Easy way to use Docker container secrets on AWS ECS
This is my Dutch Docker Day talk "Dockerize your Development Workstation"
As a consultant I am doing a lot of things, so to keep up I have always used some form of a TODO list. The reason why I did this is because it helped me break down my tasks in to smaller ones and keep focusing, but also because I kept remembering the quote I once heard “smart people write things down, dumb people try to remember it”.
It’s been a while I have tinkered with my Android phone, I thought it’s time to root and play around. How hard can it be right? I have done this 100 times before. You already know where this is going, 2+ hours of flashing rebooting until it worked…. :)
This is my Xebicon talk "Continuous Delivery of Docker Images"
I have not blogged for quite some time now, I just had no fun with it anymore. But as I have done very cool things in the past two years I am actually sad that I haven’t shared my knowledge with the world.
I started using Linux years ago and I tried a lot of distributions but Ubuntu was always my main distribution on my work laptop. The reason why I used Ubuntu was simple, it worked and it did not have a lot of maintenance if you didn't customize. But after so many years of Ubuntu I needed a change.
I have bean writing applications in Java EE environment for some time now and I didn't need to worry about creating own threads. When I needed to create and manage my own threads it always felt wrong because of to much low level programming. Then I came across akka and wanted to try it out.
I worked with Apache for a long time and I never had the chance to do something with nginx until now. I decided to try nginx and see if I can get it up and running. In this post you can find the steps needed to make the nginx 1.4 available on your Ubuntu.
Having setup Apache and Nginx I wanted to see how they performed. I am not trying to do a scientific performance test here, I am just interested in how Nginx behaves because I haven't used it before.
