Ep 128: Calico Networking for Kubernetes and More

In this podcast episode, I talk with Calico's Tomas Hruby from Tigera. We discuss how Calico can be used in many places, including Linux, Windows, containers, bare metal, eBPF, or IP tables mode. And many of us have learned about it through the Kubernetes CNI program.

I wanted to learn more about the project so I found their booth at KubeCon in Detroit last year and invited them to my show. The podcast will be released Friday morning on the podcast apps. However, you can get early access to the web version as a newsletter subscriber.

🐳 UPDATE: Docker no longer sunsetting Free Org on Docker Hub

Docker announced on March 24 they are canceling their plans for Free Org sunsetting on Docker Hub and refunding money anyone spent to upgrade. The open source maintainer community was vocal on their confusing plans weeks back, and docker heard their message and stopped all plans to change Hub plans. 🥳

We’re no longer sunsetting the Free Team plan | Docker
We’re reversing course. After taking in feedback from the community, we’re no longer sunsetting the Free Team plan.

🐦 Tweet of the week

Making the mistakes of the past will continue unless we understand and remember the lessons learned before us. Not every new language, framework, or tool is a new idea and is often built on past works. Those of us that have been around IT for 30+ years remember the pivotal works that changed our minds and influenced a generation of tech workers. We must seek out "old knowledge," or we'll be doomed to make the mistakes of the past.

🥳 Docker memory lane

Eric Smalling, a friend working at Snyk (and Docker Captain and High Fiver) wrote a great "down memory lane" style accounting of the last ten years.
