Deploying Your Angular Apps (using containers) – ngVikings Talk

I had the opportunity to attend and speak at ngVikings this year in Copenhagen, Denmark which was a lot of fun. Copenhagen is a beautiful city and the conference organizers did a great job putting the event together. One of the talks I gave at the conference covered deploying Angular applications using containers. While the focus was on Angular and any services it may call, the concepts can really be applied to any front-end back-end application or service. Topics covered in the talk include: Deployment Challenges What is Docker? Images and Containers Orchestration with Docker Compose Orchestration with Kubernetes (introductory […]


4 kubectl Commands to Help Debug Pod Issues in Kubernetes

If you’ve worked with containers a lot you’re probably good at commands like docker logs and docker exec to retrieve information about containers that may be having problems.

CloudSkills Podcast Interview: Docker, Kubernetes, and Microservices

I recently chatted with my friend Mike Pfieffer who runs the CloudSkills.fm podcast about Docker, Kubernetes, and Microservices.

We discussed the benefits of containers, the role of Kubernetes, and how both can play an important role when working with Microservices.

New Pluralsight Course: Docker for Web Developers

How I Got Into Docker (and why you should too) One of the most exciting technologies that I’ve researched and used over the past year is Docker. That’s a pretty bold statement, especially since I enjoy working with a lot of different technologies, so let me share a quick story about how I initially got started with Docker and and my personal journey (if you’d prefer you can jump directly to the Docker for Web Developers Course). You may have heard the term “Docker” tossed around at work or online and wondered what it was…I know I did. I heard […]
