Platform Engineering: What It Is and Why It Matters
As consumer-facing applications continue to evolve, the need for effective platform engineering becomes more important than ever. In today’s fast-paced business landscape, companies must be able to develop, deploy, and maintain their applications quickly and efficiently. Platform engineering plays a vital role in achieving these objectives, providing the tools and processes necessary for building robust, scalable, and secure platforms that can meet the needs of businesses and customers alike. Defining Platform Engineering Platform engineering refers to the processes and practices involved in designing, building, and maintaining the software platforms that power modern businesses. These platforms are the foundation upon which businesses can build their applications, enabling them to quickly and easily develop, deploy, and scale their products and services. At its core, platform engineering involves the use of automation, infrastructure as code, and other modern development practices to create robust, scalable, and secure platforms. These platforms can be used by developers to build applications quickly and efficiently, by creating processes that enable developers to be able to configure and create the infrastructure programmatically. In this article, we will explore the history and evolution of platform engineering and the reasons behind its growing importance in the tech industry. The Pain Points of the Past Before the adve...
We’re all sitting on a computational stockpile that is largely untapped
Did you know that manufacturing electronic devices such as smartphones is an insanely energy-intensive process, accounting for 70–85% of the lifetime carbon footprint of the phone itself? Still, we’re seeing 150 million smartphones discarded every year in the United States alone, amounting to one phone discarded per person every two years. And those phones are not properly discarded or recycled but simply forgotten in drawers and storage units, creating a computational stockpile that is largely untapped. So we’re all sitting on this computational goldmine while damaging the environment with our behavior. Not ideal, right? Processor graveyard Most of these smartphones are just sitting in junk drawers and storage units because most people don’t know about recycling programs or how to use them for other things. To make matters worse, many phones aren’t designed with recyclability in mind, meaning that even when they do find their way into recycling centers, they may still end up being incinerated or landfilled due to their complex internals. This wasted potential is especially troubling now that smartphones have more powerful processors, better ways to connect to other devices, and reliable power sources. These devices could be used for more than just making calls. They could be used to give remote access to medical services, help monitor the environment, or, in our case: decentralized computations for CI/CD jobs. New...
Maximizing Agile Software Development with CI/CD
Agile software development is a popular methodology that has revolutionized the way software products are delivered. It is an iterative, collaborative approach that prioritizes rapid development and delivery in response to changing requirements and customer needs. Agile software development focuses on delivering high-quality products in the shortest amount of time possible and enables teams to respond quickly to customer feedback. However, for the Agile approach to be truly effective, it must be paired with a robust continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline. CI/CD is a software engineering practice that automates the software development process from code integration to deployment. By continuously integrating code changes and automatically deploying them to production, CI/CD helps organizations deliver software faster with greater efficiency and stability. Integrating Agile software development and CI/CD can significantly improve software development processes and deliverables. By combining the flexibility and collaboration of Agile with the automation and efficiency of CI/CD, organizations can achieve a more streamlined and effective software development process. In this post, we will explore the benefits of Agile software development and CI/CD and how organizations can maximize their software development efforts by integrating the two. — Benefits of Agile Software Development. — Faster ti...
Why Web3 Developers Need to Say Goodbye to Web2 Tooling
Reliance on Web2 infrastructures undermines the core principles of Web3. — The Web3 ecosystem is still in its infancy, but it is clear that it will be a game changer. Decentralization is a revolutionary concept with the potential to create a fairer, more secure, and more equitable internet. But the problem is that many Web3 projects are still being built with Web2 technology and infrastructure, which goes against Web3’s basic ideas. Web2 is a business model For more than two decades, Web2 has been the dominant force on the internet. It is a centralized, controlled, and monetized network dominated today by a select few tech companies. These corporations have complete control over your data, the flow of information, and the prices that you pay for access. This often results in the interests of users and developers being misaligned with those of big tech corporations. Additionally, we see exponential growth in data breaches, privacy violations, and malicious attacks. The result? A growing lack of faith in Web2 infrastructure. Web2 is nothing more than a business model for the large tech companies that keep us in a stranglehold. Pricing and availability of services are dictated by them, leaving developers at their mercy. And we’re supposed to settle for high costs, limited access to resources, and decreased innovation. One step at a time We know achieving true decentralization is far easier said than done. It’s not u...
Smoke Out Bugs with Smoke Testing
Getting started with automating smoke tests. — Smoke testing is an integral part of a CI/CD setup and can help you reach your goals more quickly. In this blog post, you’ll learn more about smoke testing and how it may help you find issues in your CI/CD pipeline. We’ll also give you some pointers on how to integrate smoke testing into your process by identifying which features need to be tested, as well as how to design and utilize smoke testing to improve the productivity of your CI/CD pipeline. Even though the term “smoke testing” is not found in the ISO Software and systems engineering — Software Testing it is common practice for any software developer. This testing methodology involves running a basic set of tests to ensure that the most critical functions of a software application are working correctly. It is typically used as a first step in the testing process to quickly identify any major issues that need to be addressed before more comprehensive testing is performed. The term “smoke test” might not be familiar to everyone, but it is guaranteed that software engineers are performing some kind of smoke testing daily. In other circles, it is also known as a “sanity check.” Oftentimes, it is done manually, but parts of these kinds of tests can also be done manually. The purpose of smoke testing is to provide assurance that the most important parts of an application are working as expected and t...
