Welcome to this week's edition of the news, blog posts and articles about continuous integration / deployment and software development in general that we found interesting!
- eBay engineering describes the evolution of eBay's CI system. eBay started off with an individual CI/Jenkins Master setup for each dev. eBay used a dedicated VM for each developer (each Jenkins instance had a dedicated VM). This got inefficient pretty fast resulting in underutilized VMs as well as too many VMs in general. Read about eBay's CI solution and how they arrived at it.
- We discovered a great series of interviews about Docker - how Docker got started and how Docker fits into the current devops landscape. Fascinating reading!
- We read about how devops got its name.
- And the WSJ posted about why devops works for startups, not so much for enterprise. More on that later!
