As you probably know reading our blog, Ruby is a dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity. And we want to prove that again by presenting you a new toolkit. Shrine is a file attachments toolkit for Ruby applications.
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) provides a host of options for Node developers to easily deploy the apps. If you read our blog, it means you’re familiar with developing simple Node applications, working with the command line, and have some high level understanding of deploying apps to cloud services. Ok, so let’s start with Node.js on Google Cloud Platform then.
While some argue about what is better in the cloud, AWS or GCP, Google Cloud made some progress and created Cloud Build. You can use Google Cloud Build for continuous build, test and deploy.
Today we’d like to tell you about Corral! This is a serverless MapReduce framework. In a nutshell, Corral is a framework for writing arbitrary MapReduce applications that can be executed in AWS Lambda. It was the result of using Lambda as an execution environment (like Hadoop MapReduce uses YARN).
It’s been a while since our last digest. But since that time we managed to complete several interesting projects, release Ruby guide and move our team of Syndicode Dnipro to the new office in the city center.

Continuing the topic of orchestrating your containers and cloud development, Kubernetes and companies who use it, we’d like you to meet Knative. This is a Kubernetes-based platform that provides a set of middleware components essential for building modern, source-centric, and container-based applications that can run anywhere: on premises, in the cloud, or even in a third-party data center. So, in a nutshell, you can use Knative to manage modern serverless workloads.

You should already know that if there was no Syndicode digest on Friday, it will be delivered on Monday. So, this is happening today. But waiting for a digest is not a stress test we talk about. Actually, we talk about your everyday experience which is the real stress test. Of course, if you’re a good and responsible developer. There’s so much different obstacles you face and problems you solve! And the pressure you feel from your bosses or clients. But if you have chosen this profession – you have no way out. So keep calm and visit psychoanalyst as often as possible. That helps! And read our new Syndicode Digest #56 – Stress test!
