Set Terraform Resource properties from an element in a list retrieved by a Data Source – using a local value

Lucas Jellema

Terraform is a platform for implementing Infrastructure as Code. Terraform defines a syntax for describing resources and provides an engine that interprets the resources definitions, compares this desired state with the existing state in the destination environment and subsequently attempts to bring the destination in line with the desired state.

Rapidly spinning up a VM with Ubuntu and k3s (with the Kubernetes Dashboard) on my Windows laptop using Vagrant and Oracle VirtualBox

Marc Lameriks

In November of last year, my colleague Lucas Jellema, wrote an article with the title “Ultra fast, ultra small Kubernetes on Linux – K3S beating minikube”. [https://technology.amis.nl/2019/11/12/ultra-fast-ultra-small-kubernetes-on-linux-k3s-beating-minikube/] For training and demo purposes, on my Windows laptop, I already had an environment with a guest Operating System, Docker and Minikube available […]

OCI Serverless Functions invoking other Functions – synchronous and asynchronously through API Gateway and Streaming

Lucas Jellema 2

OCI allows for cloud native application development, using facilities such as serverless functions, a light weight API gateway, a streaming service for asynchronous communication based on event messaging and built-in monitoring. In previous articles, I have gone over several aspects of serverless functions and API Gateways to create and expose […]

Deprecated: (!First Steps) with Oracle Cloud’s Pub/Sub Service: Oracle Messaging Cloud Service

Lucas Jellema

Fire and forget messaging is a powerful concept. Asynchronous, decoupled communication is key to scalability and independence of services. Oracle Cloud provides a pub/sub solution called Oracle Messaging Cloud Service. This is an HTTP based publish and subscribe mechanism for asynchronous communication – based on persistent messages and durable subscriptions. […]

Scheduling Oracle Cloud Function execution

Lucas Jellema 2

Functions on Oracle Cloud are an important element in any cloud native application architectures. Functions are typically small, well contained and fairly independent pieces of logic to carry out specific tasks. These tasks can be executed upon reception and handling of HTTP requests – a very common use case – […]
