MerLoc - Local Debugging for Serverless Applications: Why and How

Offering quick deployment, scalability, and a broad range of supported tools, serverless applications are becoming increasingly popular. Flexible pay-as-you-go payment plans offered by most cloud services help minimize costs, adding a financial incentive as the cherry on top of the developer’s cake. But as we know, software engineering is a game of trade-offs, and serverless architectures come with their own challenges.


Debugging in Elixir and Erlang: An Introduction

Welcome to part one of this two-part series on debugging in Elixir and Erlang. In this post, we'll use several different tools and techniques to debug Elixir code. First, we'll get to know the demo project I created to showcase certain tools: dist_messenger. It's an Elixir project of a distributed messaging system that can be used directly on IEx. It allows users in different nodes to send and receive messages to each other.


Configuring & Debugging a Multibranch Kubernetes-Native Pipeline with Argo

We always want to use the best of the best when it comes to Kubernetes tooling. We keep up with the latest projects, download them when ready to try them out, and see where they could fit in our development work here at Rookout. As part of our migration to Kubernetes native tools, our most important goal is to make it seamless and smooth so our developers will stay agile, fast, and happy. For some of that migration, we’ve faced some challenges, particularly with pipelines.

Ruby & JVM A JRuby Love Story by Yarden Laifenfeld

Does the language have popular and well maintained frameworks that match our specific needs? Do we care more about readability or performance?
