Learning more about the ingredients of cloud applications

Learning more about the ingredients of cloud applications

On the intersection between software engineering, cloud computing and data
science, researchers have recently shown increased interest in tangible
software artefacts often used to implement microservice-based applications and
cloud applications in general. These encompass Lambda functions, Helm charts,
Docker containers and other pieces of code with associated metadata and
deployment configuration.

The talk is divided into two parts. First, it presents our plan for a global
observatory on these artefacts, and invites you to join the effort. Second, it
dives deeper on specifically Helm charts, their capabilities and quality
issues, and presents a developer-friendly (CI/CD-integrated) quality assurance
tool simply called HelmQA.
