Automated rollbacks and release orchestration on CircleCI

CircleCI releases gives your development team greater confidence by bringing visibility, control and risk mitigation to the deploy and release process. In this video, we walk you through a typical deployment workflow to Kubernetes highlighting the powerful release orchestration capabilities designed to extend our platform into your staging and deployment environments including release and environment tracking, canary rollouts, and easy rollbacks directly from the CircleCI UI.

What is OSS?

Open source software (OSS) is a type of software with source code that can be published, reused, modified, and redistributed free of charge. This approach to building, maintaining, and distributing software has benefits for businesses and end users alike. In this article, you will learn what OSS is, its benefits for the software community, and the differences between different open source licenses.

What is Mean Time to Repair (MTTR)?

Mean time to repair (MTTR) is a metric used to measure the average time required to diagnose and fix a malfunctioning system or component, ensuring it returns to full operational status. In software development, downtime halts user access and disrupts operations, leading to customer dissatisfaction and financial losses. In manufacturing, it slows production, affecting supply chains and profitability. In healthcare, downtime can compromise patient care and safety.

What is a DevOps engineer? A look inside the role

DevOps engineers play a vital role in modern software organizations, helping to bridge the gap between software development and IT operations. DevOps is a cultural and technical approach that emphasizes collaboration, automation, and continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD). DevOps engineers are responsible for implementing and supporting these practices to improve efficiency, enhance software quality, and accelerate delivery times.

Control multi-regional infrastructure in a monorepo with CircleCI

How can your organization leverage continuous integration (CI) to manage your infrastructure at scale in a reliable, secure, and repeatable fashion? If you are maintaining multiple projects, the monorepo strategy can be a useful approach that allows for a unified build and CI process and makes it easier to enforce coding standards and organizational practices. It can also help DevOps and platform teams streamline dependency management to reduce conflicts and compatibility issues.
