Docker-in-Docker requires privileged mode to function, which is a significant security concern. Docker deamons have root privileges, which makes them a preferred target for attackers. In its earliest releases, Kubernetes offered compatibility with one container runtime: Docker. In the context of GitLab CI/CD jobs that build and publish Docker images to a container registry, docker commands in scripts might seem like an obvious choice.
In this blog post I am experimenting with Helm, the package manager for Kubernetes by packaging codecentric’s Spring Boot Admin for out of the box real-time insights into a suite of Spring Boot Java services deployed to Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).
We’re thrilled to announce our new series of blog posts based on our live Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions! At Trifork, we often host renowned software experts as part of our collaborative initiative with GOTO Conferences. During these sessions, GOTO experts are invited to answer questions on topics related to programming and software. These subjects […]

I’ll tell you all my secrets (but I lie about my past)— Tom Waits – Tango till they’re sore tl;dr We’ve integrated the AWS Parameter Store with Spring Cloud so that it can be used as a secure configuration backend for services deployed to EC2, including ECS. This code has recently been merged in Spring Cloud […]
At home we have a Youless device which can be used to measure energy consumption. You have to mount it to your energy meter so it can monitor energy consumption. The device then provides energy consumption data via a RESTful api. We can use this api to index energy consumption data into Elasticsearch every minute […]
In one of my current projects we’re developing a web application which also has a couple of dozen batch jobs that perform all sort of tasks at particular times. These jobs produce quite a bit of logging output when they’re run, which is important to see what has happened during a job exactly. What we […]
In this post, I’ll share a very simple tip on how to add very simple custom checks of your Android source code to your Jenkins build server, but the tip should be very easily ported to other build servers too. What? Most developers know of Lint checks as something which perform some kind of static […]
