What’s new on Drupal.org? – September 2016

Read our Roadmap to understand how this work falls into priorities set by the Drupal Association with direction and collaboration from the Board and community.
This month’s update comes to you a couple weeks late, but only because we were on site at DrupalCon together with the community to move the project forward! DrupalCon Dublin was a great event, with the entire Drupal Association staff engaged to make DrupalCon the best place to develop your Drupal skills, learn what’s coming for the project, and sprint on core and contrib. We are tremendously thankful to the community that joins us for DrupalCon, and to the incredible volunteers that help us put on the event. If you couldn’t join us in person, you can still review the session recordings.
Now, on to the updates!
Drupal.org updates
New homepage

Certainly the most visible change to Drupal.org in September was the refresh of our home page. As the front

AWS Developer Tool Recap – Recent Enhancements to CodeCommit, CodePipeline, and CodeDeploy

The AWS Developer Tools help you to put modern DevOps practices to work! Here’s a quick overview (read New AWS Tools for Code Management and Deployment for an in-depth look):
AWS CodeCommit is a fully-managed source code control service. You can use it to host secure and highly scalable private Git repositories while continuing to use your existing Git tools and workflows (watch the Introduction to AWS CodeCommit video to learn more).
AWS CodeDeploy automates code deployment to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances and on-premises servers. You can update your application at a rapid clip, while avoiding downtime during deployment (watch the Introduction to AWS CodeDeploy video to learn more).
AWS CodePipeline is a continuous delivery service that you can use to streamline and automate your release process. Checkins to your repo (CodeCommit or Git) will initiate build, test, and deployment actions (watch Introducing AWS CodePipeline for an introduction).

Blockchain Platform Developed by Banks To Be Open-Source

A blockchain platform developed by a group that includes more than 70 of the world’s biggest financial institutions is making its code publicly available, in what could become the industry standard for the nascent technology, reports Reuters. From the article: The Corda platform has been developed by a consortium brought together by New-York-based financial technology company R3. It represents the biggest shared effort among banks, insurers, fund managers and other players to work on using blockchain technology in the financial markets. Blockchain, which originated in the digital currency bitcoin, works as a web-based transaction-processing and settlement system. It creates a “golden record” of any given set of data that is automatically replicated for all parties in a secure network, eliminating any need for third-party verification. Banks reckon the technology could save them money by making their operations faster, more efficient and more transparent. They are racing to build products using

Netflix Chaos Monkey Upgraded

We are pleased to announce a significant upgrade to one of our more popular OSS projects.  Chaos Monkey 2.0 is now on github!Years ago, we decided to improve the resiliency of our microservice architecture.  At our scale it is guaranteed that servers on our cloud platform will sometimes suddenly fail or disappear without warning.  If we don’t have proper redundancy and automation, these disappearing servers could cause service problems.The Freedom and Responsibility culture at Netflix doesn’t have a mechanism to force engineers to architect their code in any specific way.  Instead, we found that we could build strong alignment around resiliency by taking the pain of disappearing servers and bringing that pain forward.  We created Chaos Monkey to randomly choose servers in our production environment and turn them off during business hours.  Some people thought this was crazy, but we couldn’t depend on the infrequent occurrence to impact behavior.  Knowing

Latest Raspbian upgrade turbocharges Raspberry experience

TeleRead stalwarts may remember that I adopted a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B as a test bed to try out this tiny but popular ultra-cheap one-card compact computing solution. Initially, I wasn’t impressed, although later I had some better experiences with the hardware. My initial disappointments were based chiefly on the shortcomings of Raspberry’s preferred Raspbian OS. This version of Debian, as I reported previously, offered “painfully slow load times” when using Google Docs and when executing most browser-based tasks. That basically led me to abandon the Raspberry.
Until now. Because Raspberry has whipped up a new desktop environment for Raspbian and its associated hardware called PIXEL, “which now officially stands for ‘Pi Improved Xwindows Environment, Lightweight’.” And improved it certainly is. Not only does the new OS front end look far slicker than older versions, with a fully overhauled Windows-style interface and drop-down menus, it’s also far faster. It’s bigger
