Today’s cloud automation goes far beyond provisioning servers. Let’s apply architecture models to the latest trends.
Cloud automation isn’t just about infrastructure anymore. This also affects automation language design.
Domain-driven design very much applies to technical domains. Let’s try it on event-driven cloud systems to see why I am such a big fan of object-oriented automation languages.
As the complexity of our platforms increases, we keep looking for better abstractions. Cloud compilers might help, but only if they include one key feature: the stack trace
Loose coupling is an essential property of fine-grained, event-driven systems. However, cloud resources that decouple event producers and consumers incur a run-time cost. How to weigh the trade-offs?
When working for a product company, there’s no better place than working on product.
Whether architects must code or not has been much debated. Why not try debugging?
No one can transform an organization from the outside. But on the inside you’re bound by legacy rules. Catch-22?
You can make transformation lemonade from organizational lemons–sweetened up with the right dose of creativity.
Cloud automation using object-oriented languages gives us the power of abstraction. But those abstractions aren’t easy to come by.
