I’m working on a series of articles about Containerization. For the past few months I’ve been having a blast playing with Docker and OpenShift. They’re very cool technologies but the documentation around them is rather mixed. With this series I hope to provide a clear direction for other people adopting this technology and flatten out the learning curve as much as possible.
Everything I write will be from my point of view and hands on experience. This means that all work is from the point of view of a Microsoft centric developer. My workstation runs Windows 10 pro, I use Visual Studio 2017 and when coding I target the .NET framework (.NET Core in this case).
I think this will be valuable because most of the voices I’m seeing in this space are coming from the Open Source community. However, today I think the distinction between being a Microsoft developer and an Open Source developer is meaningless. I wrote Node.js and use a lot of Open Source tooling. I even run Linux (RHEL). So perhaps my earlier Microsoft warning is meaningless.
Regardless – if you have any questions, please let me know and I’ll do my best to get them answered.
