Google I/O. That’s the developer conference Google holds every year in San Francisco to explore the latest and greatest in tech, including web, mobile and everything in between and beyond! In 2013, only 8% of attendees were women and in 2014, it rose to 20%. This year I was lucky enough to attend I/O and was a part of the record 23% in attendance!
Wherein we explore multiple ways to write a unit test, and further, discovering an alternative that more fully expresses the intent of the code.
As part of our dockerization efforts we needed some software that was not available in the publicly available alpine linux repositories (such as Consul and Weave) and decided to build our own repository so we would have a standard place to put them. While creating the repository it became clear that the existing documentation was outdated, so I decided I would document the steps needed to get a repository set up for Alpine Linux.
I just got back from the Container Camp conference here San Francisco. It was an informative conference with presentations covering a wide range of interesting topics in the containerization ecosystem. There was a lot of discussion about the Docker application suite since they are the dominant player, but there was also good coverage of alternative approaches and presentations on the full spectrum of tooling required to use containers in production.
