🔴 Live Q&A show: Learning Docker and Kubernetes (Ep 211)

Thursday, Apr 13, 10am Pacific, 1700 UTC

Come join me Thursday to get my answers to your burning questions and see what I've been working on (hint: GitOps and GitHub Actions)

Alex Ziskind put me in his video about Docker performance on macOS

LOL, he's a good editor. He put my reaction video on his phone to make it look like we were conversing. Well played, sir!

🐦 Tweet of the week

A good reminder of newer Docker commands, by the (new) Docker Captain Mohammad-Ali A'râbi

🔴 Cloud Native Runtime Security with Falco (Ep 210), Apr 6, 2023

Matt and and I welcomed Jason Dellaluce and Luca Guerra from Sysdig to talk about Falco, a tool I recommend for production clusters and knowing about any bad behavior on your servers.

✅ Autodeploy cohort 1 complete - lessons learned

I'm applying more production lessons and architectures to the GitHub Actions examples and the Argo CD deployment options for the next round of engineers (get on the waitlist if you're interested).

GitHub Actions examples

You've seen my growing set of GitHub Action examples, right?

What do you think? Would a GitHub Actions Workflow that PRs your YAML with a new prod image help you? I'm seeking feedback and thumbs up on a new GH Issue proposing this idea for a workflow.
