Workshop: ActiveState Platform Key Features – ActiveState Artifact Repository
ActiveState provides more than just an easy way to install Python, Perl, and other open source language runtimes. As an ActiveState user, learn how to employ the full benefits of the Platform to take the time, hassle and risk out of using open source dependencies.
October 2022’s Highlight: Many DevOps teams are using private artifact repositories that proxy PYPI, which can be a huge security risk.
The Platform now provides the ability to generate your own private Python package repository that includes all of your Python open source package dependencies built with SLSA Level 4 compliance.
This workshop also covers other Platform features such as:
– Creating runtimes with just the open source packages you need: Vetted for maintainability, integrity and commercial use. Handles the resolution of the right versions of your dependencies along with the required native libraries including C libraries.
– Securing your open source supply chain, i.e. identifying vulnerabilities, remediating vulnerabilities, ensuring provenance, automating builds across your SDLC.
– The latest updates and packages, support for older language versions and multiple operating systems, access to our Build Gurus and more.
