Urn your projects from a weekend hack to a long-living creation! Loosely drawing from the field known in large software companies as Site Reliability Engineering (SRE), this book distils from these disciplines and addresses issues that matter to makers: keeping projects up and running and providing means to control, monitor, and troubleshoot them.
Most examples use Raspberry Pi, but the techniques discussed also apply to other platforms. This book is about breadth, and in the spirit of making, it visits different technologies as needed. However, the big goal in this book is to create a shift in the reader’s mindset, where weekend hacks are pushed to the next level and are treated as products to be deployed. This book can be a stepping stone for hobbyist makers to develop a broader, professional skill set.
First, the book describes techniques for creating web-browser-based dashboards for projects. These allow project creators to monitor, control, and troubleshoot their projects in real time. Project Reliability Engineering discusses various aspects of creating a web dashboard, such as network communication protocols, multithreading, web design, and data visualization.
Later chapters cover the configuration of the project and the machine it’s running on and additional techniques for project monitoring and diagnosis. These include good logging practices; automatic log and metrics monitoring; and alerting via email and text messages;
A mixture of advanced concepts forms the book's last chapter, touching on topics such as the usage of microservices in complex projects, debugging techniques for object-oriented projects, and fail-saving the project’s software and hardware.
