Building a cloud-friendly application – Jakarta Tech Talks

The days of hand-crafted artisanal servers are long over. Modern web applications need to be able to run on many different servers without code changes. Not just different hosting providers, but different environments on the same hosting provider. Whether you’re using a legacy dev/stage/prod setup or a modern branch-is-environment host, modern hosting imposes some requirements on your application design but also offers a huge potential for new and powerful tools.

Make it faster – Myths about SQL Performance

Many developers don’t pay attention to database performance when implementing new applications. The functionality of the application is important, but the efficiency of the SQL queries is often ignored. The DBA (or the query optimizer) does this job later. If necessary, we can still create some indexes, add hints or adjust some database parameters. And in the Cloud, the Oracle database does everything automatically and autonomously, anyway.

Automatizando testes de integração com Azure DevOps e GitHub Actions

Implementar testes de integração nem sempre é uma tarefa fácil, chegando até mesmo a ser postergada em muitos casos ao se considerar os serviços dos quais uma aplicação pode depender. E as dificuldades só tendem a aumentar quando decidimos executar tais testes de maneira automatizada.

Embora muitos profissionais desconheçam, soluções de automação como Azure DevOps e GitHub Actions contam com ambientes em que inúmeros recursos e ferramentas foram pré-instalados. Podemos ir além nos valendo de containers criados sob medida, emulando sem complicações baseadas de bancos de dados e até mesmo serviços de mensageria. O resultado disso será validações simulando as hipóteses mais próximas daquelas que encontraríamos em produção.
