Scott Hanselman on Witter: “Why should I care about Kubernetes, Docker, and Container Orchestration?”

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/02/08

An important question for many people, so if you want to know more or get started: [WayBack] Scott Hanselman on Twitter: “Why should I care about Kubernetes, Docker, and Container Orchestration?” followed by:

Yes, AKS is Azure Container Services (go figure!).

Notes

  • For burning, Scott recommends [WayBack] Etcher: Burn images to SD cards & USB drives, safely and easily (which is now also available as experimental [WayBackEtcher CLI), I tended to use a script like below since I’m a command-line person, but since Etcher does write and verify in one run, I’m considering switching:
    1. find where the SD card is mounted on your Mac: diskutil list
    2. sudo su -
    3. execute this from the directory where you downloaded filling in targetDevice with the value from diskutil list

    targetDevice="disk9"
    imageName="2017-11-29-raspbian-stretch-lite"
    unzip -o ${imageName}.zip
    diskutil umount "/dev/${targetDevice}s1"; \
    dd bs=1m of="/dev/r${targetDevice}" if=${imageName}; \
    sync; \
    diskutil list; \
    diskutil eject "/dev/${targetDevice}"

Quite some time ago, I attended a great introductory elasticsearch/kibana workshop by Martijn Laarman (@Mpdreamz, github.com/Mpdreamz and SO martijn-laarman) that lead me into researching a lot of interesting new things:
