Locafox Ops Stack 101: The Foundation

At Locafox we are aiming to rule the world, at least the local-commerce part of the internet. For that we need a solid foundation that enables our developers and operational staff (some say DevOps) to do awesome stuff.

DevOps Challenge

I wrote an Ops challenge a few months we had a bunch of people complete. The main reason was to see if they were able to properly provision a Linux server using some form of automation. There were solutions submitted using Ansible, Chef, Docker & Go.

I’m posting the challenge on our blog now in-case anyone else wants to try and complete it.

Go Engineer

We love Go here at Locafox. We already use it quite extensively to manage our AWS-based cloud infrastructure, but we also want to build systems that can process the large volumes of data we receive more efficiency.
