Howto Add Gpg to Github
6 minutes

The main security issue in the modern world is identification. How can we be sure that the person we are corresponding with or exchanging files with is really who they claim to be? How can we be sure that the files we receive have not been altered along the way? How can we be sure that the files we receive were actually sent by the person who sent them?

These questions are solved by signing the data being transmitted. A signature is some information that is generated using a private key and can be verified using a public key. If the signature is correct, then the data has not been altered in transit and it was sent by the person who sent and signed it.

Howto Create VPC With Ansible
8 minutes

Once again, I come across the situation where our infrastructure becomes a mess, and we migrate everything to Terraform, and in the latest iteration, to AWS CDK. But then the real mess begins. Eventually, everyone is afraid to make any changes, fearing that something might break, and as a result, nothing gets changed. The snowball keeps growing and becomes increasingly unmanageable. At some point, I got tired of it all and decided that we need to bring order, but in the least painful way for the developers.

We decided to go back to Ansible for automating small tasks needed to manage our infrastructure. In this case, the fear of causing harm was much less, and the code became more readable and understandable. Overall, I enjoyed it. So I decided to share my experience with you in creating such small playbooks for managing our infrastructure. In this article, we will create a VPC using Ansible.

Howto Pass Build Info into Docker

When we build a Docker image of our application, we already know which version of the application will be in it. But often we don’t bother passing this information inside the container. Especially when it comes to web applications. However, this can be useful. For example, for error monitoring, it will definitely be helpful to know which version of the application crashed and when it was built.

In this article, I’ll explain how to pass information about the application version inside the container. This applies to applications in Go as well as web applications in Node.js. I’ll also show how to use this information inside the container.

One of the important skills that a programmer should possess is the ability to estimate task completion times. Estimating work durations plays a key role in project planning, as well as ensuring the realism of goals and commitments to managers, colleagues, and users. However, there are often misunderstandings regarding the concepts of estimation and commitment, and their differences are not always clear. I have experienced both sides of this issue and know firsthand how harmful it can be to a project. Therefore, I decided to write this article to help programmers and managers understand this issue.

Golang Project Structure

I came to Go about a year ago. I write in it in my spare time and I like it. I think it’s a very good language for both beginners in IT and those who already have programming experience. To date, I use Go in my personal projects and in professional work.

After a year of using the language in production, I can confidently say that Go has only shown itself from the best side. Having mainly Javascript developers in the team, I had no difficulties in introducing them to the course of things. The readability and simplicity of the language allows you to quickly understand the code. But I wouldn’t say that Go is a simple language.
