declarative way.
