Announcing the General Availability of Harness Developer Hub
We are excited to announce the GA of Harness Developer Hub (HDH), bringing Tutorials, Documentation (including Release Notes), and Certifications in one location.
We are excited to announce the general availability (GA) of Harness Developer Hub (HDH), a modern developer learning platform that brings together Tutorials, Documentation (including Release Notes), and Certifications for all Harness modules and the underlying Harness Platform. This announcement builds on top of the Beta release a few months back.
HDH has three sections geared towards helping developers become experts in software delivery: Tutorials, Documentation, and Certifications.
Get Started with Tutorials
The Beta release was primarily focused on Tutorials and since then we have expanded on both the breadth and depth of the tutorials. Every tutorial is designed with a specific outcome in the end and is powered by a hands-on code/config example that is either available inline or stored in a public GitHub repository. These tutorials are organized under the following sections:
- Build & Test Code
- Deploy Services
- Manage Feature Flags
- Manage Cloud Costs
- Manage Service Reliability
- Orchestrate Security Tests
- Run Chaos Experiments
- Administer Harness Platform
The current list of tutorials is just the beginning. We encourage the broader Harness Community to send in requests for new tutorials through either Pull Request-based contributions or GitHub issues on the public HDH GitHub repository. Increasing our ability to accept such contributions is one of the key reasons behind choosing a documentation-as-code approach for HDH.
Learn More with Documentation
Harness Docs have resided on docs.harness.io since the beginning. As part of the HDH GA, we have migrated all content from docs.harness.io to HDH. Additionally, we have ensured that the previous docs.harness.io based URLs are automatically redirected to their corresponding location on HDH. The Documentation section in HDH is divided into three sections: Module Feature & Reference Docs, Platform Reference & Feature Docs and Release Notes.
Module Feature & Reference Docs
As listed below, each of the Harness modules have their own dedicated section for feature and reference docs:
- Continuous Integration
- Continuous Delivery & GitOps
- Feature Flags
- Cloud Cost Management
- Service Reliability Management
- Security Testing Orchestration
- Chaos Engineering
- Harness FirstGen
Platform Feature & Reference Docs
Administrative tasks that you perform on the common Harness Platform are documented in their dedicated section. The following are some of the key topics included in the Harness Platform docs:
- Secrets Management
- Organizations & Projects
- User Management
- Roles-Based Access Control
- Dashboards & Reports
- Policy as Code
- Terraform Provider
- REST API and API Reference
- Self-Managed Enterprise Edition
Overall release notes in the form of What’s New and Early Access are available in the Documentation section. You can also find module-specific and Harness Platform release notes in this section. And, we are pleased to note that you can now subscribe via RSS to Harness Release Notes.
Become a Harness-Certified Expert
After you have leveraged the Tutorials to get started and the Documentation to gain deeper expertise, it’s time for you to formally become a Harness Certified Expert. You can get started with the Software Delivery Foundations certification today. We will be adding multiple module-specific certifications in the near future. Not only will you be able to learn and strengthen your software delivery skills, but you’ll also be able to certify your skill sets in the Hub and build on your Harness knowledge.
Search & Learn
If you simply want to learn about a specific topic, then we have a new search experience for you. The search results can be filtered by not only Content Type (such as NextGen Docs, FirstGen Docs, Tutorials and Release Notes) but also by Module name. This allows you to reach the content you are looking for with ease.
The Road Ahead
We are excited for this initial launch of the HDH aimed to structure and accelerate the developer learning journey in the context of software delivery. The road ahead involves adding more hands-on tutorials. We will also increase the depth of the feature and reference docs while ensuring that the tutorials and docs content serve as the foundation for you to prepare for and ace your certifications. If you have any feedback for us, please do not hesitate to fill the Feedback form on the bottom right of the HDH home page. Looking forward to hearing from you!
