Carlos Sanchez's Publications

  • Security Testing Using Infrastructure-As-Code

    • Agile Record Magazine
    • February 2014
    Authors: Carlos Sanchez

    Infrastructure-As-Code means that infrastructure should be treated as code – a really powerful concept. Server configuration, packages installed, relationships with other servers, etc. should be modeled with code to be automated and have a predictable outcome, re- moving manual steps prone to errors.

  • Binary Repository Management. Patterns for Performance, Security, and Traceability

    • DZone
    • April 22, 2013
    Authors: Carlos Sanchez

    Software development produces both source code and binary artifacts, and both kinds of artifact need to be handled differently. This Refcard assumes basic familiarity with source repository management, and is intended to help you design and configure a binary repository, optimize it for various workflows, and fit it smoothly into your software development lifecycle.
