In this episode, I wanted to share a few tips for how I create architecture diagrams. Often times you need to write technical documentation, or share knowledge with other team members, and having an architecture diagram can really help. Here's what works for me.
In this episode, we are going to walk through an end-to-end workflow for creating animated GIFs using Docker and ImageMagick. I wanted to highlight this useful pattern for using utility containers on your desktop because it delivers very reproducible results.
In this episode, we will checking out an IP Geolocation Beta feature using Google Cloud Load Balancers. Using this feature, you can use the Load Balancer to inject additional user defined HTTP headers with IP Geolocation data for user requests.
In this episode, we are going to set up a very simple end-to-end automated container deployment pipeline. We will walk through going from a "git push", to a deployed change with zero downtime, in around a minute.
In this episode, we are going to check out Kubernetes, which is very popular for Container Orchestration. We will explore what Kubernetes is, why people are using it, and then look at how it works by way of deploying an example application.
In this episode, I will be running you through a bit of a crash course, on the terminology and tooling involved in running a larger production container stack. This can be a complex topic, so here is a brain dump of how I make sense of it all (map included).
In this episode, we are going to be building a simple web service to extract metadata from Image files. We will create an upload form using DropzoneJS, extract the metadata in JSON using ImageMagick, and we'll glue it all together using a Go backend wrapped in Docker.
