How well does your book translate to the world of CI/CD with respect to containers and Platform as a Service hosts like OpenShift?  Also are you addressing the Sec part of DevSecOps in your book, and how tied into your pipeline is it?

Thanks

Hello David,

To answer your questions about CI/CD with respect to containers, I cover how tools such as Jenkins 2.0 utilize containers with the pipeline syntax in Chapter 8.
In chapter 8 I cover how Jenkins 2.0 (Blue Ocean) guides you to using Containers but the intent of the chapter is how to use Jenkins 2.0 and the navigate the new UI and understand the pipeline syntax.

In the chapters for Travis CI and Circle CI I demonstrate how to use containers build your own docker images and run them. So to answer your question Jenkins 2.0, Travis, and Circle CI are already guiding you to using Containers, so I cover how to containers with these specific CI tools.

I don't go over Openshift in the book that to me seems like it could be its own book to be honest, the tagline for Openshift is Red Hat OpenShift helps teams deliver faster with containers and Kubernetes and I don't cover Kubernetes in the book.

To answer your question about DevSecOps in Chapter 15 I briefly cover best practices with CI/CD and password and secrets management but in all fairness this could also be an entire book.

I hope this answers your questions.

Jean-Marcel

Wow - thank you for such a comprehensive answer.  If your writing in the book is done to the same level of effort and understanding - I'm excited to read it even though I feel like I'm well versed in the subject!  Thank you so much for taking the time - I am actually interested in really moving all of our pipelines to the new syntax.
