Bicep is a DSL developed by Microsoft to simplify the authoring of ARM templates and deploy resources to Azure. Today I will be sharing with you a new Pulumi converter plugin that I have been working on that converts Bicep code to any of the supported Pulumi languages.
This blog post summarizes a presentation by Matt Stephenson at PulumiUP 2023. Matt Stephenson is Senior Principal Software Engineer for Starburst Data and a Puluminary member. He’s deeply involved in the Infrastructure as Code (IaC) space, having contributed to Ansible, been a core contributor to Apache jclouds, and has written many Terraform plugins. He leads infrastructure architecture at Starburst and originally introduced Pulumi to the company. Starburst provides a data lake analytics platform that’s powered by Trino - an open-source distributed SQL query engine designed for running fast analytic queries across large datasets in multiple data sources.
We have a global community made up of people from many different countries, but we also have many local communities. We want to enable our users to meet, share knowledge and ideas, answer questions, and learn about Pulumi and best practices. For that reason, we created the Pulumi User Groups, aka PUGs on Meetup. Members of PUGs will have access to a global network of experts who can offer help, advice, and support on using Pulumi effectively.
Today is International Women’s Day, and this year the theme is #EmbraceEquity - which means creating an equitable environment. An equitable work environment means understanding that everyone, regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity, background, or resources, brings strength to the workforce and that opportunities should be given to them based on their individual needs. For Pulumi, it means a work environment where everyone can share ideas and respect them even when disagreeing.
Denis Willett is a software engineer at the North Carolina Institute of Climate Studies who works on the NOAA Open Data Dissemination Program. His work focuses on leveraging cloud technologies for the development of data processing and machine learning pipelines. Denis did his PhD in Entomology and Nematology at University of Florida and his undergraduate and masters work in Earth Systems at Stanford University. You can read his full bio here.
NOAA Open Data Dissemination (NODD) makes environmental data freely and publicly accessible across Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure (Azure), and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). These data include near real-time satellite imagery, weather models, radar feeds, drought information, ocean databases, and a suite of climate data records among many others. This program supports more than 220 datasets and over 24PB of open data. Since its inception, the program has been growing rapidly, almost doubling in size over the past year.
Why not do good while learning about cloud native tech? Buoyant, Civo, Cockroach Labs, Fairwinds, Pulumi, and Jetstack have teamed up to donate $2 for each virtual booth visitor to World Central Kitchen (WCK), a non-profit committed to providing meals in response to humanitarian crises.
Pulumi is more than a way to build, deploy, and manage your infrastructure and cloud applications. Pulumi is also a strong and vibrant community. We are very excited to announce and showcase our new program of community champions, the Puluminaries!
Creating a place for the Pulumi community to gather, ask questions, get help in real-time, and share successes has been an important part of the explosive growth we’ve seen in both users and customers. The Pulumi community slack has grown to over 7000 members and well over 200,000 messages.
Within those 200,000 messages are years of information kept behind a “walled garden” that is undiscoverable outside Slack’s search capabilities.
March 15th, 2022… just two weeks ago. The Go team released Go 1.18 to the world. What seems like a trivial point release actually brings a huge new feature to the Go language: Generics.
In this article, I want to show you how you can use this new feature to build a great developer experience with your abstractions for your Pulumi programs.
Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re working with the Pulumi community to provide a place to interact and collaborate on Pulumi-based libraries, projects, and educational materials: the Pulumiverse.
