Orchestration, Code, Deployment, Infrastructure

on Wed, 01/14/2015 - 10:43

Managing code is a solved problem. Git plus Github are everything we need and more. Docker and LXC containers, plus Ansible, Puppet, Chef, on IaaS like AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure provide previously unimaginable possibles for deploying services onto consistent infrastructure. Yet no web application is really whole without data, and, in fact the code, data, and infrastructure all need to fit together in exactly the right way, or you don't have an application, you have an unholy mess.

Either you can refresh the Well-Tempered Clavier website every five minutes and find out that way, or you can sign up for Kimiko's mailing list, and get a notification directly. Your choice.

Kimiko Ishizaka's "Goldberg Variations" are now on Bandcamp

on Thu, 12/18/2014 - 21:17

Bandcamp is a service that allows musicians to release albums for distribution. It's ideal for the Open Goldberg Variations (and for the upcoming Open Well-Tempered Clavier) recording because it supports the "pay what you want" model. This allows us to offer the files for gratis download, but fans can still decide to pay an amount of their choice to promote Kimiko's efforts to make more recordings and go on more tours. Some of Kimiko's fans are very generous! The other advantages of Bandcamp are the natural audience that they bring (people search the site to discover new music), the high quality of the transcoding and metadata, analytics, and a very nicely designed landing page for albums and artists. Color me impressed.

Download the libre "Open Goldberg Variations" for gratis, or a price of your choosing.
