How to start fast your software project with minimum technical debt

Two weeks ago, my friend Dalia asked me what the best approach is to start new software project. Her friend was starting a new project in a startup. I realized that I could have given much more precise advice. That is the reason behind this post.

The following points are representing the starting points, not hard lines that you must keep. It is a software engineering, so you might modify my recommendation to adapt to your needs. The starting point will help you to find the best path.


Centralized logging for kubernetes with fluentd and elasticsearch

I had to setup a centralized monitoring for our production and staging applications. In my company, we saw a need to have an alternative solution (introduction of pricing, etc.) to the google stackdrive logger in place.

Having some bad experience with running Logstash, I decided to go with EFK (elasticsearch, fluentd, and kibana). Plus. I could reuse the existing fluentd deployment definition in the kubernetes github repo, so it was easy to get something running in short time.
