I haven’t posted in awhile because I have taken a new role at IBM and helped lead the development of the new IBM Bluemix Container Service that allows you to run managed Kubernetes clusters on IBM.
For a little background, IBM has introduced a managed Kubernetes Service, for more information please read the announce post here.
Cabin is a pretty cool mobile app that lets you manage your Kubernetes cluster through your Android or iPhone.
Recently at work I have been struggling with building a small/minimized Docker container of a Go app I have been working on. I started with busybox but it has a major short coming… CA certificates. It isn’t trivial to get CA Certs on a busybox container. This problem effectively prevents you from using SSL or TLS with your app… This is a non-starter…
Enter Alpine I was doing some reading and I have seen a couple articles mention Alpine, its effectively a slimmed down version of busybox but it makes it trivially easy to install packages, in my case CA Certificates!
This post has been a long time going and much overdue, it has almost been 12 months since publishing the follow up to my previous post Why I Chose Hugo Over Wordpress. But I am finally going to take the time and explain all the technical parts about how I made this blog work with Hugo.
Setting up the site First to get started you need to install Hugo.
I am finally back with my blog, sorry it has been quite awhile. I just recently finished a migration of my blog my running on Wordpress, which was hosted on WPEngine and is a really awesome service, to Github pages. I got tired of using Wordpress and WPEngine cost me about $30/month… So I decided to migrate the site to Github pages where I can run the site for free.