Implementing Test Automation in a CI/CD Pipeline
A CI/CD (Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment) pipeline would be incomplete without test automation. It helps ensure that code updates do not break existing functionality and that new features fulfill quality standards. However, implementing test automation in a CI/CD pipeline can be difficult, particularly for teams new to the process. This blog article will go over some best practices for deploying test automation in a CI/CD pipeline. — Establish your testing strategy - Have a thorough grasp of your project’s testing plan. This may entail defining the proper testing frameworks and tools to utilize, as well as specifying the sorts of tests that must be conducted, such as unit tests, integration tests, and end-to-end tests. Analyze your tests Different approaches might be taken to evaluate your tests. When you keep tabs on your automated tests’ performance over time, you can spot patterns and trends. This can show you which parts of your tests are constantly passing or failing, so you can focus on those. Verifying that all necessary features and sections of your application have been tested by your automated tests requires looking at their coverage. You can then prioritize the creation of new tests for the regions that have not been thoroughly tested yet. Monitor how long your automated tests take to complete, pinpointing the ones eating up too much of your time. This is useful for pinpointing where your...
Why You Should Start with Parallel Testing in Your CI/CD Flow
Parallel testing is a software testing technique that involves running multiple tests at the same time to reduce the overall time required to complete the testing process. When done correctly, running tests in parallel can accelerate the testing process by an order of magnitude and provide feedback on code changes more quickly. To begin with, parallel testing is not the most fundamental idea. Other testing procedures come first and can be utilized as a foundation to parallelize them afterward. Keeping this in mind, it is advantageous to have a broad picture of how you intend to build your tests. It will be easier to navigate the road if you keep in mind that you want to automate and parallelize your testing. So, to begin, let’s look at the what and why of parallel testing. The what and why of parallel testing The name does speak for itself in this case. But before we get there, it is worthwhile to think about what the objective of CICD is. It’s to be able to quickly and efficiently integrate and deploy your codebase to production, especially when working with a large team of software contributors. Let’s imagine the following scenario: You’ve assembled a sizeable team of software engineers working on a large codebase. Fortunately, you have a version control system in place, such as Git, where you can keep track of all the changes that are made to the codebase, including every time a feature gets developed, a bug gets ...
Nosana: A Year in Review
We’re taking a moment to look back and appreciate how far we’ve come before setting our sights on the epic adventure that lies ahead.. — It’s impossible to convey the magnitude of this year’s progress in a single blog post. 2022 represents a year full of learning and development for the Nosana Network. A year and a half ago, the Nosana Network was just a small group of developers working together towards launching the Nosana CI/CD platform and building open-source tools and guidelines for the creation and managing of distributed pipelines. The year 2022 is significant because it is the year in which Nosana revealed its intention to become the first decentralized compute platform for CI/CD and getting those plans into motion. After a successful launch, we started building out our CI platform. Right now, we’re proud to say that we have a functioning peer-to-peer system where CI jobs can run and be distributed across a network of nodes. And as with any open-source project, Nosana can only thrive with a thriving community. We saw a large increase in community members upon our successful token launch, and are thankful for the members who have continued their enthusiasm for our development during the first phase of our testnet as well as the launch of our staking program and subsequent NFT mint. As you might expect, we couldn’t be more thrilled to extend a hearty welcome to all newcomers. This year, our top prio...
What is CI/CD?
CI/CD stands for Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. Today, it also stands for Continuous Deployment. It is a set of practices that allow you to continuously test, build, and deploy your code. Software developers live and breathe version control systems like Git. They use them to track changes to their code and to collaborate with their team members. This led to the first practice of CI/CD: Continuous Integration. Continuous Integration is the practice of integrating code changes into a shared repository as often as possible. This allows developers to catch bugs early, and to collaborate more efficiently. The second practice of CI/CD is Continuous Delivery. As mentioned before, it also means Continuous Deployment. Continuous Deployment is the practice of automatically deploying your code to production. This allows you to deploy your code as soon as it is ready, and to deliver value to your users as soon as possible. Nosana is a distributed CI/CD environment, and we leave the deployment keys safely in the hands of the ones responsible for the software. This discussion will therefore focus on the CI/C-Delivery mostly. Continuous Delivery is the practice of building and deploying your code to production. This allows us to test our code in a production-like environment, and to catch bugs before they reach our users. Usually deploying to production is a manual process, but with Continuous Deployment, we can automate thi...
Our Updated Roadmap
Nosana’s Development is Steadily Progressing. — — A quick re-cap of the developments and a new roadmap reveal - We can all agree that the past few months have been exciting for both the team and our community. Our recent progress has been swift, and you can expect the same momentum going forward. Before we get into the updated roadmap, let’s briefly go over just some of the things that we’ve accomplished so far. Staking & Rewards Our staking and rewards system passed its third-party audit, was deployed, and has been a great success. Users are able to stake NOS tokens for a variable amount of time. A user stake has two values attached to it: Staked NOS and xNOS. The staked NOS represents the number of tokens that the vault actually holds for the user that can be slashed or unstaked, while xNOS is a value indicating a user’s rank for purposes like giveaways and voting. One of the primary advantages of staking is the ability to receive token rewards. The reward pool is derived from future network usage in the form of network fees. Because the network is still in its early stages, the current rewards pool is derived from the mining pool. The Nosana Network has reserved 20 million tokens for network participants, with a portion of these being released daily into the reward pool during the first year. The rewards system also gives stakers chances to win mint passes for our NFT drops. Nosana Application L...
