VSHN.timer #217: Getting More out of your GitOps Platform

19. Feb 2024

Welcome to another VSHN.timer! Every Monday, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all stuff coming out of our own chat system, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.

This week we’re going to talk about the latest news in the world of GitLab, GitHub, Gitea, Forgejo, and anything else remotely related to Git.

1. Our founder Tobias Brunner has written a post about the new Gitea Actions on his blog, with useful information about setting up runners, configuring instances, and in particular, how to build container images with it. Check it out!


2. Last month, GitLab released new versions of its flagship software, addressing critical security updates. Have you upgraded your instances yet?


3. Yorick Peterse, a software developer from the Netherlands, wrote an interesting account of his time at GitLab, structured into two main sections: an overview of his time at GitLab, and a collection of things he learned as a result of this experience.


4. GitHub uses MySQL to store vast amounts of relational data. This is the story of how the GitHub team seamlessly upgraded their production fleet to MySQL 8.0.


5. The GitHub team is hard at work making it ready for IPv6, which has caused performance degradations recently. But they’re not ready yet, at least at the time of this writing.


Are you eagerly waiting for IPv6 support in GitHub? Are you already using Gitea or Forgejo in production? Would you like to share some Git tips and tricks with our readers? Get in touch with us, and see you next week for another edition of VSHN.timer.
