Can you believe it’s already Wednesday? And we all know what that means: you can catch posts written by our authors every week, right here. Read more about what they’ve been contemplating below.

Deployment Planning: Everything You Need for Success

The key to success for every enterprise project is a well-thought-out plan. One of the biggest mistakes that most teams make is having practices in place that lead to last-minute scrambling. So, to ensure smooth deployment, a step-by-step process for bringing a project’s final stage into production is a must. This is called a deployment plan. Learn more about deployment plans from Arnab Chowdhury on Plutora’s blog.

DevOps and TEM Go Hand in Glove

Enterprises are eager to adopt the practice but their tools often lag behind DevOps practices. This is a bit like walking out into the winter cold with bare hands and being overwhelmed by Mother Nature’s bitter force. Like hands and gloves, DevOps and test environment management (TEM) are a practical pair. Mark Henke can tell you more on Enov8’s blog.

C# Inheritance: A Complete but Gentle Introduction

Time for another dive into a concept of the C# language. Carlos Schults is here to fill you in on inheritance, a concept that will make us analyze the object-oriented side of C#. Head over to SubMain’s blog, and by the end of the post, you’ll have a solid working knowledge, upon which you can keep building more and more.

Equality in Java: Operators, Methods, and What to Use When

Equality is an essential concept when programming, not only in Java but in pretty much all programming languages. Unfortunately, dealing with equality can often be tricky, despite being such a vital part of everyday coding. Equality in Java, specifically, can be quite confusing, for beginners and more experienced developers alike. But worry not. Carlos Schults can help you out by simplifying this and making it less overwhelming for you on Stackify’s blog.

Cloud computing is constantly evolving, from bare-metal to container technologies. The latest trend in this process is the serverless (Function as a Service, or FaaS) computing model. If you’re not sure what serverless architecture is, you’ve come to the right place. Read on to learn what serverless architecture is, when it makes sense, and when it doesn’t. Learn more from Samuel James at Scalyr’s blog.

Log Management With ELK and Why You Should Care

Sometimes, small things can cause big problems. That’s the case with microservices. You know the benefits of moving from a monolithic architecture to a microservices architecture. They include more flexibility and faster deployments. This is great until you remember all the logging you were doing with your monolithic app. You need a log management tool that can help you collect and store this data from all these services. This is where the Elastic Stack comes in to save your day, and Jean Tunis explains on ASPE’s blog.

We also updated a post on Java logging this week. You know how to get started with C# logging as quickly as possible.  But what if you’re more of a Java guy or gal? Well, then Carlos Schults has got your back, too: his post for Scalyr will get you up to speed with logging using C#’s older cousin, Java. Read more here.
