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 will glue it all together using a Go backend wrapped in Docker.
In this episode series, we are going to be building a carpooling webapp from scratch. I thought it might be useful to share my thought process and development workflow on going from rough idea to a working minimum viable product. It can be intimidating to create something from nothing, especially if you do not have the technical skills needed to build what you envision, so we will look at ways of breaking things into manageable chunks.
In this episode, we will create a S3 bucket to store static website content. We will review the AWS management console at a high level, talk about S3 bucket permissions, along with manual S3 file uploads.
In this episode series, I thought we would take a look at hosting static websites on AWS, using S3, CloudFront, and Route 53. The plan is to register a domain, create a simple static site, and have it running on AWS, all for just a few dollars a month.
In this episode, we will do a zero-downtime rolling website deployment, across a cluster of nginx web nodes, sitting behind a haproxy load balancer. We will use Ansible to orchestrate the deployment in a repeatable and consistent way.
