As browser security improves, many applications have implemented CORS headers to protect against unauthorized access. I’m working on a Chrome extension that needs to check if a certain URL is present on GitHub, before it opens the URL in a new tab. Let’s explore what we can do.
We’re currently in the business of moving from Mesos/Marathon to Kubernetes. As we have a microservices environment we can move service by service. We have multiple clusters running, so I need to track which teams have which services (still) running on Mesos/Marathon.
Let’s see if we can lift the data out of the system using the Marathon API, JQ and cURL.
At Wehkamp, we use the Hubot Grafana project to make our Grafana dashboard available in Slack. It mainly helps our standby team to make quick assessments on what’s going on with our website. Last year, we saw we could not upgrade the package from 2.5.2 to 3.0.1, because slugs could not be used anymore. But we use slugs and… quite heavily! So we did not upgrade our Grafana v7… until we got hit by the input field bug. We decided to see what we could do to bring our slug feature back to our ChatOps bot!
Anneke Keller (CTO), Koen Roumen (Head of Platfom) and me did a talk on DevOpsDays Eindhoven 2022: A true story on how we learned how to handle the immense web traffic caused by a successful influencer campaign. How we built a platform with Karpenter and Keda for rapid and massive auto-scaling and the effects this had on our platform.
At Wehkamp we ❤️ Slack! Seriously, in order to improve our efficiency, we’ve connected many of our applications, alerts and dashboards to Slack channels. But, as with all things, there is a right way and a wrong way of integrating a webhook at enterprise level.
Let’s explore how easy it is to create an application.
Chris Vahl (Cloud Engineer) and me did a talk on Full Stack Live #2 (Orange Talent: At Wehkamp we did a very successful influencer campaign, but it didn’t go well for our website. In this session we discuss what happened and how we mitigated our problems. We also show how we want to move forward using Kubernetes, Karpenter and Keda, to create a platform that scales better. This session is in Dutch.
