Mission Context

Inside the Software Engineering Department of the Identity and Access Management Business Unit (IAM BU), the Methods & Tools team manages the development infrastructure, and has designed a suite of tools to manage source code, binary packages, dependencies, vulnerabilities and automate builds for continuous integration.

The main mission of the internship (80%) is to improve the ActivBuilder tool to meet user requests and adapt it to the latest continuous integration and cloud technologies such as containerization. A secondary mission (20%) is to turn ActivBuilder into an open source project.


Mission Details

  1. Update the tool’s regression test suite. This will allow the intern to become familiar with the overall software architecture and APIs.
  2. Develop an ActivBuilder plugin to build Docker images and automatically deploy them to Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR).
  3. Turn ActivBuilder into an open source project: cleanup and refactor the source code, make it available in a public repository and create build documentation.
