Una década trabajando en Irlanda en Desarrollo Software

Hoy hace diez años que me mudé a Dublín, a empezar un nuevo trabajo. Han sido diez años de mucha actividad, y de gran desarrollo personal y profesional, con cuatro trabajos distintos. Además, coincide casi exactamente con “los años 2010s”. Algunos detalles Lógicamente, el inglés que tengo ahora no es el de hace diez años. Aunque me sorprende que siempre haya momentos que no entiendes, o frases que te lías. Esto es más ser quejica que otra cosa. He desarrollado todo este tiempo mayoritariamente en Python, que era mi objetivo inicial. Es… Read More

Interviewed about microservices

I got interviewed about Microservice and talk a bit about my last book, Hands-on Docker for Microservices with Python. I was an interesting view on what are the most important areas of Microservices and when migrating from Monolith architecture is a good idea. And also talking about related tools like Python, Docker or Kubernetes. Check it the interview here.

Hands-On Docker for Microservices with Python Book

Last year I published a book, and I liked the experience, so I wrote another! The book is called Hands-On Docker for Microservices with Python, and it goes through the different steps to move from a Monolith Architecture towards a Microservices one. It is written from a very practical stand point, and aims to cover all the different elements involved. From the implementation of a single RESTful web microservice programmed in Python, containerise it in Docker, create a CI pipeline to ensure that the code is always high quality, and deploy it… Read More

A Django project template for a RESTful Application using Docker – PyCon IE slides

Just putting here the slides for my presentation in the PyCon Ireland, that are a follow up from this blog post. I’ll try to include the video if/when available. I hand drawn all the slides myself, so it was a lot of fun work! Enjoy! A Django project template for a RESTful application using Docker from Jaime Buelta

Notes about ShipItCon 2017

Disclaimer: I know personally and worked with a good portion of the conference organizers and talkers. I label them with an asterisk*. The ShipItCon finally took place last Friday. I think it’s quite impressive, given the short amount of time since announcing it and being the first edition, that was so well organized. The venue was very good (and fairly unusual for a tech conference), and all the usual things that are easy to take as granted (food, space, projector, sound, etc) work like clockwork. Kudos to the organizers. The conference was… Read More

A Django project template for a RESTful Application using Docker

I used what I learn and some decisions to create a template for new projects. Part of software development is mainly plumbing. Laying bricks together and connecting parts so the important bits of software can be accessing. That’s a pretty important part of the work, but it can be quite tedious and frustrating. This is somehow a very personal work. I am using my own opinionated ideas for it, but I’ll explain the thought process behind them. Part of the idea is to add to the discussion on how a containerised Django… Read More
