  • What I learned at Gitlab that I don't want to forget
    Give for CI/CD a try, you'll love it! - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • CircleCI Layoffs
    Even that niche has better competitors, I think. I haven't used on-prem CCI, but I used hosted CCI for several years and when my team switched to it was a huge breath of fresh air. I think BuildKite is the only CI system I've used I thought was actually worth paying for, and I bet it works out cheaper than self-hosted CCI in most cases as well. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago

    At Redpanda, we want to always provide an experience that is fast, simple, and productive for developers. That applies to our own team of engineers, too.

  • Run e2e tests 10x faster using firecracker VMs
    A few issues I have with this blog post: 1. It doesn't show off the unique capabilities of firecracker very well. 2. The comparison not very fair fair. 2a. GitHub Action is run without any caching, just by adding 2 lines to your build-push-action, "cache-from: type=gha, cache-to: type=gha,mode=max" you can make it a lot faster. 2b. ~1m20s of the time is just "VM start". GitHub Actions has had a rough time... - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago
  • Migrating Your Open Source Builds Off Of Travis CI
    A better option, if you want to run the builds on your own hardware is to look at something like Buildkite or GitLab CI. - Source: / over 2 years ago
  • Who did what?!? Keep an eye on changes with PagerDuty Change Events and Buildkite
    One of the integrations that sends Change Events to PagerDuty is Buildkite. Buildkite is a continuous integration pipeline that allows you to notify PagerDuty with just the information you want to know. Conditional rules allow you to send only what matters. - Source: / over 2 years ago
  • What CI tool should I go with?
    We've been extremely happy with Buildkite. While it doesn't host the control plane in your infrastructure, the builders get hosted in your infrastructure so you have control of how much access they have to the rest of your stuff. Source: over 2 years ago
