Event stream processing is a concept often used in the field of IT. For example, take a system that continuously creates data. Each data point in that system represents an event. A continuous stream of those data points, or events, is referred to as an event stream. Developers commonly refer to event streams as data streams though, because event streams consist of continuous data points. So, now that we understand event streams, what is event stream processing?

Release Train Engineer in SAFe: The Role and Responsibilities

Driving product development isn’t an easy task. But when you use proper frameworks and approaches, the task could become much easier for you. Some of the most common frameworks in use today are DevOps and agile. And as development gets more complex, these frameworks are also being upgraded to become better. For instance, DevOps evolved to DevSecOps, and agile evolved to SAFe. Every person in the development process plays an important role to get the best product as an outcome. Release train engineers (RTEs) are a crucial part of SAFe, and without whom SAFe is incomplete. But what makes them so important? Find out more about SAFe from Omkar Hiremath on Plutora’s blog.

What Is a Linter? Here’s a Definition and Quick-Start Guide

We also updated a few posts, like this one on Linter. What is a linter? In short, a linter is a tool to help you improve your code. The concept of linter isn’t exclusive to JavaScript. Still, the majority of people trying to learn about linters are interested in the ones that target JavaScript (or, more generally, dynamically-typed languages.) Find out more about Linter on Testim’s blog.

We also updated a post on controllability. Today I’m going to explain why controllability is vital in your production systems and why having observable systems is critical. Controllability is a corollary concept related to observability from the control systems theory. Nowadays, people talk a lot about observability in operations and production systems. But these terms have been applied to software testing for a few years now. Find out more about controllability on Scalyr’s blog.
